It started with the idea of using the energy produced by vehicles to capture pollution on prime roadways. The inventor of GoRolloe came up with the concept while cycling through the streets of London and being exposed to gases and particulate matter.
The product is currently undergoing engineering development and testing. The project is run by Kristen Tapping, Founder and Principal Design Engineer, out of the workshops and studios of London South Bank University. GoRolloe plans to pilot launch with local authorities and private bike rental schemes by fall 2021 and be commercial by spring 2022. We plan on rolling out to consumers shortly after, so stay tuned!
