Un estudiante de 19 años inventa un sistema para limpiar los océanos de plástico

29 marzo 2013 - 9:15 - Autor:

Los desechos de plástico están contaminando los mares y seguirán ahí durante siglos si no hacemos nada. Boyan Slatun joven holandés, ha combinado ecologismo, creatividad y tecnología para hacer frente a este problema de una manera efectiva con un concepto llamado Ocean Cleanup Array, que podría eliminar (según sus estimaciones) 7 millones de toneladas de residuos plásticos de los océanos del mundo al año; y gracias a atacar el problema desde la superficie, limpiando las enormes islas de este material que flotan en los mares.

Si Mahoma no va a la montaña, Boyan quiere ir a su encuentro para quitarle el chubasquero con un sistema de barreras flotantes en lugar de redes, que abarquen áreas mucho más grandes de agua y que pudieran ser enviadas a los lugares del mundo donde se concentra el plástico para su recogida y reciclaje, como si fuera un embudo-colador gigante.

El ángulo de los brazos obligaría al plástico a ir en la dirección de las plataformas, donde se separaría del pláncton, para posteriormente ser filtrado y almacenado para su reciclaje y venta, de tal manera que hiciera de todo el proceso un sistema rentable económicamente.

Según afirma el joven, su solución podría potencialmente ahorrar la vida a cientos de miles de animales acuáticos que mueren por los plásticos al año; y reducir los contaminantes (incluidos los PCB y el DDT) que se acumulan en la cadena alimentaria.También podría ahorrar millones de euros, tanto en los costes de limpieza, como en el turismo perdido o los daños a las embarcaciones marinas.

Sí, es sólo un concepto, quizá demasiado soñador para los tiempos que vivimos; pero también esconde un espíritu que nos hace ser optimistas con el potencial de nuestros jóvenes para atacar problemas que no pueden abarcar los mayores.

Este estudiante de primer año de Ingeniería Aeroespacial se pasó un verano entero analizando el tamaño y la cantidad de partículas de plástico en los parches de basura del océano. Su trabajo final ganó varios premios, incluyendo el de Mejor Diseño Técnico 2012 en la Universidad Tecnológica de Delft. Boyan continuó desarrollando su concepto durante el verano de 2012, y lo descubrió varios meses más tarde nada menos que en las charlas TEDxDelft 2012.

Luego creó la Fundación Cleanup Ocean, una organización sin ánimo de lucro que se encarga de la elaboración de sus tecnologías propuestas. Y muy pronto tendrá el primer prototipo operativo para mostrarselo a todos. Le deseamos toda la suerte del mundo en tan titánica empresa.

Magnifica idea, tomen nota lis gobiernos

Enhorabuena y mucho ánimo, espero que salga algo factible de esta idea, o de cualquier otra, que ayude a limpiar el océano.

Lamentablemente, el océano no es una piscina, como parece en las fotos. Pero seguro que algo habrán discurrido para dominar el oleaje.

que buenisima idea!!!!

Importante es limpiar el Mar, pero mas importante es no ensuciarlo,
Educacion en los colegios y hogares y reducción de los envases de usar y tirar, seguido de una adecuada gestión de los residuos para que esos plasticos no lleguen al mar.

disinerge con ser los brazos retráctiles cuando supere el oleaje critico seria su solución digo yo y la electricidad del propio oleaje (dinamo)
– ahora me pregunto ¿porque se tiene que buscar la vida pidiendo dinero? que no malgastamos nuestros impuestos…. como ejemplo españa en sobres y sobornos … que tenga suerte

Menos mal que el chaval no es español, no tendría ninguna posibilidad. Suerte.

La idea es tremendamente sencilla, lógica, simple y necesaria. A mí mismo se me ocurrió hace años.
El mérito del chaval: hacer el diseño, redactar el proyecto y buscar “los cuartos”.
Incluso se me ocurren, así de bote pronto, unas cuantas ideas para hacer el aparato más ecológico y barato pero, claro, también nada atractivo para empresario alguno.
Pero bueno, estas ideas así son las que necesitan apoyo, y no las de crear crisis para luego montar “corralitos” por doquier.

En hora buena por tan brillante proyecto y ojala termine en buen puerto

¿Y si una embarcación se cruza en su camino?
Supongamos que un carguero o trasatlántico se lo encuentra en su camino.

¿Para limpiar los océanos de plástico?
No. Para limpiar de plástico los océanos.
Los océanos son de agua, no de plástico.

Todo
lo que se haga para mejorar la salud denuestro planeta,bienvenido sea.

Me parece una buenísima idea, ole ,ole, ole…..

Si se cruza otra embarcación, no pasa nada, nos encontramos con una embarcación con maniobra restringida. El resto de barcos deberán de maniobrarle.

Wonderful blog! I found it while browsing on Yahoo News. Do you have any suggestions on how to
get listed in Yahoo News? I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Appreciate it

Cuando la pensamos en diseño, imaginamos productos para ser vendidos, fabricados por una industria y dirigidos a los consumidores. Pero muchos diseñadores hemos aprendido que es necesaría la “responsabilidad social” en la práctica del diseño. Es decir, un diseño orientado hacia las personas, que busca trabajar para y por las personas, y que tenga algo más que el beneficio de una transacción de compraventa de servicios.

Es una idea fenomenal

Magnifico invento de este joven para que los animales marinos no queden enrredados con redes y plásticos que tardan un monton de años en extinguirse.
Sobretodo concienciar a la gente que no tiren mas basura en el mar o en rios.
Hay mucho guarro e incivilizado por ahi.

Me gustaría saber si con este sistema que dice recoger hasta las partículas más pequeñas de plástico no es peligroso que los propios animales queden atrapados en él?
Por otra parte me alegro mucho que existan jóvenes que por fin vayan tomando el relevo y den un giro al mundo

Deberia Inventar algo asi para tanto politico cabron

Gracias por lo que haces y si en algo puedo ayudar dimelo. un beso.

wow, this is great!

I really like getting the letters, but please tend not to go telling folks they are likely to have about one a week. We have been lucky to receive one particular a month. You need to do a little better than that….or halt the pinocchio stories at the quite least. If just one a month is what it is, then that’s what it is.

Enjoyed examining this, very good stuff, thanks . “Be not careless in deeds, nor confused in words, nor rambling in thought.” by Marcus Aurelius Antoninus.

Incredible points. Sound points. Continue the great spirit.

I am really enjoying the theme/design of your site. Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility issues? A small number of my blog audience have complained about my website not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Safari. Do you have any advice to help fix this problem?

An intriguing discussion is definitely worth comment. There’s no doubt that that you need to publish more about this topic, it might not be a taboo subject but typically people do not discuss such topics. To the next! Kind regards!!

Hands down, Apple’s software package store profits by a distance. It is a plethora of all sorts involving iphone vs . a rather unhappy range of a couple just for Microsoft zune. Master of science offers blueprints, specifically in your realm of game titles, yet I have no idea I might want to solution relating to the long term future issue feature is important for you personally. The ipod and iphone can be described as superior option if that’s so.

La intención es buena… pero el diseño no.

El problema de un chaval de 19 años es que ha tenido una idea y cree que todo lo que puede imaginar se puede construir… pero te pones a analizar el diseño y no hay por donde cogerlo porque no es viable estructuralmente ni tampoco se puede fabricar ya que es imposible que alguien de esa edad tenga los conocimientos de ingeniería necesarios para dimensionar dicha maquina.

Ojo, no critico por criticar es simplemente que me parece que esta noticia es humo porque esto de “inventa una maquina” sin tener más que un diseño concepto modelado seguramente con 3DstudioMax no es inventar nada.

La prueba está en que el tiempo me dará la razón y esto quedara en nada igual que el coche ese volador de un ingeniero aeronáutico que es otro full de Estambul.

Saludos.

claro si fuera español no seria investigador seria perroflauta y con ganas de protestar por la cara

que buena idea!
el mundo es un lugar posible con personas como este joven… vi comentarios de cancheros que dicen que esto no es posible… jejejejeje Eso se llama ENVIDIA.
