Cleaning rivers from plastic pollution with bubbles

Our bubble barrier catches plastic over the fu­ll width and depth of rivers and prevents plastic from ending up in the ocean. The system does not interfere with regular river activities and is operational 24/7.

OUR TECHNOLOGY

A smart solution to plastic pollution

The bubble curtain is created by a perforated tube on the bottom of the waterway where air is pumped through. This generates a screen of bubbles that blocks plastics and directs suspended plastics to the surface. The diagonal placement of the bubble curtain in the waterway guides plastic waste to the side and into the catchment system.

Take action

Help us clean your river

In order to tackle plastic pollution effectively, we need your help. Since the problem is transboundary by nature it makes it hard to assign ownership.

That’s why we need people to take action today. Find out how we can create an impact at your location.

Our mission

The Great Bubble Barrier aims to stop plastic pollution in rivers and canals before it reaches our oceans. We aim to achieve this through four pillars:

  • Use our Bubble Barrier to remove plastic from waterways.
  • Monitor the amount of plastic in waterways to support the development of policy and additional measures.
  • Ensure sustainable processing of our catch with project partners.
  • Increase awareness to prevent plastic pollution.
