Partnering to make "Blue Tech" devices available on the entire East Coast! 

What is Blue Technology?

Blue technologies are marine debris intervention devices that will help remove waste from our oceans, beaches, and waterways. These innovative devices and systems are designed to monitor and clean our oceans without harming marine ecosystems.

Introduce and Educate 

While Blue Technology is not a fool-proof solution to the marine debris problem, it can prevent more waste from polluting our waterways while simultaneously educating the public about this issue and why it is important to implement sustainable practices in our daily lives. 

How we use Blue Tech

Seaside Sustainability uses blue technologies to conduct original marine science investigations in order to better understand the specific needs of the Cape Ann and North Shore waterways. These technologies enhance the data we collect and provide new opportunities for marine research.

Facilitating Opportunities for Change

Seaside Sustainability’s Blue Tech team acts as facilitators in the sale and distribution of blue technology devices. These devices are useful tools aligned with Seaside's mission, and our goal is to get them into the hands of as many organizations as possible to assist in cleaning up our ocean as well as ensuring they are used for educating the public.

Education is Key

Through the development of an educational curriculum, the Blue Technology team seeks to build partnerships with various organizations to utilize blue technology as an educational tool.

Behind the Scenes

Seaside has partnered with Searial Cleaners to facilitate distribution of blue technology devices designed to clean our oceans, beaches and protected waterways.

InvisiBubble

The InvisiBubble is a bubble curtain that purifies water, redirects debris and sediments to a collection point, quarantines fine materials, reduces erosion in critical areas, prevents sediment dispersion and resuspension, and promotes water clarity. Fight against eutrophication with aeration. It increases the oxygen level in the water and reduces odors and stagnant water. Limits excessive nutrient loading in the water (less algae).

Pixie Drone

The Pixie Drone is a floating drone that collects various forms of marine debris and oils, along with data on water pollution. This device can be manual or autonomous with the ability to re-route when it encounters an obstacle. It functions best in areas with calm waters, such as marinas, harbors, or ports, meaning it is collecting marine debris and cutting off pollution in waterways before it can escape out into the ocean.

BeBot

The Bebot sifts sand, rakes seaweed, levels sandy areas, lifts and transports loads. It collects all the waste buried in the defined area. It is totally secure since it signals its presence, it adheres to steep terrain. It preserves the fauna, the flora and the sand during its passage.100% electric, it works on solar panels and does not produce any nautical or greenhouse gas emissions.Low sound volume, it works at any time of the day and night without restriction.

Collec'Thor

The Collec'Thor is a second generation trash skimmer. The skimmer is an electric floating waste collector that is easily attached to free-floating docks. It's electric and can pump up to 32,000 liters/hour and can operate quietly 24/7. The catch bag has a capacity of 220 lbs. The device is low maintenance and can be pulled up to hip height for easy cleaning. The environmental benefits are endless with this device by collecting solid and floating wastes around dock, reducing plastics in the water, and prevents wastes from escaping docks and ending up into open ocean.
