Sustaining Under Water Life Using Robotics

Rupesh Prasad



From last few decade huge packaging plastic is been thrown away in city, beaches, sea transport and the statistics it has found that around 40% of plastic waste goes through landfills, 14% is recycled but 32% ends as litter in the marine environment. When the survey of Earth Oceans was done it found that water contains millions of tons of plastic mostly in the form of micro plastics. In research it is found that it takes years for the plastic to break down into pieces which drift into the marine under wind and surface currents which cause harmful for the aquatic animal. This research paper provides a view towards current waste of plastic material, robot technology and other initiatives underway to address the issue.
