BeBot Beach Robot


What is the BeBot?

BeBots are beach screening robots that screen sand 1-4" below the surface. They were created in France by Searial Cleaners.

These robots screen sand for debris including microplastics that are not readily visible to the human eye. Fully controlled by a handheld remote, with a human always present with the robot. 


They are 100% electric & emit no harmful gasses, greenhouse or otherwise.

What does a BeBot do?

A BeBot targets waste & debris that sit below the sands surface- the discarded waste not visible just walking on the sand.These particles are sifted and collected.


This machine generates a considerable amount of awareness of its purpose, and interest from beach-goers, prompting questions from adults, and children.
