June 2017:
Today we have built the shredder and did a test run. A couple of things still to be tweaked, but overall we managed to get our first batch of shredded plastic.

Thanks to @davehakkens and the team for making this possible.

We would be happy to help anyone who is planning to start building the machines soon with some before-assembly advice.

@jegor-m your team have done an amazing work! I hope the mechanical engineering department of our university would success also we are currently building each of the precious plastic machine! By the way, in your compression machine how long did the baking time took in order to fully melt the plastic?

@izonargienel, the melting time is usually 45-55 minutes.

Meanwhile, the life goes on. We’ve been making some of the wall clocks in the background and selling them on the Bazaar and through local channels. Currently the business model looks like – sell as many wall clocks as possible. At the current production rate, we barely cover the monthly garage rent. A switch towards workshop based activities is required and also developing local group of volunteers is a must. Machine development is somewhat frozen at the moment to maximize the production.
If you have any tips about the workshops, give us a shout!

(resource efficiency will help us become type 1 civilization 🙂 )
