Sydney is the first city in the world to filter and monitor microplastics 24/7
The objective of the 100 smarter cities program is to improve water quality and reduce environmental impact of a city
The 31 Seabin units across the Harbour, filter Sydney’s waterways of plastics, mircoplastics, fuel, oil and other harmful contaminants
The data collated from these catches is recorded and analysed by Seabin’s in-house marine scientists, allowing Seabin to depict pollution trends, assess the effectiveness of policy making (such as single use plastic bans) and influence positive behavioral change.
The aim of the Seabins Smart City Program is to support sustainable cities, through the cleanup and monitoring, of ocean and waterway health
From June 2020 – October 2022 Seabin’s Smart City Program Sydney has:
• Filtered over 13.5 billion litres of water
• Collected over 100 tonnes of marine litter
• Collected over 4.4 million items of plastic including over 1.7 million microplastics
