“Innovative Solutions to Marine Debris”: Collaboration for a Sustainable World
According to poor waste management that released the large amount of plastic waste into the ocean, marine debris becomes a serious issue. SCG brought its expertise in innovation and collaborate with the Department of Marine and Coastal Resources (DMCR) to build upon DMCR’s existing litter trap and improve its waste storage performance in actual working environments, resulting in a new invention known as SCG-DMCR Litter Trap. From the successful litter trap came SCG Smart Litter Trap 4.0, which incorporates digital technology, including AI, IoT, and machine learning, to improve the efficiency and address the limitations faced by the previous model. Although public-private collaboration can alleviate the marine debris problem, the key to a sustainable solution still lies in public cooperation in not letting litter end up in the sea in the first place.
