A 12-years-old Pune boy claims to have designed a ship, which will help to clean up the oceans and will automatically save marine life. Haaziq Kazi has named his ship ‘Ervis’, in which he has presented his idea to an international audience on platforms like Ted8 and TedEx.
Mr. Kazi said that “I watched some documentaries and realized the impact waste has on marine life. I felt I had to do something. The fish we eat are eating plastic in the ocean, so the cycle of pollution comes to us. Hence, I came up with Ervis.”
The machine that was designed sucks in water from the ocean, which then separates water and marine life. He continued, “Marine life and water are sent back to the ocean, while waste is segregated into five more parts.”
Mr. Kazi said that a sensor fitted in the ship separates the plastic as per its size and the other sensors fitted helps to detect marine life and water to separate them from the waste.
Haaziq Kazi said that the idea to design a ship came to his mind when he was only 9-years-old. He was working with the conservation organizations and forum to create awareness concern its ill-effects of ocean plastic pollution and means to prevent it at the earliest.
