Device to clean-up Great Pacific Garbage Patch could harm wildlife, warn conservationists

  
A controversial scheme to clean up plastic in the Pacific Ocean could harm wildlife and release unnecessary greenhouse gases into the air, conservationists have warned. On September 9th, The Ocean Cleanup foundation will launch a device to sweep up plastic in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch and remove it from the water. The system uses a 2000ft long u-shaped floating cylinder with a 10ft skirt beneath which moves along with the current capturing plastic as it goes. The refuse is corralled into a small area and then picked up by boat every few months and taken to land for processing and recycling. A section of the floating system which will move with the water currents collecting plastic  Credit: The Ocean Cleanup The Ocean Cleanup claims that full-scale deployment of their system could clean up 50 per cent of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch in just 5 years. However marine experts claim the project could do more harm than good. Dr Sue Kinsey, Senior Pollution Policy Officer at the Marine Conservation Society (MCS) said: "We have serious concerns about the Ocean Cleanup and its effectiveness.  "It seems likely that wildlife will be affected, especially the smaller floating plankton that many creatures depend on and those organisms that passively float in the oceans who won't be able to avoid these arrays.    "Also much of this litter is distributed throughout the water column and this may only pick up the surface material." Some of the plastic picked up from The Great Pacific garbage patch during monitoring  Credit: The Ocean Cleanup  The MCS also warned that the time and energy it takes to collect and return the waste could result in large amounts of greenhouse gases and carbon, and called for organisations to do more to stop litter entering oceans in the first place.  The Great Pacific Garbage Patch, which is located between California and Hawaii is the area where plastic rubbish accumulates because of ocean currents, known as gyres which act like a vortex pulling waste into a central channel. It is around three times the size of Spain. Research by the foundation found that, at its peak, the patch contains around 330lbs of plastic per square mile, reducing to 33lbs at the outer edges. The project to clean up the patch is the brainchild of Boyan Slat, a 24 year old Dutch inventor and entrepreneur, who founded the foundation in 2013. Last month the company published its Environmental Impact Assessment and found there was a 'medium' risk to sea turtles who found themselves trapped within the floating tube system. The cleanup system works by using a floating cylinder with a trailing skirt which picks up debris Credit: The Ocean Cleanup A survey of 15 experts by the ecologist and shark researcher David Shiffman of Simon Fraser University in Vancouver also found that it is unlikely that the floating device will clean up a significant amount of plastic without harming wildlife. One in four believed that the entire concept is "a bad idea with little or no redeeming value." Writing on the website Southern Fried Science Dr Shiffman said: "This device is designed to aggregate objects of a certain size to remove them from the water but cannot distinguish between plastic and living things. The captured plastic will be collected by boats and taken to the mainland for processesing Credit: The Ocean Cleanup Commenting in the survey Eben Schwartz, Marine Debris Program Manager, California Coastal Commission, said: "To make the claim, as the Ocean Cleanup Project is, that they will "clean the oceans" by 2040 or whenever, is disingenuous and misleading, when it will, at best, clean a very small percentage of what's found on the surface." However  The Ocean Cleanup said that the device moved slowly enough through the water that any animals would easily have time to escape. "Every year, millions of tons of plastic enter the ocean," said a spokesman. "The Ocean Cleanup is developing a passive system, that moves with the currents - just like the pla

Trump decided this year to pull out of the agreement, ignoring pleas from the other world powers that had co-sponsored the deal, including Washington's main European allies Britain, France and Germany, as well as Russia and China.......
