Water issue adressed: Too dirty

The amalgamation of both hydro-electricity and microplastic filtration is an area that is currently unexplored. Our project provides a new alternative ultimately making sustainable energy even more environmentally friendly. Both concepts combined, meet several of the UN’s sustainable development goals. We have optimised our target market to appeal to both LIC’s (Lower income countries), where clean energy will elevate living conditions, and to the HIC’s (Higher income countries), who are the largest production point of microplastics. With minimal prevention of contamination of bodies of water for both locations from household wastewater, our product will tackle this due to its promise of clean energy in a world currently prioritising sustainable energy and the prevention of plastic pollution.
