City Pilot Program
Cleanup, Prevention & Measurable Impact.
The Seabin mission is simple. To live in a world without the need for Seabins. We will accomplish our mission using
- Measurable Impact.
The issue of plastics in our oceans is an everybody’s problem and it will take all of us to fix it.
WHAT IS THE CITY PILOT?
The City Pilot is our first step in providing a full services package to a city.
We are excited to make Sydney our world first pilot city in trialing our fully managed services package. This is a 12 month pilot initially self-funded by Seabin Project with the goal to obtain funding and support by all key stakeholders.
Not only will we be removing marine debris and surface pollutants all day, every day. Our units will be managed by our Environmental Technicians in conjunction with our Pollution Index program to provide measurable impact and community engagement.
Our Enviro Technicians will be responsible for the servicing and maintenance of the units, daily marine data entries, engaging with community members and facilitating educational events. The Seabin Enviro Technician is essentially our brand ambassador, combining Cleanup, Prevention and Measurable Impact activities to achieve our goal of turning off the tap and for cleaner oceans.
WHAT IS THE POLLUTION INDEX?
Our Pollution Index data program has been successfully operating for 4 years. Developed to help provide a measurable impact, its aim is for monitoring the health of our waterways and providing governing bodies key information needed to fill knowledge gaps critical for decision making.
Our goal for the Pollution index is to be recognised by the United Nations Development Program as a key indicator for their Life Below Water Goal (SGD14) – Life Below Water Goal
WHAT WILL WE ACHIEVE?
The pilot includes 20 units in multiple Sydney Harbour locations. We estimate that in 12 months, 28 tons of microplastics, marine litter and plastic fibers will be removed by filtering 4.3 billion liters of water. Oil, fuel and other surface pollutants are also filtered daily.
The global fleet removes an estimated 3,613 kgs of marine litter, including ocean bound plastic. 500 million litres of water is filtered daily. The most important aspect is that these units remove the rubbish you can’t see. Microplastics.
Of all the types of rubbish, the microplastics pose to have the greatest impact on our marine life. Hard for the eyes to see and the hand to grab, but easy for the fish to find. Our units collect microplastics smaller than 1mm in size, daily. The community engagement and social media reach is expected to be of significant proportions.
WHAT ARE WE AIMING FOR?
Rubbish bins on land – Seabin’s in the water.
Creating scalable employment opportunities. Our goal is to have serviced Seabin units in Sydney Harbour. Placed in strategic locations around Sydney, Working 24/7, these units will help keep our waters clean, be highly visual, a platform for educational activities and provide baseline data for measurable impact and the health of the waterways.
