Talking about his invention, Kazi said, “I watched some documentaries and realised the impact waste has on marine life. I felt I had to do something. The fish we eat are eating plastic in the ocean, so the cycle of pollution comes to us. Hence, I came up with Ervis.”

He also talked about his machine that it sucks in the water from the ocean which is then segregated between the waste and marine life. The waste is then segregated whereas the marine life and water are sent back to the ocean.

He also added that a sensor is fitted in the ship which is also segregated the plastic according to its size. The reports further suggest that there are other sensors which detect marine life and water and separate them from the waste.

Talking about how the idea of building such a ship came in his mind, he said that he was 9 years old. Presently, he is working with different conservation organizations and forums to spread awareness about the pollution in oceans and the ways to prevent it.
