How To Rid The Sea Of An Ocean Of Plastic
It is estimated that between seven and ten
million tons of floating plastic garbage are
polluting and choking an area the size of Texas
in the central Pacific Ocean. This is one of
several such areas around the world, known as
gyres, where ocean currents naturally concentrate
the trash. The enormity of the plastic is a
seemingly insurmountable problem because it cannot
be removed and taken to land for disposal. It
cannot be incinerated due to the toxicity of the
smoke. It cannot be ignored because the plastic is
being eaten by fish, birds and mammals. Others
become trapped and killed by it. The plastic will
destroy the food chain. There are six times as
much floating plastic as there are plankton and
the plankton-eaters are consuming more and more
plastic. A Styrofoam cup breaks down into little
white pellets that have the appearance of fish
eggs, which are swallowed by other hungry
The research, which is ongoing and was begun by Mr.
Charles Moore in 1997, has revealed a deadly
nightmare for organic life. Anti-littering
campaigns may help in the future but millions of
tons of plastic items continue to be manufactured
and discarded every year. Plastic does not
biodegrade. All plastic that has ever been made, that
which has not been toxically incinerated, still exists
and will always exist unless it is converted back to
that whence it came.  The floating plastic must somehow
be cleaned up and there appears to be only one practical
means to do so.
All plastic is made from petroleum products and is made
up of hydrocarbon.
There is a proven process in which any hydrocarbon-based
material can be converted back to high-quality light
oil by a brief application of heat and pressure. This
technology is known as Thermal Conversion Process and
has been perfected by a New York company, Changing
World Technologies, Inc. (CWT).
The company has spent the past few years working with
the conversion of slaughterhouse waste products into
oil and is currently adding the conversion of plastic
waste. We have approached CWT with our basic proposal
and the company has indicated an interest in
participating with us.
Changing World Technologies, Inc. captured our
imagination in 2003 with an article by Discovery
Magazine describing their heroic method of converting
waste back into oil, which they have been doing since
1997.  We propose, in our pilot project, to put a CWT
conversion process on a large ship, preferably with
front-opening doors. The ship would, with a wide,
V-shaped catcher, plow through the infested water,
taking in the plastic waste onto conveyor belts that
would feed the waste into the converters for heating
and pressurizing. The result is light, high-quality
fuel oil, some of which would be used by the ship, the
bulk of which would be transferred to tanker ships for
transport to the mainland. This fuel oil could be
further refined and either sold at market price or
distributed unrefined to help families in need of home
heating oil, in addition to many other worthy programs.
If the pilot project is successful, it would doubtless
become a popular enterprise, worthy of increasing
international private investment which would enjoy tax
incentives for the greenest project imaginable to us.
Meaningful numbers of specially-built conversion ships
would be produced and employed in the several
waterworld wastelands and eventually in all polluted
areas.  The nature of plastic waste indicates that
cleaning the oceans and other water ways will be a
permanent activity for the health of the planet and the
survival of not only the sea life but possibly of
humanity. We see this as the only practical, possible
solution to what researchers have come to see as a
catastrophe impossible to prevent or fix. But, quite
possibly, the conversion of floating plastic waste will
provide a much needed commodity until such time that
plastics are made from biodegradable materials such as
starch.  A popular idea now is sustainability. Our
proposal is based on this idea, since the ships would
sustain their own work by producing fuel oil, obviating
the costs of refueling so far from land.  We foresee a
hundred or more conversion ships working the waste
areas of the world's oceans, around the clock, year
after year. Over time, the waste areas would be
cleansed. Improving technology would allow even small
particles of plastic to be strained out of the water,
but initially the grossest areas would be attacked and
reduced to fuel oil.  The beaches of many islands are
inundated with plastic refuse. We would use smaller
boats to gather and trap this trash from shallow areas
and remove it to conversion ships in deeper water for
processing. This, truly, is the only way to handle
plastic pollution in water, and on land as well, for
that matter. It is said that a plastic bag or
Styrofoam cup dropped on the ground to blow in the wind
will generally wind up in the ocean, so the Thermal
Conversion Process of CWT, Inc. is the only moral and
practical way to deal with any plastic waste, on land
or the water. It should not be buried and it must not
be burned.  Changing World Technologies, Inc. expects
their plastic waste Thermal Conversion Process to be
online this year (2010). We would like to install a
prototype version on an LST-type ship as soon as the
converter is ready and make way for the Great Garbage
Area of the Central Pacific to begin the vital cleanup

become involved with us, please ask for more
