Norwegian research and development of scientific research concept ship for degrading plastic waste

det Norske Veritas (hereinafter referred to as DNV) and the World Wide Fund for nature (WWF) announced to jointly develop scientific research concept ship to solve the thorny problem of increasing plastic waste in global waters. The movement path and degradation process of plastics in the sea are still largely unknown in the United States, so it is urgent to fill the knowledge gap in the field of efficient cleaning of plastic waste

det Norske Veritas (China) Co., Ltd. disclosed the news in Shanghai on the 4th. According to DNV estimates, by 2020, the global marine plastic waste is expected to reach 230 million tons, most of which comes from human activities on land and at sea. Plastic is generally easy to gather in the relatively static waters of the five oceans. If a large number of patients cannot be treated, it takes about 80 years to clean the surface of the five major currents with 1000 ships

DNV and WWF jointly developed the conceptual design of a new scientific research ship, called spindrift. The 85 meter long research vessel can support 38 researchers to work at sea for 90 days, providing them with a flexible research platform to better understand the problem and test the plastic collection solution. The new scientific research ship is equipped with a system to effectively monitor the ocean from the air and water bodies under the "new normal" of China's economy. The design aims to flexibly deal with different collection technologies

it is said that the new scientific research vessel will help solve the following problems: what is the depth of underwater cleaning operations? How much plastic should be cleaned up? How can we best compare the toughness of different materials to greatly reduce the probability of catching marine organisms by mistake

dnv relevant person in charge believes that plastic degradation in the ocean will take years. By launching the action plan and developing a design concept suitable for professional scientific research ships, we hope to use practical methods to reduce plastic accumulation, and seek support for the action plan on a global scale
