Ultimately, “Precious Plastic” is a platform for people all around the world to collect, recycle, build and sell recycled plastic goods, The precious plastic open source project encourages anyone to get involved by developing machinery and business opportunities to buy and sell recycles plastics projects and of course this allows for a cleaner earth by collecting un-wanted plastic .
Crutchfield Engineering is to build and further develop the machine series, based on open source blueprints from the Precious Plastic to reduce plastic waste. Its purpose is to shred common plastic waste so that the shreds can be melted and extruded to create new products by anybody in the subsequent machine series. The main goals of the Precious Plastic project were to build the shredder at minimum cost and to develop an improved version after testing it. It was built using in-house machines at the workshop and is powered by a gearbox/motor that can be offered in versions. Minor modifications were made of the original designs to improve handling and assembling of the machine. The gearmotor and its electronics were also built on a separate platform to create a modularised unit that is easily detached if desired to be stored or shipped abroad.
