The Interceptor has been designed for mass production and can be applied virtually anywhere in the world.
The debris enters the Interceptor with the natural current of the river. All electronics on the Interceptor, including the conveyor belt, shuttle, lights, sensors, data transmission, are solar-powered.
The Interceptor is internet-connected, allowing us to gather continuous performance and collection data. It also enables the Interceptor™ to automatically notify local operators once the dumpsters are full.
How It Works
- River waste flowing with the current is guided by the barrier towards the opening of the Interceptor.
- The water flow path is optimized to pass through the system, carrying the plastic onto the conveyor belt.
- The current moves the debris onto a conveyor belt.
- Then, continuously extracts the debris from the water and delivers the waste to the shuttle.
- A shuttle automatically distributes the debris across six dumpsters.
- Using sensor data, the containers are filled equally until they reach full capacity.
- The Interceptor can store up to 50m³ of trash before needing to be emptied.
- This means it’s capable of operating even in the most polluted rivers all over the world.
Empty and Recycle
- When the interceptor is almost full, it sends a text message to the local operators to come and collect the waste.
- Operators then remove the barge, bring it to the side of the river, empty the dumpsters, send off the debris to local waste management facilities, and return the barge back into the Interceptor™.
