Sagin Balakumar

BA (Hons) Automotive and Transport – Innovation on water

MY NAME IS SAGIN BALAKUMAR, I'M A GRADUATE OF COVENTRY UNIVERSITY. I'M GOING TO PRESENT THE PLECO PROJECT. IN THIS PROJECT, I DESIGNED A VESSEL FOR HANDLING PLASTIC WASTE. MY GOAL IS TO MAKE RIVER THAMES A SAFER AND CLEANER ENVIRONMENT.


GROWING UP IN LONDON AND EXPERIENCING WASTE BUILD-UP ALLOWED ME TO ACKNOWLEDGE THAT A CHANGE WAS REQUIRED. PLECO IS A GOOD THING FOR THE WORLD BECAUSE IT WILL REDUCE PLASTIC WASTE, SAVING NOT ONLY MARINE LIFE BUT ALSO HUMANS.


PLASTIC WILL ALWAYS BE A PROBLEM; THE CHANGE IS REQUIRED BECAUSE THE AMOUNT OF PLASTIC WASTE IS INCREASING AT A TERRIBLE RATE. I'M WORKING ON A PLASTIC EXTRACTION METHOD THAT WILL EFFECTIVELY RECYCLE THE WASTE.


IN THE NEAR FUTURE, THERE WILL BE NO MORE MARINE LIFE IN THE THAMES. THE PLECO PROJECT WILL BEGIN AT RIVER THAMES AND WILL OVER TIME EXTEND TO OTHER RIVERS.

IN THE NEAR FUTURE, THERE WILL BE NO MORE MARINE LIFE IN THE THAMES.
