Innovation to tackle the plastic crisis

The new episode focuses again on the alliance of GROHE and the social business everwave. This time it takes us to the Italian river Bacchiglione, where the prototype of the HiveX clean-up platform is tested.

Having collaborated with everwave since 2019, GROHE is a proud contributor to the inauguration of the patented HiveX platform which was launched in Padua. The anchored, stationary platform uses the power of the river stream to continuously divert and store floating waste – it is energy-efficient and environmentally friendly since the passive technology uses energy from its environment to operate.

HiveX prevents the litter from reaching the Gulf of Venice, thereby hindering eventual damage to the environment and wildlife. Learn in the video how this energy-efficient innovation can help solve the plastic crisis.
