APRAM, S.A., has acquired a new floating solid waste pollution device known as the ‘Enhancer E-B2100,’ the first of its kind to be used in Portugal.
Created to combat maritime pollution and protect ocean waters by removing floating waste, the new machine is capable of containing large amounts of floating surface debris, while allowing smaller particles, and most natural materials suspended in the water column to pass through and is said to be the perfect choice for waste collection and management. The equipment allows for the collection of waste material either through isolated installation or by fixed location with the aid of an RO-FENCE 600 barrier.
The Chairman of the Board of Directors of APRAM S.A, Paula Cabaço, considers this as “another step in the company’s goal of ongoing environmental sustainability.”
The new acquisition cost 48,710.00 euros with European funding equating to 30,152.74 euros, through the Oceanlit Project, a territorial cooperation project between Madeira, the Azores, the Canary Islands, and Cape Verde, through the Interreg MAC 2014-2020 programme, co-financed by the EU and whose objective is to reduce marine litter, promote the conservation and recovery of protected coastal and marine natural areas in ocean archipelagos.
