Purifying stormwater, at the source, in the stormwater drain, is the most elegant solution to a growing problem for communities and property.
Swedrop is a disposable filter which floats in the standing water of the stormwater drain.
The filter extracts hydrocarbons, chemicals and heavy metals.
After 12 months the filter is removed and incinerated.
EU regulations requires stormwater to be treated to acceptable quality by 2021.
Optineo makes the Swedrop. Optineo was at the Singularity University Global Summit 2018 last week.
