For a cleaner Danube: four strong partners start cleanup in Romania
  • Audi Environmental Foundation, BABOR, Ferry Porsche Foundation, and the green startup everwave are joining forces to rid the Danube watershed of garbage
  • Rüdiger Recknagel, Director of the Audi Environmental Foundation: “Our future will only continue to be livable if we permanently and sustainably protect drinking water”
  • Cleanup mission starts around Earth Day, April 22

The Ferry Porsche Foundation, German cosmetics manufacturer the BABOR BEAUTY GROUP, green startup everwave, and the Audi Environmental Foundation are starting a cleanup mission together. Around Earth Day (April 22), the quartet will deploy everwave’s highly efficient garbage collection boat CollectiX. Equipped with a conveyor belt and intelligent sensors, the boat will gather information about the amount, type, and composition of garbage. Long term solutions and prevention concepts for the region can be developed on that basis. In all, the boat will spend five weeks in Romania collecting plastic and other waste from the Danube and its tributaries.
