Converting Plastic Waste Into Valuable Objects
Plastic Odyssey has built a mobile manufacturing workshop: an onboard recycling center that travels from city to city and offers residents the opportunity to transform plastic waste into useful products. This mobile space contains technologies, tools, and directions to recycle plastic that is about to end up in the trash. Those technologies include a bike shredder for plastic waste, machines to weave old plastic bags, and others to melt used caps to design new objects. All these technologies are open access.
