Plastic is one of the most precious materials on earth. It is lightweight, strong, easy to shape and great to recycle. But of all the plastic we use only 10% is recycled. This is due mainly to the expensive and complex machinery that is used in plastic production. Dave Hakkens has developed a small-scale recycling workshop. His machines are inexpensive, easy to use and able to produce small quantities. And they are made to process recycled plastic. Bring your waste plastic to a workshop like this near you, and it can be turned into new products.
