The company Ranmarine has introduced a technological solution to address plastic pollution in water bodies. This is the WasteShark , an autonomous marine drone that is already being used in Dutch ports to efficiently collect waste in rivers and seas.

WasteShark Marine Drone: What is it and how does it work?

WasteShark is a device with a shape similar to a pedal, which has a length of 1.22 meters and acts as a small floating container with a capacity to capture up to 160 liters of waste . This device operates autonomously, collecting waste and returning by itself to its station to be emptied.

This marine drone stands out for its exceptional efficiency, being capable of collecting up to 500 kg of waste daily . With an autonomy of 8 hours, wide operational range and advanced route planning system, the drone is presented as an innovative and effective solution to address environmental challenges in our oceans and rivers.

Despite its compact dimensions, the WasteShark stands out for its effectiveness in confined spaces such as ports. Its design is aimed at focusing on specific areas to prevent waste from submerging, becoming unreachable.

This drone not only excels in cleaning efficiency, but also in terms of costs. Additionally, it is easy to maintain thanks to its electronic propulsion system that promotes a zero-carbon emissions approach. Surprisingly, their annual energy expenditure is equivalent to watching television for five hours a day. Likewise, the operation of the WasteShark does not require specialized knowledge; Well, following basic instructions, anyone can handle it, only needing someone to empty its container.

Another positive aspect is that this aquatic drone operates without generating carbon emissions , aligning with global efforts to decontaminate the oceans. Its batteries can be recharged using conventional electricity or solar panels .

When moving, it does not produce gases or emit toxic fumes, moving silently without disturbing the local fauna. Furthermore, thanks to its lightness, it can be easily transported to respond to emergencies in different bodies of water. Definitely, the WasteShark is a clear example of how technology can be an ally in the preservation of the aquatic ecosystem.
