Converting plastic and fabric waste into floor tiles using Solar Power

A 40-foot shipping container platform holds a complete mobile waste recycling plant capable of upcycling plastic and fabric waste into architectural tiles.

Dealing with recyclable materials in the developed world, which often has a recycling infrastructure in place, isn’t nearly as difficult as dealing with waste in off-grid and remote areas, where plastic and other waste materials would require costly hauling to a location with recycling facilities. But a new device from Miniwiz, a company which focuses on “turning post-consumer waste into high performance materials,” could be one solution for not only handling recyclable waste items in isolated communities, but also for upcycling plastic and fiber waste into architectural tiles, or converting it into raw materials for further manufacturing processes.
