Greek students create smartphone application to fight sea pollution


Students from the General and Technical High School of the American Farm School in Thessaloniki have developed a real-time marine pollution detection application for smartphones.

The “ocLean AFS” (from the words “ocean clean”) app is innovative software which aims to help rid the sea bottom of plastic bags and bottles, along with glass and aluminum items. It enables the user to not only detect the debris but also to immediately communicate the problem to the relevant authorities in only a few steps.

The band-new app is the work of a group of 18 students working under the supervision of Mathematics Professor Melina Brozou, who manages the project.
