Spinola Bay Is Getting Its Very Own Seabin Thanks To This Maltese Company

Plastic is the most prevalent type of marine debris found in our seas. This comes in all shapes and sizes. Plastic debris less than five millimetres in length (or about the size of a sesame seed) is called “microplastics.”

Microplastics are impossible to get rid of, because these do not decompose.

Obviously, the best way to decrease the number of microplastics in our seas is to stop using plastic in the first place. Unfortunately it will probably take a while to totally eradicate plastic from the world’s current lifestyle.

So, in the short-term, other steps have to be taken to keep our seas as clean as possible.

Local company Prohealth is doing just this by purchasing and installing a Seabin in Spinola Bay

A Seabin basically does what it says on the tin; it collects trash and rubbish that is floating in the sea.

Water is drawn in from the surface and passes through a catch bag inside the Seabin. A submersible water pump capable of displacing 25,000 lph (litres per hour), then pumps water back into the sea, leaving litter and debris trapped in the catch bag.

As part of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) policy, Prohealth is working to ensure a better environment for future generations. The Seabin is one such initiative.

Local NGO ŻIBEL helped Prohealth set up this local Seabin Project. It is the one of the first local companies to purchase a Seabin, helping to kick-start the island’s journey towards cleaner seas.

The Seabin will be installed in Spinola Bay sometime in June.

Prohealth is also looking into other Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives such as those concerning children and youth well-being, supporting local NGOs Beating Hearts, Karl Vella Foundation, Beautiful Minds amongst others.
