SURABAYA ACCESS PAD

Surabaya Access Pad (SAP) is a fully funded three-month landing pad program explicitly designed for ventures that are creating innovative ocean plastic pollution prevention products or services. SAP participants have proven their model in one or several markets and are actively planning their expansion to Surabaya. The program provides support in three critical areas of business expansion: network, local industry knowledge, and access to funding.

COHORT 1 (2020)

Clear Rivers

Clear Rivers designed a passive floating system able to capture plastic litter carried by the river current. They use a circular approach as a crucial element of their strategy, therefore the Litter Traps are almost entirely made from recycled plastic retrieved from the rivers. They are currently developing different types of Litter Trap, where dimensions, capacity and costs change in order to be suitable for rivers and countries worldwide. Neither the installment of the Trap nor its operation will cause any harm to the environment. In fact, CLEAR RIVERS designed openings in order to create escape routes for fish, birds and other animals.
