According to Micro PC, there are nearly 800,000 tons of microbeads floating in the ocean.

Released Filtration Equipment for Collecting Microplastics

  (TAIWAN, 1/19/2021)

Microplastics pollution already becomes the worldwide issue, Taiwan's youth startup cooperate with "Taiwanese government" try to deal with this problem, according to Industry Accelerator & Incubation Center of Chung Yuan Christian University.

According to the research, microplastics may enter aquatic environments and may be ingested by aquatic organisms, including species of commercial fisheries such as crabs, mussels and so on. Not only the scientists but also the enterprises attempt to know more this emerging contaminant-plastic microbeads.

The device can be used in combination with boats and ASVs, to navigate seaports, rivers, and reservoirs.

Micro PC invented consumable-free filter equipment to remove micro plastics from the surface of water with non-consumable, low energy and low cost and the filter could three liters of sampling water once. This filter can be used in combination with boats and USV (Unmanned Surface Vehicle) not only can get the water quality monitoring such as DO, PH, SS, temperature but also could navigate at seaports, rivers, and reservoirs.

According to the research, microplastics may enter aquatic environments through food chain will be ingested by aquatic organisms.

This renewable Taiwan Technology makes getting water sampling & analysis automatically and easier than before. This package already used by government, university, inspection institutions and applied in Taiwanese bank, river, reservoirs. During the long term monitoring at the west of Taiwan: The results shows 126 to 1683 particles per liter at the Yong-an Fish Harbor and 72 to 261 particles per liter at the She-Zi river, and the most of microplastics are PE and PP.

Micro PC was founded by two college students at Chung Yuan Christian University who developed a technology that cleans harmful substances from water, such as plastic microbeads in the ocean and algae in fish ponds.

Micro PC filtration equipment could directly collect the microplastic below 20 micrometers without any consumables. This filter could also be used in waste water filtration process in different industry. For example: aquaculture farming, food processing plants. The vision of Micro PC is to help microplastic remove from sea food and to release non-plastic sea food in the future.

Micro PC provides marine garbage recycling service to return a clean habitat to marine life.
