As part of the final project of the undergraduate degree in mechanical engineering at the University of Sherbrooke, 12 students have given themselves the objective of :
Design and manufacture a prototype that collects the small plastic particles accumulated on Kamilo Beach in Hawaii.
The project took part in collaboration with the Hawaii Wildlife fund (HWF) since they have been doing cleanups on Kamilo beach for more than 20 years.
Prototype tested in Quebec and ready to be shipped to his final destination : Kamilo Beach Hawaii
At the end of their undergraduate studies, three members of the initial team decided to pursue the school project in a business venture, thereby creating Hoola One Technologies Inc. Their goal:
To develop tools to restore the ecosystem affected by plastic pollution and enable ecosystem restoration.
The prototype arrives at its final destination. The team travels to Hawaii to test the prototype in a real environment and to do the commissionning. The prototype is donated to HWF so they can clean up Kamilo Beach.
Visit of shorelines affected by plastic pollution (Hawaii, American and Canadian Westcoast)
From prototype to final product
It is known as one of the worst spot in the entire world for marine debris accumulation.
