Did you know? Bamboo absorbs carbon dioxide and releases over 30% more oxygen into the atmosphere compared to an equivalent mass of trees.
CO2 absorption by planting bamboo
Bamboo is an excellent CO2 sensor.
The absorption of greenhouse gas by bamboo is 5 times greater than an equivalent volume of trees and also produces 35% additional oxygen!
Massive bamboo planting would, by acting as filters, reduce the excess of toxic gases and pollutants in the air (CO, CO2 and methane in particular) and micro-particles.
We are planting bamboo around polluted places. By participating in this project you are helping to widen the absorption zones.
"Jellyfishbot" robot-type macro-robots
Innovative robotic solutions for the collection of floating waste and oil spills.
The French company IADYS has created Jellyfishbot, a very manoeuvrable little robot that criss-crosses between boats sucking up waste. Energy efficient, inexpensive, the robot will be marketed in June and is already of interest to several communities. As soon as possible, we will acquire one and we will put it into action near the Lake Patenggang.
Install recycling systems
Recycling systems such as coloured bins for sorting.
Why is recycling important?
♻ Recycling reduces the amount of waste going into a landfill, helping to prolong its useful life
♻ Recycling saves energy and thus greenhouse gas emissions
♻ Recycling creates jobs
♻ Recycling saves natural resources such as oil and water
♻ Recycling reduces pollution
♻ Recycling provides raw materials for industry
♻ Recycling makes a difference
Through plastic balers, we plan to offer first and foremost people living in poverty and affected by natural disasters, significant benefits: reduction in energy bills and housing improvement.
Being a circular system, it would allow us to offer an alternative to conventional construction while recycling plastic by producing bricks.
The plastic bottle press is a vertical double chamber baler, made for the compaction of plastic bottles and aluminium cans (small or large bottles). Collecting residual liquid in a 30L tank through its connection tap, this plastic bottle press features free loading while the machine is in use thus ensuring time savings and a high rate of compaction. Intended for indoor and outdoor installation, the plastic bottle press features a roller-guided head for smooth movement and a 9mm wide flexible strip for strapping.
Explanatory and educational booklets
We are busy designing educational and explanatory booklets on the issues of plastic pollution in the world.We plan to distribute them in schools and to the local population.
A change is generally not understood immediately and takes time. Rational arguments are useful as they can participate in the creation of a reassuring framework which can be favourable to change. It is with this in mind that we have decided to focus on the educational component.
It is therefore necessary to discuss the change with all of the concerned parties (schools, local authorities, etc.) by making children live, learn and participate in the transition that we are putting in place.
“Education is the most powerful weapon that can be used to change the world.” Nelson Mandela
“We must educate children not only with regard to the present but rather for a better condition of the human species that might be possible in the future.” Kant
Its purpose is to clean up stagnant water but also to tackle the presence of plastic in lakes.
Trash Wheel will be installed at a strategic location: at the end of the Citarum river which flows into the Indian Ocean. The garbage that is present in streams is then directed towards the machine.
Once located near Trash Wheel, the waste ends up on a conveyor belt that runs on water and solar energy. They end their journey in a rubbish bin located at the rear of the machine.
The garbage that is collected, including plastic products, will then be incinerated to generate electricity. Incineration is a process for thermal treatment of waste with excess air. This process consists of burning household waste and ordinary industrial waste in ovens adapted to their characteristics. However, incineration can be done with energy recovery. This consists of recovering the heat released by the combustion of the fuel elements contained in the waste. This heat, initially recovered in the form of pressurised steam, will then be either used to supply an urban heating network or neighbouring industries, or introduced into a turbine to produce electricity.
Alan d'Alfonso Peral, passionate about the sea, invented the Recyclamer. This robot looks like those that can be seen in private swimming pools and sucks up pollution such as waste or oil, whether at sea or on lakes. It can be considered as a vacuum cleaner of seas and lakes. This invention runs on electricity and solar power. Three models have so far been developed. The smallest is intended for ports. The model shown allows the depollution of coastal areas. There is also a larger model that is 5 m long and 2.50 m wide. The first one is available for pre-order at a price of 10,000 € and has already won over Mediterranean municipalities and ports in France and Spain. The energy autonomy is around sixty hours and the filter oil should be changed every twenty-five days. To empty the waste, simply remove the basket without taking the robot out of the water.

Mesh drains preventing water bodies pollution as one of the facilities provided to used to accurately resolve the boundary layers present at the liquid-foam interface as well as other strong gradients that can develop during the drainage process.
Drainage nets (or “trash traps”) such as the StormX netting trash trap. This net helps reduce the discharge of plastic waste from drainage systems due to its fine mesh netting which is placed on the outlet of a drainage pipe. This represents a very cost-effective and efficient way of reducing water plastic pollution and making the environment cleaner for wildlife.
