We have designed and engineered innovative solutions to fight and track marine debris. See why our waters are under attack!

Clean Earth Rovers

Coastal Pollution

While much of the open ocean is filled with plastics so are marinas, ports and harbors around the world. 

Most importantly the pollution in these areas is not limited to plastics. Many marinas face mass marine die outs, harmful algae blooms, and pesky natural pollutants. 

All along the west and gulf coast marinas, ports, and harbors are plagued with marine debris and have no efficient solutions. 


Agricultural Runoff

Agricultural runoff is a direct result of pesticides, and other agricultural

bi-products causing:

  • algal blooms that kill fish

  • reduce water quality

  • reduce oxygen levels in the water

The only way to resolve this issue is to remove the harmful waste from the water. 

Marine Die-out

Oxygen levels in nearshore waterways around the world are dropping like never before. This has some dangerous side effects:

  • large fish die outs

  • reduced water quality

  • reduced botanicals like seagrass 

Unfortunately when these die out events happen it causes masses of fish to wash up in marinas, beaches, and waterways everywhere.

Plastic Pollution

90% of the plastic in the oceans lies within nearshore waterways.  Different weather patterns and currents can easily cause mass amounts of plastic pollutants and natural debris to enter:

  • Marinas

  • Yacht clubs

  • Harbors

  • Ports

This debris is costly, resulting in fines, property damage, and global contributions to open ocean plastic waste. 


How It Works

The Plastics Piranha has been strategically engineered to pull plastics from the coastal waterways. By skimming marina facilities, the rover will be able to collect 300 lbs. of waste per trip.


The Plastics Piranha finds the trash in your marina and efficiently pulls it into the machine. This allows it to hold all of the trash in the dumpster and keep it out of our oceans.

Water Quality Data

While The Plastics Piranha is collecting trash and other debris from marinas and near shore waterways, it will also be collecting mass amounts of water quality data. The rover will track metrics like: 

  • Dissolved Oxygen

  • Oxygen

  • Temperature

  • PH and more.

Cloud Based Autonomy

The Plastics Piranha we will be able to guide the itself anywhere in the marina using autonomous self-driving technology for reliable and unmanned cleanups. 

Sustainable and Safe


We care about the environment just as much as we care about saving it. That's why The Plastics Piranha is 100% electric and uses obstacle avoidance software to stay out of boaters and marine lifes way.
