Cleaning your river

The problem of riverine plastic pollution is transboundary by nature: the plastic crosses political borders, yet hardly anyone claims ownership of the problem.

Why a Bubble Barrier?

Our Bubble Barrier has distinct features that make it an innovative system using existing technology. It is distinctive because of different features:

Ship passage

The Bubble Barrier allows ships to pass and therefore does not obstruct daily river activities.

Full reach

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

Fish

The Bubble Barrier allows fish to pass and reduces the sound of ship traffic.

Four ways to protect rivers and oceans from plastic pollution

Our rivers function as plastic-highways to the ocean. This demonstrates the urgent need for measures that stop plastic in its track. The problem of riverine plastic pollution is transboundary by nature: the plastic crosses political borders, yet hardly anyone claims ownership of the problem. We will display four ways how 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

By tackling plastic pollution locally with a Bubble Barrier, you raise awareness for the problem of plastic pollution. Your Bubble Barrier will become an educational site for the (local) community.

3. Monitoring of catch

Research on the amounts, brands, and types of plastic help to address the problem close to the source. In this way, we can help to stimulate new policies concerning plastic pollution.

4. River waste management

Together with local partners, we look for possibilities to connect our Bubble Barrier to a circular economy.

We always look for opportunities to re-use the caught waste. Are you a recycling company or do you happen to have a great recycling idea for our caught 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.
