Hello Dave,
I am Jigme (Jimmy)  from Bhutan and I have joined recently in the army (PP) . I wanted to ask you what are the process and how much money I need to come to Netherlands. I want to undergo the basic training for machine making and assembling the machines part by part.
I don’t have any technical skills because I was doing my majors in B. A political science and sociology.  I really want to start PP projects in Bhutan.

Thank you.

@sahelfablab
Best way to start would be to start a new topic in the

Give the community your view on questions and problems we face.

Hi
I am new here and already finding the site a mine of information:-)
Sometime in the past our company started collecting bottle caps and unfortunately did not separate them into different types so we now have 4 bulk bags ( approx 3 tonnes) of mixed PP and HDPE tops.
Any suggestions/ideas of what we could do with them?

There is a dedicated forum for Questions like yours:
Questions
Start a topic over there, add some pictures (3 tonnes of bottle caps, wow) and people can reply more easily.

This topic is mainly for asking Dave personal questions…

What is better?
Following a principle and being known mostly for that or not imposing ideas but being more integrated into the standard?

I am currently trying to build plastic extrusion machine to make quality 3d printing filament. Specifically, I am trying to take plastic water bottles (PET) and 3d print objects from them. If anyone has accomplished this or is interested in doing the same thing please message me and we can collaborate! The more sharing of information the better for all of us!

Hi Dave,
i’m sometimes imagineering at the crossroads of non destructive plastic upcycling and o.a improved sanitation (the knock on potential can be huge)… question;-

-have you considered collecting/upcycling urine @ the PP project?
(no pun intended 😉

Why you don’t just grab the rest of the money, buy a nice house, pick up some some awesome training, have a nice and healthy life with a nice wife and some kids whilst the PP community works out the missing parts of the project ? It doesn’t need that much; a good WordPress setup and a few custom addons; some bounties on new & better machines via vouching, PP crowd funding, etc… In latest 10 years you gonna be super happy not to end up in another broke eco – village experiment. You deserve it !

Hello Dave!
I am Amol from India. It’s been 3 months since I started learning about Plastic Recycling Scenario in India, and Technologies currently available for recycling different types of Plastic. I see a lot of insensitivity among People in India towards Plastics. Most of the Plastics is ending up into Landfill. But I see the worse when I visit my village where Plastics is littered anywhere which eventually becomes a part of the soil or is incinerated in open. I want to stop this.

My question is…
Is it possible to use your Technology to recycle Type 4, 5 and 7 Plastics? These Plastics are used in food packagings, Milk packets and as Wrappers. Such Plastic products are purchased at a cheaper price, so people just litter it without a second thought. If I can use your Tech. to recycle such Plastics and implement it in Villages or any other remote locations, it will be great work. Also, these Plastics have a thin layer of Aluminium inside thus making it “Metallo-plastic”. So kindly help me to get started.

Hola Dave, espero te encuentres bien. Antes de hacer mi pregunta quiero expresar que me encanta este proyecto y me gustaría llevarlo a cabo en Santiago de Chile. Estoy viendo el video sobre la construcción de la trituradora de plástico y necesito saber si hay un lugar donde pueda comprar la cuchillas y la barra de metal donde se ajustan, o es algo que se manda a fabricar?

Hola Dave, un abrazo.

Es un orgullo personas como tu.

Quiero comentarte que vivo en Mitú, Vaupés Colombia, es un lugar hermoso lleno de selva en el corazón de la amazónia.

Es un lugar apartado y sólo se puede llegar por avión, toda la comida la llevan en avión, pero nada de lo que se lleva se recicla o regresa, estamos creando una montaña de basura.

Luego de ver tus ideas y proyectos me enamore de la idea de hacerlo en Mitú, he tratado de buscar en Colombia quien hace las maquinas, pero no he encontrado a nadie,

Es posible comprarlas directamente con usted?

O tienen algún contacto para comprarla?

Mil gracias, gracias por lo que haces.

hi Dave , What do you think about what the first step is when you have a project idea to be able to launch yourself to execute it … that makes you throw into the water… 🙂
