With the patented solution designed by SEADS the Engineering modelling supports a technology that is at the same time effective and simple. Making a worldwide-scale application both feasible and desirable.
Every minute a truck of plastic is dumped into the Sea
By 2050 there will be more plastic than fish in the Oceans.The vast majority of this plastic comes from only 10 Rivers.
The Blue Barriers are designed to:
before it gets to the ocean
and transform it in a resource
Designed to resist to any river condition
for local communities
to avoid waste entering in the rivers in the first place
A recent Ellen MacArthur Foundation report states that:
0 millionsmetric tons of plastic currently enter the ocean every year
+0 %this quantity is expected to double by 2030
+0 %and quadruple by 2050, by then there will be more plastic than fish in the sea
An innovative technology that, once scaled up to large rivers, could give a significant contribution to the fight against the devastating effect of Ocean plastic contamination.

There is no doubt that this technology, paired with an effective strategy to recycle the collected material, would have a tremendous impact.
