Abstract: This study investigates a novel river cleaning system, removing macroplastics from running waters. The cleaning method uses drum screen units to pass transported plastic particles towards the riverbank. A series of experiments in a physical test stand of a single drum screen analyses the flow depth distribution of representative macroplastic particles and the interaction of the particles with the horizontal bar rake system of the drum screen.
