The rest of the island would be available to grow food, and seaweed would be grown right offshore. Seaweed could be used for food, biofuel, fertilizer, medicine, and CO2 absorption. Human waste and other organic matter would be composted and used as fertilizer for crops. Renewable energy would be harvested from solar, wave and wind power.
Recycled Island is still completely in conceptual stages, and the designers are currently seeking assistance and other knowledgeable experts in the fields of chemistry, oceanographers and engineers. The concept is a bit out there, but some day it may have its place. What do you think, should we turn the world’s floating plastic into self-sufficient islands?
