Projects

City Storm Drains:

When it rains debris and trash enter the storm drain system & curb inlets creating nuisance and discharges into the local waterways. Our city storm drains and curb inlets contribute a significant amount of trash into our ocean. The city needs to implement a trash prevention program to significantly reduce trash entering the ocean.

Boat Marinas & Ship Yards:

Florida has more than 1 million recreational boats. Marinas are the frontline of ocean trash coming in or going out into the ocean.
Certain marinas are prone to accumulate a vast amount of trash due to their relative position relative to tides and currents.
There is no ordinance that deals with the responsibility to remove that trash.

Solutions:

FOCUS Ocean Vac

  

We have been designing and developing a prototype trash removal system to install it in Dinner Key Marina as part of a pilot program with City of Miami.
Our goal is to make a trash skimmer affordable and effective to remove a significant amount of trash that other designs fall short to do.
Estimated cost: $8,000-$10,000
