Plastic Pollution Prevention and Collection Technology Inventory Search
Self-driving ship that run on solar power energy that can be deployed in certain areas of the ocean to automatically clean waste.
Floating station to collect plastic debris from the water surface and move it towards the Collector, and transform it into recyclable material.
Robot programmed with artificial intelligence to map and collect litter data. MAPP robots communicate with each other to collaboratively hunt for litter in outdoor areas.
Filters stormwater waste (like litter, sand, and oil) from entering the water system.
A net towed behind a boat that collects microplastics at the water’s surface.
A system that is retrofitted to existing washing machines that connects between the outflow pipe and the drain to trap the fibres in a container that is emptied every 20 washes.
A modular, affordable floating wetland unit that collects and removes microplastic debris from rivers via plant root biofilters.
Catamaran fitted with a conveyor belt collects debris from seas, straits and bays.
Vehicle with a hydraulic arm with a mealworm tank to biodegrade polystyrene that uses infrared detection from a drone to detect and pick up plastics.
A cargo ship ballast system with filters made out of organic material. When docked, the cargo ships take on polluted water and filter microplastics from the ballast water. Upon docking at its destination, the cargo ship releases the filtered ballast water and the microplastic particles would be stored in a shipping container and disposed of elsewhere.
Wheel that corrals waste carried by the river’s current to a capture point, where it will be lifted from the water by a transverse conveyor belt powered by electricity from a water wheel.
Rover that picks up small litter like cigarette butts, single-use cutlery or plastic bottle caps from beaches.
Washing machine filter to catch microplastics.
GPS beacons attach to trash to follow where trash gathers and where it lands. Data collected is transmitted hourly to satellites.
Vehicle that releases an enzyme into the ocean that breaks down PET.
Microplastics collecting system designed for outboard motors. While the motor runs, it pulls harmful plastic fragments from the water.
River boat that catches suspended plastics just below the water’s surface and channels it to a conveyor which removes the plastic.
River boom that collects and removes visible litter at river mouth locations before it enters the open sea.
A fence system used to divert waste to conveyor belts.
Two floating booms with mesh that guide floating waste to a trap connected to the riverbank by a bamboo platform.
