It’s finally time to reveal our first sole project; a “River Cleaner”. Our “River Cleaner” uses the natural currents in the river to lead plastics and other debris into a large net that can swiftly be lifted and emptied on shore for sorting, recycling and further proper treatment. Drawings, test results, adjustments and impovements will be open source, accessible for anyone to copy free of charge. No copyrights! Meaning that the “River Cleaner” can be adopted free of charge by NGO’s, local and central Goverments, community groups, sports associations, religious groups, companies and more. Polluted rivers carry loads of garbage to the ocean every minute, we need to stop that! The River Cleaner can be produced anywhere in the world. Local production means local ownership and better sustainability. And no shipping across borders. Rivers.Global is now communicating with a Norwegian company in Vietnam for a co-operation in developing and producing a pilot for testing in real rivers with real pollution. See “Projects” for further details.
