Jury Comment: EcoCube is a pontoon-like solar-powered floating building constructed from natural fibres and bio epoxy resin. It acts as a receiving station for wastewater and rubbish from leisure vessels and can offer tank top-ups from desalinated water. It is designed to be monitored remotely, will broadcast AIS signals to be discovered easily and offer control via onboard touch screens or a phone app. While noting the merit of its detailed design, the jury specifically wanted to recognise the EcoCube’s potential to be placed in highly visible locations as reminder for boat owners to treat all waste products with sensitivity and not have any excuses for bad practices.
