Takeaways:

  • Designer Reiten Cheng has developed a recycling machine that can be 3D printed and used to turn plastic bottles into filament for additive manufacturing.
  • While the machine only takes PET bottles for now, other users have proposed adding grinders so that the machine can recycle different kinds of plastic waste.
  • “I am imagining a future where products can be manufactured at home or in a community centre and be recycled into things at the end of their life that can be used again to manufacture new products right on-site” said Cheng.
