Due to the raise of the sea level rise in the Gulf of Mexico, a lot of landmass will be lost in the next 50 years.
Especially around New Orleans and it surrounding natural reserves the damage to the wildlife and quality of the water will be severe.
Because of these occurrences, the shortage of landmass and the higher demand of engery and fuel,
our project targets these problems and offers an idea for the upcoming future.
We propose a drone like structure that collects the toxic algaes, which start growing to the higher pollution in the water and converts it into bio-fuel and bio-polymers.
