Wasser 3.0 PE-X

The project developed a filter-free process solution for removal of microplastics and micropollutants from water. With the use of hybrid silica gels, a chemical reaction separates pharmaceutical molecules from water. Microplastics are treated with a gel that promotes the formation of clumps, that grow into lumps that float on the surface of the treatment basin, allowing for easy separation.

Aquatic-skimmers

The Aquatic-skimmers are retrieval vessels for floating trash and debris for use in all bodies of water, including ports, harbors and marinas. They collect trash in their storage conveyors, transport the cargo to an off-loading point and discharge it into a suitable container.

Enviro Buggy

Enviro Buggy is a four-wheeled, self-propelled stainless steel and aluminum vacuum cleaner that sucks up microplastics on beaches. It has two baskets inside the vacuum box, one for the bigger pieces and one to catch the nurdles in the bottom basket. There is also a built-in shaker to filter the sand collected.

Manta

The Manta is a plastic-eating catamaran that collects trash on an industrial scale, up to 3 tons of ocean garbage per hour. It has nets along the stern to collect plastic and garbage, along with sustainable energy sources like solar panels and wind turbines to power the onboard collection and recycling center.

Robots again microplastic

Researchers in Czech Republic are developing microscopic robots made of a material that is propelled forward when exposed to sunlight. When material comes into contact with microplastic, it rapidly speeds up the degradation that happens naturally in the sun. The technology is still in development, and it has to be made sure that the robots can also break down correctly themselves.

Aqua Drone

The Clean Sea Solution, in partnership with Oslo, has come up with a system to combat plastic pollution in the sea. The Aqua Drone is an autonomous drone, which “sweeps” the water and collects waste and then takes it to a set point on the coast.

Clear Rivers

Clear Rivers is an initiative that uses Litter Traps to collect plastic waste from rivers and port areas and use it to produce platforms that can be assembled to form a floating park (Recycled Islands).

Cleawat

Cleawat is a water cleaning vessel that cleans up garbage and microplastics from waterways, by the utilization of the water flow. By regulating the flow, the booms in front of the vessel collect waste that ends up on the vessel’s conveyor and is further sorted into trash. The device can collect up to half a millimeter-sized particles.
