To overcome current shortcomings in collecting microplastic waste in water systems, HKRITA has developed this innovative and sustainable system to separate microplastics during water treatment, significantly preserving the water quality. The system utilises sweeping acoustic waves and a specially shaped chamber to trap and recover microplastic fibres effectively. Unlike existing filtration processes, the system enables continuous water treatment and easy collection of microplastic fibres by virtue of its acoustic manipulation technique.
