Incorporating existing technology that is readily available, the Ocean ReCapture Polymer Harvesting Project, aka Operation ReCapture, is proposing to utilize a process what we have named “Cyclic Evaporation” which entails using heat, provided by sources of Renewable Energy to power a mechanized method of separating the salt, laden with plastic or polymer, from the water.
Sounds good? We believe so!
With costings comparable to oil rig manufacture, we have estimates on system costs and know the locations in which the OSB Systems, or Ocean Skimmer Box Systems, will be positioned. We have invited several Marine Biologists and other scholars to critique this directive.
Current spending estimates per year are in the vacinity of over 20 billion dollars (US). This is based on several earlier articles by Cambridge and other schools indicating budgetary constraints used for cleaning up beachfront plastic alone.
