C-Filter

About

A microfibre-based filtration system to tackle marine pollution

C-Filter is the first microfibre filtration system to target pollution in the marine environment. With many solutions aimed at stopping the fibres from reaching the ocean, none focus on the fibres which have already made their journey there. The system marries together passive and active filtration to create a 2-tier filtration system which effectively collects microfibres on a macro scale. It can be implemented in multiple locations and is fully submersible to target zones with higher densities of microfibres, maximising capture. C-Filter is powered by renewable energy sources to ensure low environmental impact.

    I am a product design engineer currently specializing in environmental products and systems. I have recently graduated with a 1st Class Masters in Product Design Engineering from The University of Glasgow in conjunction with the Glasgow School of Art. I am particularly interested in solutions which remedy both historic and current pollution and wish to follow a career in this area, designing products that improve the quality of life for people around the world and for the natural environment.more
