Jellyfishbot can clean oil, hydrocarbons, and plastics from water surfaces without any risk to workers or wildlife.

P and D Marine Services is calling on councils, companies, and communities to take a more active role in tackling water pollution. The company is currently leading the way with Jellyfishbot, an incredible floating device that cleans plastic, microplastics, debris, and even oil from water surfaces. After a recent clean-up event in Diglis Marina, which was supported by Worcester City Council and the Canal & River Trust, the Burton-based company is urging other organizations to get involved in maintaining their waterways and addressing the various types of pollution that are damaging marine ecosystems. P and D Marine Services is offering free demonstrations of Jellyfishbot to help organizations take swift action to tackle the problem.

It has become clear that those responsible for pollution are not just consumers, but also companies and organizations that are not taking responsibility for the issues caused by their waste. Industrial pollutants, such as oil and microplastic waste generated from plastic production, introduce ammonia, phosphates, and other chemicals into marine environments. By taking responsibility for how their waste products are stored, corporations can help to spearhead a new era of corporate responsibility and the mission to care for the environment.

Organizations that maintain a commercial waterway or dispose of wastewater via drainage into canals and rivers should take action to maintain the waters they pollute. Devices like Jellyfishbot can make cleaning these reserves of wastewater much easier for companies and, consequently, reduce the pollution entering our watercourses. Jellyfishbot can be equipped with a range of attachments that enable it to collect different types of floating waste, from wider nets that collect plastic waste, ultra-fine mesh nets that sift microplastics, or even booms to sequester and skim oil from water surfaces.

Simon Nadin, Managing Director for P and D Marine Services, offered his perspective on the issue: "The problem doesn't just lie in consumer plastics and rubbish in our rivers and canals, but the effect that industry and agriculture has on our waterways. By taking responsibility for how their waste products are stored, corporations can help to spearhead a new future for corporate responsibility and the mission to care for our environment."
