There is a substantial amount of pollution that goes into our oceans every day. This can come in the form of garbage, plastic, metal, or even raw sewage. This problem gets worse every year as the population continues to expand. People have tried to come up with ways to dispose of municipal solid waste, but the sheer volume of it often makes the ocean a likely place for some of this to end up in. If you are trying to think of ideas on how to save our oceans from the pollution that is contaminating it, here are a few possibilities that might help.
Create A Company Solely Focused Upon Ocean Cleanup
A business that is focused on cleaning up the ocean might be the best solution. There are actually companies that have done this already. A business started by two friends that were surfers called 4Ocean have created a multimillion dollar business that has cleaned up an incredible amount of trash. They actually have bracelets that you can purchase for $20 that will effectively help remove 1 pound of trash from the ocean. Although this may have seemed like a far-fetched idea years ago, it is often those ideas which seem ridiculous which are the ones that we consider to be the best now.
Step Up Recycling Efforts At Your Local MSW Facility
If you want to recycle more municipal solid waste at one of these facilities is to integrate a pyrolysis machine. These are able to take organic material, plastic, rubber, and other materials that can be extracted and convert those into burnable fuels. The process is very simple. The materials are chipped up, made much smaller, and are put into a pyrolysis reactor. The oxygen is removed, and once it reaches a certain temperature, chemical processes will occur. This will lead to the production of charcoal and burnable fuel that can be sold. The cost of these operations can be offset by the immediate sale of these materials that are in high demand.
Solving ocean pollution issues does not have to be difficult. Almost anyone can think of great ideas. Sometimes all it takes is someone with one good idea, that has the funding and the time to implement that idea, that will change the way we are as a society in the future. Hopefully people will expand upon what 4Ocean has done, and also step up recycling efforts with pyrolysis machines and reactors at local MSW facilities.
