First tested in 2019 on Kamilo Beach in Hawaii, Hoola One has found instant success with the first version of its machine which cleans beaches of plastic and microplastic pollution. In the fall of 2020, the Hoola One team will finalize the design of the second innovative version of its technology, HO II. Designed with the support of coastal experts, marine biologists, and potential clients around the world, Hoola One is proud to announce its new technology which is better adapted to customer’s needs and is more eco-friendly.
HO II stands out in its capacity to clean tourist beaches as well as natural beaches of micro and macro plastic particles while simultaneously putting all organic matter back in the environment. This technological advancement lowers the impact on ecosystems since the machine only collects plastic particles during cleanups. This innovation significantly reduces the amount of waste collected and also makes the recycling of that material more accessible. In addition, the new machine is able to clean up hard to reach places and to work on rugged terrain while maintaining a high treatment capacity.
This new technology plans to be tested during the summer of 2021 around the Canadian Great Lakes in collaboration with many local organizations, experts, and scientists. Hoola One’s team is currently working to put together many other strategic collaborations, partnerships, and projects nationally and internationally.
Hoola One will be showcasing its technologies at the Great Lakes Commission's annual meeting on November 18, 2020.
