Will nanotechnology combined with animal and plant functions one day eliminate microplastics in the ocean? We researched the use of nanotechnology to one day eliminate plastics and microplastics in the ocean. Using what we learned from nature, or biomimicry, we designed FRANPE Glub Glub, a kayak sized, fish-like silicone robot that we hope will provide a solution.

We researched the use of nanotechnology combined with animal and plant functions to one day eliminate plastics and microplastics in the ocean. Using what we learned from nature, or biomimicry, we designed FRANPE Glub Glub, a kayak sized, fish-like silicone robot that we hope will provide a solution. It stands for Floating Robot Activated by Nanotechnology and Plastic Eradicator. It is now just a sketch, backed by recent technology, but it may soon come to an ocean near you!
