Zero Emissions Ships - ZShips

Description
Zero Fuel, Zero Fill, Zero Emission, 100% Renewable Energy powered commercial vessels.

At Z Ships we believe that carbon neutral and carbon negative growth is possible in global maritime transportation. ZShips is changing the fuel conversation for commercial ships, vessels and fleets. By operating zero emissions commercial vessels with zero ongoing fuel costs, the shipping industry will not only transition from the polluting fossil fuel powered ships of today into the clean energy ships of tomorrow; it will set the industry on a steady path toward emission elimination and positive economic and environmental impact. Our technology is suitable for low speed, displacement hulled vessels of 30 meters and over. The longer the ship the more area we have to work with and the more power we can produce. Superyachts, Ferries, Research Vessels, Fishing, Handysize, Handymax, Panamax, Neo-Panamax are excellent candidates to become Zero Emissions Vessels. ZShips avoids expensive incrementalism by going straight to zero and replacing conventional (fossil) and alternative liquid or gaseous fuels with renewable energy, electricity, and storage to provide 100% fuel cost savings, unlimited range travel with ZERO EMISSIONS, cutting underwater noise and vibrations and reducing harm to marine life and environment. ZShips will be instrumental in helping the maritime transportation industry keep air and waters clean and healthy at ports and high seas.

Plastic Smog Emissions Closed Loop System (PSECLS)

Description
PSECLS recovers wastewater for re-utilization and prevents microplastics from contaminating the aquatic food chain

The Plastic Smog Emissions Closed Loop System -PSECLS- provides an innovative method to monetize the value that is locked in wastewater discharges containing microplastic particles. PSECLS recovers wastewater and turns it into clean water for re-utilization in domestic, industrial, textile marine, and irrigation applications, and. at the same time, recovers microplastic particles (fibres and beads) to convert them into high-value products. Customer Problem: The customers are the plastics, textile and apparel industries, industrial textile washing operations, laundry appliance manufacturers, ships and municipalities as producers and generators of a major source of recently termed "plastic smog," or microplastic pollution detected on ocean shorelines worldwide. The customer's problems are Microbeads and microfibers - such as bits of polyester and acrylic smaller than the head of a pin- are discharged in the wastewater effluent. • Waslewater treatment plants are not designed to capture microfibers. • Marine life ingests these microplastics and perish. • Fish that ingest these microplastics may end up on our plates. (Researchers from the University of Ghent in Belgium believe that microplastics accumulate in the body over time and could be a long-term health risk. Seafood eaters ingest up to 11.000 tiny pieces of plastic every year with dozens o( particles becoming embedded in tissues).

Regenerative Oceanic Biomimetic Robotics-ROBiotics-

Description
ROBiotics offers to extract plastic deposits from the ocean with bio-intelligent, biomimetic robots or ROBiots.

ROBiotics ROBOTS or ROBiots technologies will feature, inter alia: • Automated microplastic sensors. • Light emitting devices in various configurations to reduce catching fish and creating attractive escape paths for marine animals in the regenerative plastic recovery path of the ROBiots. • Capability to gather and transmit data to help ensure marine well-being. • Capability of operating independently and in groups. The extraction exponentially increases depending on the number of ROBiots in a swarm (school). • Communication with remote operators and with each other. • Different sizes. Depending on their size, each individual ROBiot will be able to collect a minimum of between four tons and 16 tons and a maximum between 175 and 700 tons in 24 hours. ROBiotics will use existing and emerging technology in Biological Artificial Intelligence BAI. ROBiotics submersible BBAI Biomimetic, Biological-Artificially Intelligent Robots or ROBiots are untethered, can also be controlled remotely and are powered with renewable energy. ROBiots “eat” plastic deposits of macro, meso and microplastics floating on the surface and at different depths in the water column at high seas with the advantage of being able to blend with marine life; shelter themselves from inclement weather, use wave, wind, solar and energy temperature differences in the ocean to power themselves; locate, track, pursue and actively collect as well as passively extract valuable plastic deposits from the global ocean. Depending on their size, each ROBiot in a swarm (school) will be able to collect a minimum of between four tons and 16 tons and a maximum between 175 and 700 tons in 24 hours. ROBiots will bring whatever material they collected including variable synthetic polymers back to the equivalent of a Floating Processing Storage Offloading vessel (FPSO); in our proposal, to a Floating, Eco-Extraction, Upcycling, Offloading vessel (FEUO) where these plastics are audited, studied, sorted, some baled for shipping and some transformed in-situ into high-value products and/or raw materials. For faster return on investment and higher profits, ROBiotics integrates the bio-robotic regenerative extraction of marine plastic and FEUO processing, with zero emission, zero fuel vessels for resource delivery from sea-to-port.
