A loft of plastic litter (bottles, bags…) end up in harbours, marinas and canals. WasteShark, a robotic boat by a Dutch company (Rana Marine) takes care of collecting this floating waste. The robot behaves the shark whale style to clean urban waters. Video 1 shows WasteShark in action.

Plastic pollution is a very problem dramatic as shown in Video 2. Unfortunately, the WasteShark robot can’t cope with rough waters. There is however another the Ocean Cleanup Project aiming exactly at this (see Video 3). Its goal is to develop a solution to clean up 50 % of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch in 5 years.
