The problem of waste plastic is crystal clear to everybody, and it is getting worse by the day.
Precious Plastic is an amazing organisation that exists for the sole purpose of reducing plastic waste. One of the ways they are doing this is by developing open source machines that turn waste plastic into useful things.
On the web site there are detailed step by step instructions to build a range of plastic recycling equipment, from injection moulding machines, extrusion machines, a sheet-press, and of course shredders, with out which very little recycling could be done. We have built the small version of the shredder, and expect to build one or two of the other machines in the near future.
