Marine ecology is being seriously damaged by the inability to break down plastic waste. 2 Recycling rethinks the design of recycling equipment. It can be installed in the ocean’s current belt and it generates electricity using an ocean current generator. This creates a vortex in the water tank of 2 Recycling, the mechanism by which garbage flows into the water tank. The garbage is then channelled into the garbage barrel by centrifugal action. In addition to cleaning up our oceans, 2 Recycling may also be used to generate power for electricity.
