THE OCEANS ARE OUR LUNGS: 50-85% OXYGEN
Our oceans are drowning in plastic waste
About 70 percent of the Earth’s surface is covered by oceans. Humanity has turned these areas, in recent years, into a gypsy dump and today there are hundreds of thousands of different types of waste and especially plastic waste floating in every square kilometer of the sea. Seabirds agonize over having swallowed sharp pieces from handys, computers or radiators. Marine animals confuse floating plastics with jellyfish and small particles confuse them with plankton. as a consequence the extinction of many marine beings is present.
It is frequently observed that the beaches and islands are covered with garbage. Garbage, which is washed away by the tide from one continent to another. Ocean currents turn the millions of tons of plastic garbage into floating mountains. Thousands of fish, birds and marine mammals circle these mountains or islands of floating garbage in order to collect their food for the day, not knowing that one day it will slowly kill them. microplastics and the harmful substances that plastics contain, enter not only the food chain of marine beings, but also the human food chain through fish, shellfish, squid, crabs and other marine species.
TO FULFILL OUR MISSION WE NEED YOUR HELP
For this project, the installation of recycling machines for all types of garbage is planned, on beaches or cities near the sea, in order to collect the garbage that is swimming in the sea, as well as to prevent the drains from continuing to flow into the sea.
The machinery to be installed is modern and German technology, which transforms plastics and any waste into electrical and thermal energy with zero CO2 emissions.

The largest Lung on the Planet is in the Oceans
Phytoplankton produce between 50 and 85% of the oxygen that is released into the atmosphere each year.
The unicellular organisms of phytoplankton, which float by the thousands in the so-called euphotic zone of the ocean, reach almost the first 200 meters of depth.
There are two main groups of organisms in the seas: unicellular algae and photosynthetic cyanobacteria. These are form the forests and seagrass beds
and produce oxygen for the planet.
Marine microorganisms are autotrophic and produce organic matter from inorganic substances. Thanks to their photosynthetic work, these microscopic creatures produce between 50 and 85% of the oxygen that is released into the atmosphere each year.
Phytoplankton generate at least half of the oxygen we breathe – about 27 billion tons a year – and in turn absorb about 10 gigatons of carbon from the atmosphere annually. Therefore, the action of these microorganisms on our planet fulfills a double function, giving on the one hand the essential oxygen to the atmosphere, and removing CO2 from it in turn, transforming this carbon into carbohydrates that, sooner or later, the other organisms alive may include in their biological structures.
