We throw away most of our plastic after a single use, especially at festivals and events. Visitors get used to throwing plastics away and start to see it as a worthless disposable material. The material quality however is just as good as it was before the usage. By recycling the plastic step for step into a new product we make visitors realise how valuable this plastic can be. We let people transform their throwaway drinking cups with 3d-printer in new products they care about. The Perpetual Plastic Project is all about showing everyone, young and old, how it's done.

The process consist of 4 steps:

1. Cleaning & Dying the waste plastic

2. Shredding the plastic into small pieces

3. Extruding the plastic into 3d-printer filament

4. 3D-printing of a new product based on a 3D model.

Perpetual Plastic Project installation

The make recycling possible on the spot the full-size installation features a washer/dryer, two shredders, one extruder and three 3D-printers. This does not mean that it is a true production facility. Visitors drive the machines themselves which makes it more like a craft and also more fun and educational. 

The installation is designed as a modulair system in such a way that it is easy to transport and can host up to 20 visitors at the same time. Together with the installation experienced staff is there to guide the visitors through the process and explain the steps in more detail.  

Kids, students, business men and grandparents, we have worked with every target group and all are fascinated by the hands-on recycle process. 

Several extension options are available to create a custom experience for your event. Next to that a mini version of the installation is available for small events.
