Hi @davehakkens, in regards to the extruded PP/PE beam, do you keep a record of the volume of shredded plastic flakes you used? Of the shredded PP or PE flakes used, do you keep a record of the number of objects shredded to create your supply (i.e. number of bottle caps, containers shredded)?
Does anyone else keep a record of the volume of shredded plastic flakes they use to create their objects?
Rather than volume, you can simply work it out by the weight. Knowing the density of the particular plastic and the dimensions of the beam, you can calculate it’s weight and divide that by the weight of a single bottle cap etc.
