Clean-up

FabLab Artilect - Toulouse

In Toulouse, plastic waste found in the Garonne River empties out into the ocean. To tackle the problem, the Artilect team has come up with a floating waste collection system. Toulouse Clean Up is a mechanical barrier activated by a waterwheel and assisted by two floaters. The aim is to stop as much plastic waste as possible from entering the ocean and reduce the pollution of the Garonne River.

The prototype should be operational by June, once the location has been approved by the city of Toulouse. An assessment is planned for September to determine the development prospects of Toulouse Clean Up.
