River clean up

River clean up is a complex subject. However complex problems need not have expensive solutions. AlphaMERS has designed a floating trash barrier to flowing waters in rivers and storm water drains. This barrier works 24 x 7 without operating costs and brings trash to the side of the river for easy removal by municipal channels. The design is patent applied. 

The barrier is now successfully deployed at Cooum river river in Chennai. 

This trash barrier is useful for debris control in oil spill situations. 

This trash barrier is also useful for preventing ingress of debris into cooling water intakes of coastal power plants.
