Suzuki to manufacture micro-plastic collecting devices for motors!
Suzuki have just invented the world’s first micro-plastic collecting device for outboard motors and they plan on manufacturing it!

In an attempt to reduce the amount of micro-plastic in the ocean, Suzuki have now developed the world’s first micro-plastic collecting device for outboard motors.
During the design process, Suzuki had one rule: performance could not be compromised so, unsurprisingly, the finished product does not affect the performance of the motor that it is attached to.
How does it work?
I like cars, not plastic tubes which is why I’m just going to let you look at this diagram:
What does it do?
Due to the impacts that micro-plastics have on all things ocean-y, the device aims to remove as much micro-plastic from the ocean as possible.
The particles are sucked from the ocean and are stored within the device.
I think that it’s absolutely brilliant to see a company like Suzuki produce something like this with the intention to be kind to our planet and I truly do believe that it is a good piece of kit that will make a massive difference.
This device will be optional from 2021 but Suzuki aim to make it a standard feature in future.
