SBBUOY

Microplastic capturing buoy

SB BUOY is a semi-submerged buoy that faces the filtering face against the water flow and captures the microplastics present in the water.

PROJECT

SBBUOY

This is a pilot project that has the objective of knowing the reality of the problem of microplastics present in the water of our coasts.

 

The scope of the project

focuses on 3 phases:

Capture:

Collection of significant samples from

floating particles between 4 and 0.5 mm. 

Study:

Characterization of the items

by an outside lab.

Reporting:

Information and awareness campaign with the results obtained.

Microplastic capturing buoy

TAKES PROFIT OF THE STRUCTURE OF THE COASTLINE SIGNALING TO BE INSTALLED.

.

The SB BUOY is installed on the various coastal band buoys that delimit the bathing area during the summer season and is removed along with them. This is a non-invasive and low cost system.

USES THE ENERGY OF THE MARINE CURRENTS TO WORK

SB BUOY requires only the energy supplied by the sea currents. It has a hydrodynamic design inspired by the manta fish. The microplastics that enter the SB BUOY are confined to its interior thanks to its patented dynamic filtering system. The filtering is focused on particles between 4 and 0.5 mm. According to the most rigorous studies, it is in this range that we can find the vast majority of existing microplastics. At the same time the SB BUOY filter allows the passage of plankton to promote the correct course of marine life.

HIGH FILTERING CAPACITY OF MICROPLASTICS. MINIMUM MAINTENANCE.

.

During the season they stay in the water (between 3 and 5 months) they do not need any more maintenance than being supervised on time. The nanoceramic coating (NON-BIOCIDE) of the inner filter prevents marine life from embedding and allows a regular flow of water during its activity.

ANCHORED SB BUOYS

.

These are the municipalities that have been encouraged to be part of the project.

Thanks to them we can draw up a map of the current state of microplastic contamination on our coastline.

Thank you very much for your collaboration !!
