RECYCLAMER INNOVATION was created in 2018 by ALAN D'ALFONSO PERAL, from his association recyclamer.org in order to respond to the problem of waste that this sailor and diver passionate about the sea and the ocean had noticed during his maritime travels.
An innovation to clean up efficiently and effortlessly
Initially designed as an educational tool to raise awareness about marine pollution, the robot Geneseas™ offers an effective solution to keep ports, marinas and other aquatic areas clean.
It collects floating solid waste thanks to a 140 kg basket and captures hydrocarbons via a 100% natural and recyclable filter. It is also capable of monitoring essential water quality parameters in order to identify potential sources of contamination and to be able to intervene quickly to prevent diffuse pollution.
Geneseas™ is :
• Respectful: 100% electric and additionally powered by a solar panel, it does not emit any pollution and navigates silently while respecting the aquatic fauna.
• Connected: equipped with a GPS, it can be steered manually using a radio control or switched to automatic mode to be controlled by a web application
An eco-responsible robot "made in New Aquitaine".FRANCE
For its creator, Alan d'Alfonso Peral, passionate about the marine world and a fervent defender of the environment, it was important to integrate the challenges of sustainable development into each phase of the project. "I chose to favour short circuits for the entire value chain by working with local players," he confides. The objective: to leave the lowest carbon footprint of its activity. It couldn't be otherwise in his eyes.
Thus, most of the scientific or technical partners who have worked around the robot are located in the territory of New Aquitaine. And for the others, they are neighbours of the Region. As an example, the fibres that make up the hydrocarbon filter come from a local culture of the Massif Central. Thus, from sourcing, through design to the marketing phase, we can speak of a locally produced robot.
Installed in Limousin since its creation, the company is based in Saint Junien on the banks of the river, and has developed the first fully automated robot for use in marinas, to which has been associated a collection system for surface hydrocarbons filtered thanks to a unique and patented material designed in conjunction with the laboratories of the University of Limoges.
The range is designed to be scalable and integrated. The size M (GENESEAS M) is the evolution of the robot in order to intervene either alone or in flotilla and will be integrated in the project "concept" that we have developed for offshore areas.
