Litter Traps

We developed passive Litter Traps to retrieve floating plastic in ports, rivers and harbors, before it enters seas and oceans. The Litter Traps effectively retrieve marine litter without using any energy. Changing weather conditions like wind and stream direction have no negative impact on the entrapment system. The system is strong and sturdy to resist tough harbor conditions. The system is mainly constructed from recycled plastic, making it a durable and circular product.

 

We’re currently developing more versions of the Litter Traps; traps with a larger capacity for the marine litter, in order to be emptied less frequently, and a modular Litter Trap that can easily be transported globally. With these traps, we can prevent floating plastics from entering the seas and oceans in different rivers worldwide.

Together with our partner Future Alam Borneo, we placed two Litter Traps in Sandakan, Malaysia. The two Litter Traps are prototypes built with local materials, and are located in the areas of Berhala Island and Sim Sim water village. With these two prototypes we are retrieving plastic and collecting data about its quality and characteristics to set up a recycling scheme.
