The plight and struggle of the aquatic life, trying to survive the waste dumped into the oceans moved 12-year-old Haaziq Kazi to come up with an innovative solution to this world hazard. He designed a prototype of a ship, named ERVIS which can suck out plastic from the ocean surface. Haaziq Kazi is a high-school student from Pune, India known for his project to clean ocean from wastes (primarily plastic).
The ship is essentially a large boat powered by hydrogen and renewable natural gas with various compartments and saucers surrounding it”. The saucers, float on the surface gravitate to create a whirlpool to pull the waste towards its centre. These saucers will have a central outlet which will swallow the waste and is connected via a tube to various chambers in the ship. These chambers include an oil chamber which collects waste oil. There are four more chambers which are for large, medium, small & micro waste respectively
