Plastic Recycling


Project Description

At Pangloss Labs, we really don’t like waste.  So when a CNC project created an entire bin liner full of POM plastic shavings, we didn’t want to throw it away, even if in the Pays de Gex, it is burned to created electricity.  So we started seeing what we can do here, inspired by the Precious Plastic project.IMG_20160829_180338

Our aim is to take the shavings and recreate blocks of material that we can carve in the CNC.  So far, we
can see clearly that we need to clamp the material while it cools to stop it wrinkling.

 

We will also try extruding 3D printer filament in our filamaker.
