80% OF PLASTIC WASTE COMES FROM RIVERS

Across the planet this problem has reached an unacceptable level of criticality.

The impact of the human being on the planet has been devastating.
Regardless of the consequences, waste of all kinds continued to be discharged into our seas.

One of the wastes that made its presence felt heavily is plastic!

Plastic waste is collecting in the oceans in “plastic islands”.

The biggest of these is the great pacific garbage patch.

Its dimensions are like those of Spain and Portugal put together.

Since plastic debris reaches the oceans via rivers, it takes 20 years to reach these “islands”.

We must therefore go to act on the problem before these waste come out of the rivers.

The main problem operating in river environments
is the need to find a common and adaptable solution
to very different situations, both in terms of width and depth
of the water course and in terms of navigability.

OUR SOLUTION

Current solutions include boats with draft systems, net systems or barriers that temporarily close the river’s viability.

Each installation requires specific means and specific studies, resulting in high costs; it is also extremely difficult to create permanent installations precisely because of the inconveniences they involve.

The solution we studied is a solution with a very low environmental impact, modular and able to adapt to any watercourse. In the study of this project, physical simulation tests were performed using software, and prototypes were built and tested to verify their functionality.

85% of waste stopped

The River Cleaning System offers an extremely high performance, going to recover practically all the plastic waste with which it comes into contact.

24/7 operativity

An important strength of the River Cleaning System is that it operates autonomously 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, without the need for personnel.

100% scalable

The devices in both size and arrangement can be scaled according to the conformation of the river and the specific needs of the watercourse.
