My suggestion to the process
Hola a todos/ Hello to everybody
I´m from Mazatlan, Mexico. I´m 16 years old and lately I have been working in my own project. It´s about cigarette butts or the cigarette filters, (I dont know if the name is correct in English, here we called it “colillas”, it´s the last part of the cigarette that you throw away when you finish it) as I searched on Internet, cigarette butts are the top waste in the World, even more than plastic. So that´s why I´m making a social-project campaign, I designed a new type of containers which are more attractive to the people than the conventional ones. But I don´t want to expose my project here jaja. The thing is that, after we collect all the filters, we were thinking about what to do with them, we want to come up with an idea, to recycle them or reuse them.
So I talked with a expert on chemistry and gave the idea to fill the plastic molds with a few (previously washed) cigarette butts, so for example instead of using, I don´t know 10 liters of plastic to fill the mold, you only use 8. With this you can be recycling plastic but also the toxic cigarette butts.
MY INTENTION IS TO KNOW WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THIS IDEA.
¿IS THIS POSIBLE?
¿DOES IT AFFECT THE PRODUCING PROCESS?
By the way, I´m amazed by this project, it´s such a great idea, congratulations to Dave, maybe it´s the start of a giant project, and I´m looking forward to build my own machine, and if it´s possible maybe add the cigarette filters.
Anyway thank you for your attention.
Un saludo a todos los compañeros latinos!
