Miklós Gyalai-Korpos

River Cleaning Robot Inventor

Oceans are not the only bodies of water flooded by plastic waste. The problem usually starts with rivers - which oftentimes carry this plastic to the ocean. Miklós got fed up and took action to address this pressing challenge. He created Robo-Collect — a cutting-edge, automatic river-cleaning boat equipped with advanced cameras. This remarkable invention can identify, collect, and categorize waste that would otherwise take as much as 450 years to decompose. With Robo-Collect at work, Miklós envisions a cleaner, safer, and less toxic Earth, fostering a better future for all inhabitants.
