Why a Bubble Barrier?

Our Bubble Barrier is an innovative system based on existing technology, but a number of features set it apart:

Ship passage

The Bubble Barrier allows ships to navigate through it and therefore does not obstruct daily river activities.

Extensive reach

The Bubble Barrier covers the full width and depth of the river.

Fish

The Bubble Barrier allows fish to swim through it and reduces the sound of ship traffic, which can disturb fish’s communication ability.

Four ways to protect rivers and oceans from plastic pollution

Our rivers function as highways transporting plastic to the ocean. There is an urgent need for measures to stop plastic in its tracks. The problem of riverine plastic pollution is universal: the plastic crosses national and political borders, yet few are stepping up to own the problem. We reveal four ways that you can make an impact:

1. Catch river plastics

With a Bubble Barrier you will be able to tackle the plastic problem locally. By catching plastics in your local river you will be at the forefront of fighting plastic pollution. You will be catching plastics that can be seen on the water surface, but also plastics that below the surface. This is done over the full width and depth of the river.

2. Raise awareness

Tackling plastic pollution locally via a Bubble Barrier helps raise awareness of the problem. Your Bubble Barrier will become an education site for the (local) community.

3. Monitoring of catch

Research on the amounts, brands, and types of plastic helps to address the problem close to the source. Understanding the cause of the problem can stimulate new policies concerning plastic pollution.

Read more about our research collaboration with The Plastic Soup Foundation.

4. River waste management

Together with our local partners, we looking for ways to return the trapped plastic to market and connect our Bubble Barrier to a circular economy.

We constantly look for opportunities to re-use the trapped waste. Are you a recycling company or do you have a great recycling idea for trapped waste? Reach out to us!

How we implement a Bubble Barrier

Before we implement a Bubble Barrier, we carefully conduct research on the preferred location with you to ensure high quality and optimal performance. Typically, we go through the following phases with our clients:

PROJECT PHASES:

1. Preliminary research

In this phase we assess the suitability of a specific location, the best strategic partners, permit requirements and the indicate the total costs.

2. Realisation

In this phase we will make a final design based on our research and the permit requirements and we will install the Bubble Barrier.

3. Operation

In this phase the Bubble Barrier is fully operational ready to make impact. This includes organizing a launch and executing a tailored communication plan fitted to the local community.

4. Maintenance

The scheduled maintenance of the system can either be done by us or a certified third party.

Where to implement a Bubble Barrier?

The right fit

Every river is unique. Therefore, we carefully assess the options for installing a Bubble Barrier in each instance together with our clients. Our Bubble Barrier technology can make an impact and capture plastic in a broad range of river types. Check out some of our broadly defined types below.
