RE: Massive garbage patch discovered in Atlantic Ocean; 1,000 miles long
NEW ENERGY FIND? Has anyone looked at recycling these patches? The organics and the plastics are hydrocarbons, an energy source, and raw material for us. Maybe with grants and tax breakes to get the ball rolling this could break even and eventually be a valuable deposit. Heck, we might have to go to court to claim it as ours! What would be the cost of making it into fuel and raw stock? It might qualify as a green alternitive energy. If this could work it would pay it's own way for cleaning up a small part of our mess.
