Microplastic Collecting Device for Outboards
In 2020, Suzuki Marine took a meaningful step in its conservation journey when it began converting its plastic packaging to eco-friendly materials. That same year, Suzuki also took a major leap, becoming the first outboard manufacturer to design a device for its engines that filters microplastics from the ocean.
“It originally started off as a collection bag, and then it went to a filter,” says Suzuki Marine executive vice president Gus Blakely. “We wanted to have a product that would operate flawlessly so the customer doesn’t have to worry.”
Suzuki’s microplastic-collecting device fits into one side of a Y pipe. Engine cooling water runs through the filter until it fills with plastic. Water then diverts to the open pipe. The filter costs nothing to the consumer and can be emptied easily.

To make the claim “The Ultimate Outboard Motor,” you’d better do more than just build great engines. For the past 10 years, Suzuki has been committed to cleaning up the marine environment.
