Title
(EN) A METHOD AND A SYSTEM FOR COLLECTING FLOATING OBJECTS ON A SURFACE OF WATER
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET SYSTÈME DE COLLECTE D'OBJETS FLOTTANTS SUR UNE SURFACE D'EAU
Abstract
(EN) A method and system for collecting objects floating on or suspended near a surface of water. A collecting system is employed comprising a floating barrier. The collecting system is unanchored to or on the seabed such that the collecting system is free to move along the surface of the water. A submerged portion and non-submerged portion is provided connected to the floating barrier, such that a velocity of the floating barrier along the surface of the water differs from a surface velocity of the water at the location of the floating barrier. Collected plastic objects can be recycled. Further, the ocean currents are followed while being able to collect plastic.
(FR) Cette invention concerne un procédé et un système de collecte d'objets flottant sur une surface d'eau ou suspendus à proximité de celle-ci. Un système de collecte comprenant une barrière flottante est utilisé. Le système de collecte est non ancré au fond marin de telle sorte que le système de collecte est libre de se déplacer sur la surface de l'eau. Une partie immergée et une partie non immergée sont reliées à la barrière flottante, de telle sorte qu'une vitesse de la barrière flottante sur la surface de l'eau diffère d'une vitesse de surface de l'eau à l'emplacement de la barrière flottante. Les objets plastiques collectés peuvent être recyclés. En outre, les courants océaniques sont suivis pendant la collecte du plastique.
