Danube cleanup mission in Romania: more than five boatloads of garbage collected daily

Danube cleanup mission in Romania
  • The Audi Environmental Foundation, BABOR, the Ferry Porsche Foundation, and the green startup everwave are spending five weeks cleaning the Olt River, a tributary of the Danube, near the city of Făgăraș
  • Rüdiger Recknagel, Director of the Audi Environmental Foundation: “For us, every day is Earth Day”
  • Tilman Flöhr, CTO everwave: “By deploying our technologies on rivers, we are stopping the problem right at its root.”

For the second year in a row, the Audi Environmental Foundation is working with the green startup everwave and German cosmetics manufacturer BABOR BEAUTY GROUP to collect garbage floating in rivers and help preserve biodiversity and protect natural environments for animals and plants. The Ferry Porsche Foundation is also participating for the first time this year as our fourth action partner. The quartet is using everwave’s garbage collection boat Collectix for five weeks to clear the Olt River around the city of Făgăraș.
