Research – Ocean Plastics – Plastics Shredder

Ocean Plastics

This RSAF1 ( ) funded project is the first phase in the fabrication of a plastic recycling/repurposing ecosystem based on the work of Dave Hakkens and Precious Plastics .

Our Plastics Shredder will, in its second phase, be coupled with a Langara built (Makerspace!) plastic injection moulding machine. We will be exploring these new tools,technologies and ideas as a means to reimagine plastic waste.

These proof of concept tools are aimed at building a mobile, self-replicating toolkit that can be used to begin addressing the issue of marine plastic pollution, micro economics, and design thinking in remote locations on the BC Coast. Stay Tuned – Get involved!
