The hottest scientist invents a robot to clean up

Since 1970, more than 40million barrels of oil have been spilled into the sea, and the degree of pollution is equivalent to four Exxon Valdez tanker spills (a famous crude oil spill accident that once caused serious pollution on the coast of Alaska in the United States) every year

easy to explore July 29. In April this year, when the Deepwater Horizon drilling platform accident led to the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, the plan to clean the sea and press 2. Press the lifting button of the jaw seat under the fixture with some small experimental force has not attracted widespread attention. Fires, dispersants, pantyhose stuffed with human hair - people still have the shadow of disaster and the right and wrong ways to melt and absorb oil in their minds. After the accident, scientists have designed a new robot system that can contain the leaking oil in a few hours, so as to minimize the harm of pollution

airborne machine system for recovering leaked oil "Aeros" is a robot force airborne by aircraft. These robots can isolate oil and use oil-water separators like centrifuges to refine and collect oil. Each robot can purify 3000 gallons (about 11 tons) of water in one minute. Such an automated force can clean up the 11million gallons (about 40000 tons) of oil leakage in a few days, with a total amount equivalent to the oil leakage of Exxon Valdez tanker

aero's developer, global response group, is producing the first batch of robot prototypes, which will be put into the oil spill test next year. The company also negotiated with the Chinese government to establish the first Aeros flight base in order to dispatch robots to protect China's fishery waters from the marine threats brought by offshore drilling. Although this base project will cost 800million US dollars, it is a drop in the bucket compared with the billions of US dollars of losses caused by an oil spill

the oil spill is no small challenge to any thorough cleaning system. Greg McCormack, an oil expert at the University of Texas, said: "in the face of huge waves, the effect of the oil spill barrier is not good." However, he said that new strategies are urgently needed for ocean cleaning, and if the prototype test of Aeros is successful, he will accept this tool. Myron Sullivan, the inventor of aero, decided that he would not fail. "Using it requires careful debugging," Sullivan said, "but this technology has proved feasible. There will be another marine disaster in the future. What we can do is to prepare for a rainy day."

working principle of the robot:

step 1: the aircraft puts down the small truck near the oil spill site to eliminate the cleaning seawater robot and the inflatable oil spill fence

step 2: surround the oil leakage, and the U-shaped oil leakage grid will surround the oil after inflation and expansion. The robot uses GPS to find the floating objects blocked by the oil spill fence and directly send the sewage into the cleaning system of the robot

step 3: cleaning: the robot sucks the oily sea water into a cone. This rotating vertebra will drive the internal liquid to rotate, releasing the denser water, and the remaining oil will flow into the core of the vertebra. The low pressure at one end of the vertebral body will suck away the oil, and the heavier water will flow to the other end of the project signing ceremony between Asahi Huacheng (China) Investment Co., Ltd. and Changshu new materials industrial park. At this time, the water is 99% clean seawater

step 4: collect Black Gold: the collected oil will be recycled later. A robot can clean 3000 gallons of water per minute. In just a few days, it can make the polluted area look new
