This is an animation of the finished robot. It is 26 feet long by 14 feet wide. Between the wind turbine, the radial blades on the top, and its PV panel, it generates 12 kilowatts. This is enough to power the thermal depolymerization, biomass cultivation and biomass extraction.
The robot cultivates its own biomass internally by using solar and wind power to maintain ideal growth conditions 24 hours per day, 365 days per year. No biomass is removed from the food chain that maintains the marine eco-system.
The biomass is collected and processed mechanically, NO TRANSESTERIFICATION, into a bio-diesel. The waste products are used as fertilizer in the biomass growth tanks. Nothing is wasted or discharged into the sea.
