A fleet of "Roboats" could collect garbage or make their way into floating structures in Amsterdam's many canals – ScienceDaily

The city of Amsterdam envisions a future in which fleets of autonomous boats cross their many canals to transport goods and people, collect garbage or gather in floating stages and bridges. To advance this vision, MIT researchers have given their fleet of robotic boats, developed as part of an ongoing project, new capabilities that allow them to aim at each …

Huge floating islands that convert atmospheric CO2 into fuel could prevent climate change, scientists say

Millions of floating islands that convert atmospheric carbon dioxide into fuel could help prevent the burning of fossil fuels in our climate. These proposed islands would be grouped together to create large-scale facilities that, if built enough, could ultimately offset global total fossil fuel emissions. A research team from Norway and Switzerland has submitted a proposal for solar methanol Islands' …

A massive floating device created to cleanse the Pacific Ocean collapses

The Ocean Cleanup System 001, a U-shaped swimming barrier created by The Ocean Cleanup, arrived at the Great Pacific Garbage Patch in October. Marine wastes are formed by rotating ocean currents called "gyres", which pull the remains of the sea (garbage, fishing gear and plastic) to one location in one location, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. There …
