Environmental Sediments Treatment (EST), one of the winners of the Crisalide 2014 Innovation Competition, has developed a new dredging process.
They have invented the first dredging robot, which can meet the dredging needs of lakes, ponds and dams.
Environmental Sediments Treatment has also released a video about this technology.
“When our pumping system is activated, we take maximum sediment without increasing the turbidity of the natural environment. Once sorted and the sediment has dried, it is compressed into bricks and finally packed on a pallet. Without disturbing the aquatic environment, our dredging robot works tirelessly to remove accumulated silt,” they stated.
