(Worldkings.org) ERVIS is an intelligent ship which has been designed by Haaziq Kazi to capture waste and clean the oceans. The ship is a large boat with various compartments and saucers surrounding the ships.

Haaziq Kazi (Born April 8, 2006) is a 17-year-old Indian inventor and speaker. Haaziq is the person who designed the prototype of a ship to clean plastic waste in the ocean. He was widely covered by media for being a young innovator and titled a 'child prodigy' by many.



Kazi's concern about ocean began in Class IV when he watched a few documentaries regarding the plastic waste crisis and how it was impacting the planet's marine ecosystem and oceans. At 12, he designed a prototype of a ship that would help clean the ocean and named it ERVIS.



ERVIS is a large vessel in the ocean with multiple saucers attached to it. As Haaziq describes, "the ship is essentially a large boat powered by hydrogen and renewable natural gas with various compartments and saucers surrounding it". The saucers, float on the surface gravitate to create a whirlpool to pull the waste towards its center. These saucers will have a central outlet which will swallow the waste and is connected via a tube to various chambers in the ship. These chambers include an oil chamber which collects waste oil. There are four more chambers which are for large, medium, small & micro waste respectively.



Since designing the ERVIS prototype, while he was in school in Pune, Kazi has gone on to become a TED-Ed and TedX speaker and also started the ERVIS Foundation. The foundation helps educate and spread awareness about the threats the marine ecosystem faces and also provides youngsters with a platform to express their environmental ideas as well as concerns. It hosts numerous workshops, including short-term education initiatives in schools to help make children aware of the threats the marine ecosystem faces.
