4ocean, a purpose-driven B Corp with a mission to end the ocean plastic crisis, is pleased to announce their partnership with Poralu Marine, a global leader in marine- grade technologies, on the launch of the BeBot in the United States, an impressive beach cleaning robot designed to recover coastal plastic debris.
The electric-powered BeBot can clean up to 3,000sqm of beach per hour, 20-30x more effective than collecting trash by hand. The machine is agile and easy to maneuver, a clear differentiator from existing options, and it specifically excels at removing small pieces of plastic and other trash that are notoriously difficult to clean by hand, using small 1cm x 1cm sifting grids to separate these items from the sand.
Traditional machines are typically very large, powered by gas, and often repurposed from other agricultural purposes, making them poorly suited for more delicate beach cleanup work. In contrast, the BeBot's smaller footprint and more shallow cleaning depth of 10cm, effectively removes common beach trash while avoiding disruptions to any nearby habitats or animals, providing a more effective and sustainable approach to cleanups.
Meant to be used daily, the BeBot is remote operated and can be controlled by an operator up to approximately 950 feet away. The robot makes minimal noise while cleaning and requires a much smaller footprint for storage, making it the ideal cleaning method for beaches in populated areas. This design approach was intentionally created with cleaning trash in mind, which is a first of its kind. 4ocean is on track to remove 20 million pounds of trash by year's end and the BeBot will be essential in helping the brand reach this important milestone.
This impressive beach cleaning robot represents important innovation in the ocean reclamation space, thinking creatively about the more effective, efficient and eco-friendly way to remove the small plastics that currently litter our beaches. 4ocean and Poralu Marine are thrilled collaborating as leaders in this space, preventing further pollution of our oceans.
