Green City Organisation
// Description of activity
Our startup designs solutions for monitoring and protecting the sea. Our patented solution captures waste before it reaches the sea, and targets rainwater drain outlets, especially those in ports and marinas before waste spills into the sea. Monitored in real time, our device also collects data on water quality.
// Solution or Product description
Captures waste, from cigarette butt-size and up, at rain water drain outlets, on land or underwater, using a ring that enables a net to be attached to the outlet. Device is monitored in real time with an alert warning if the net gets too full. Smart device which collects data: transforms a drain outlet into a water quality measuring station.
// Unique selling proposition
Designed for underwater drain outlets (mostly in coastal towns, ports and marinas) and monitored in real time. Collects data on the port’s water quality.
Ensures drain network is not overloaded (risk of flooding upstream if net is too full) by a patented mechanical contact breaker. Monitored in real time. Suitable for underwater drain outlets.
