The Seabin Project

About the Entry

Seabin Project is an automated rubbish bin for the water in marinas and commercial docks. Seabin project includes an educational program for local schools, sports clubs and social groups to interact with Seabins. The real solution for us is education.

Features & Benefits


Cleaning the oceans one marina at a time

The Seabin project is an automated rubbish bin that is installed in the water and strategically situated in problematic areas of marinas to catch all floating pollution including oils and fuels.

The Seabin V5 has been developed to fit fixed and floating docks and we are investigating alternative power methods for the 24 volt water pump we are trialing now.

Our manufacturer has factories on three continents which will be cutting down on logistics and lowering the Seabins carbon footprint.

Parallel with the product we are drafting a program to be included in the sale of each Seabin to have local schools interacting with the Seabins.

This is the real solution. Education.

Key Sustainability Design Features and Benefits

We are in talks now with Parley for the Oceans to produce the Seabins using captured ocean plastics and aiming for a circular plastic economy.

We are testing 5 kilograms of Polyethylene now using rotational molding and think we may be able to use up to 80-90 % of recycled plastics.

Our manufacturer has facilities on 3 continents to cut down on logistics and minimise our carbon footprint while boosting local economy.

Currently we are trialing a 24 volt pump to power the Seabins which also has the options for solar, wind and wave power as well as solar credits.

The materials used in the manufacturer of Seabins will be completely recyclable and one day we aim to not have the need for Seabins due to cleaner oceans.
