Resumen:
Una empresa británica que trabaja en el sector de investigación oceánica busca compañías con experiencia en desarrollo de embarcaciones marítimas para presentar una propuesta a una acción piloto del programa H2020. El objetivo es lanzar una nueva máquina de recogida y compactación de residuos oceánicos. Los microplásticos pueden alcanzar la cadena alimentaria junto con las toxinas integradas. La empresa busca cooperación para desarrollar una embarcación de recogida de residuos que incorpore una compactadora y una máquina de transferencia de plásticos, además de un sistema de captura y almacenaje de energía (solar y eólica). Los socios buscados son empresas con experiencia en instrumentos marítimos, fabricación, navegación, captura de energía, automatización, biología marina, robótica y programación informática. El plazo para presentar expresiones de interés finaliza el 14 de diciembre de 2019.

H2020 Pilot action for the removal of plastics and litter - seeking expertise in several areas
Summary:
A UK company working in ocean research is seeking a range of companies with expertise in marine vessel development to join a range of EU companies in their H2020 bid, to launch a novel machine for the collection and compaction of ocean waste. They are seeking companies with expertise in areas including marine instruments, manufacturing, navigation, energy harvesting, automation, marine biology, robotics, and computer programming via research cooperation agreements.
Description:
Marine litter is high on the scientific and political agendas and of major concern for European citizens. More than 80 percent of marine litter is plastic. It is estimated that by 2050, more plastic could be in the ocean than fish. It can be found on beaches (mostly produced locally), on the ocean surface, in animals and on the seafloor. Microplastics can get into the food chain, together with the integrated and adsorbed toxins. It is estimated that each year 5 to 13 million tonnes plastics reach the seas and oceans (worldwide), becoming eventually the main source of microplastics. In addition to possible health risks, the damage to marine ecosystems and the blue economy (tourism and other maritime sectors) due to plastic litter are enormous.

A UK company are seeking additional partners to apply for the H2020 Pilot action for the removal of marine plastics and litter, to help co-develop an waste-collecting, transporting vessel, the collector head, compactor and plastic transfer machinery, to be included in a purpose built boat hull that also includes an energy harvesting and storage system (solar and wind). The company currently works in ocean research and has expertise including marine manufacturing, equipment fabrication, CAD design and engineering.

They are also seeking ICT companies to program computers that read from the instruments/sensors and control the filtration plant, and to wirelessly navigate to ports and park the machines individually for emptying to operate individually or in fleets.

Finally, they require manufacturing or retail partners to assist in developing a recycling chain.

They are seeking partners via research cooperation agreement, and expressions of interest close in this profile on 14 December 2019.

The bid closes on 20 January 2020.
Advantages and Innovations:
* Self contained litter recovery machine
* Operable in blue water and shallows
* Zero carbon operation and processing
* Selectively filters plastic from wildlife
* Transportable to plastic hotspots
* Works with satellites for plastic data logging and geodata dissemination
* Able to work in fleets with suitable software
* Long service life

The development or pilot version of this ocean cleaning machine is a versatile platform that may be set up in various ways to collect floating marine plastic and litter or adjustable to various depths to collect from shores, subsurface.

The machine is designed to be wirelessly remote operated via satellite, or as a drone with human steerage.

A range of litter sizes can be collected, from solids several hundred millimeters to microplastics, using selective filters and computer based automation, coupled with sensors.

A substantial holding tank allows transport of collected plastic to port, with the eventual inclusion of a transfer at sea option to a factory ship for treatment and recycling.
