Ilot Vert is a demonstration and awareness-raising tool for recycling and clean energy, designed by Sophie Picoty.
Ilot Vert floats on the water by means of modules composed of plastic bottles recovered from the Seine. The aim was to re-appropriate the Seine in a civic-minded, collective and concrete way, thanks to an independent platform that sensitises inhabitants to the cleanup of the canal.
The basic units are made of trash regularly scooped up from the Seine; additional modules integrate decontaminating plants, a principle involving solar distillation, water purification, hydraulic and wind energy.
