WasteShark: A Marine Robot that Removes Floating Waste and Collect Water Quality Data

Aqua Libra, best known for its range of infused sparkling waters, also develops technology with the vision to make hydration healthier and more sustainable. Today it continues on its mission with the launch of London’s first WasteShark into the Middle Dock at Canary Wharf in partnership with Canary Wharf Group, ahead of Global Recycling Day on 18 March 2023.

Aqua Libra wants to show that a future free from plastic waste is possible, reducing the need for single use plastic through its groundbreaking Flavour Tap technology, and addressing the environmental plastic problem through partnerships and innovation. The launch of the WasteShark will be monumental in proving that a plastic waste free future for our capital is possible, starting with London’s Canary Wharf.

WasteShark is the world’s first marine robot that has been cleverly designed to remove floating waste and collect water quality data from the area’s waterways. The WasteShark is battery powered and can navigate up to 5km of water and collect up to 500 kg of plastic and pollutants per day, without producing any noise or light pollution as it roams the canals.

Once waste is collected, it is then recycled to live on again where possible. The launch of Aqua Libra’s WasteShark in Canary Wharf is the first step to tackling the issue of plastic waste in London, and the brand hopes it will encourage consumers to make small changes in their everyday lives to recycle more and help towards its mission of a waste free future.
