Plastic Pollution Prevention and Collection Technology Inventory Search
Vacuums approximately three gallons of sand and debris per minute into a tank that separates particles by buoyancy, allowing for plastic separation and removal.
Solar-powered catamaran autonomously extracts floating plastics from rivers, using barriers and a conveyor belt.
Low-cost transponders allow fishers to locate and recover lost nets.
Uses satellite imagery to detect major garbage patches in oceans; uses numerical models and machine learning to identify optimum routes for cleaning up garbage patches.
Boom made of PVC pipe floaters and galvanized steel catching nets collects surface plastics up to 60 cm deep.
Tubes placed diagonally across the bottom of the waterway create a bubble barrier by pumping air, creating a current that brings debris to the surface and guides it to a catchment system.
Boat that removes floating waste from surface water by using popsicle sticks to push waste from the water bodies into a storage basket. It can be operated remotely with radio control.
Sled that deploys from a ship or land-based center to the beach head by a tow vessel that is loaded with marine debris before being towed to a collection point.
Boat with 4 panga vessels, an open, outboard powered fishing boat, and an accompanying landing craft, which will place booms in river mouth areas and pick out the trash they intercept.
Boat that travels through the water with a collecting ‘mouth’ at the bow and waste is steered into a hold.
Microfiber filter for washing machines.
Laundry filter installed externally on the washing machine effluent pipe that uses a reusable mesh filter to stop microfiber pollution
Magnetic coils coated with nitrogen and manganese that cause a chemical reaction with oxygen molecules that break down microplastics, turning them into salt compounds, carbon dioxide and water.
Device that wraps around the edge of a tire and uses electrostatics and the aerodynamics of a spinning wheel to collect microplastic tire particles as they are emitted.
A submerged buoy that moves with the sea current to filter microplastics and capture it through reuse.
Floating barrier that traps debris brought by the riverbed preventing it from reaching the coast and mangroves, as well as facilitating its collection.
Laundry washing bag that reduces fiber shedding, protects clothes, and filters the microfibers that do break.
External laundry filter that enables the easy disposal of the collected fibres into everyday household waste about every 30 cycles.
Water robot with 2 propellers and a conveyor belt arrangement guiding the trash to a collection box.
Mesh net system uses water flow to capture and remove trash, floatables, and solids from stormwater and wastewater.
