This platform is a tool which is open to all and aims to fight against plastic pollution by making technical knowledge, on the recycling and recovery of plastic waste, available.
Plastic Odyssey is a recycling laboratory which experiments and develops new ways of recovering plastic waste.
We design technologies that are intended to be replicated and adapted around the world, to create recycling channels where they do not yet exist. Alongside the machines, we document and disseminate existing economic models and support entrepreneurs to develop new ones. These economic models are adapted to each region of the globe.
“Transforming plastic waste into new useful objects to meet a local need and creating a viable economic sector using accessible tools”
Disseminate plans for recycling machines and technical knowledge on plastic waste
Share economic models based on the recovery of plastic waste
Connect a global ecosystem of local recycling players
They can be built and repaired using standard parts and tools. Construction can be done locally and inexpensively.
The plans are made available free of charge and patent-free to maximize their replication and therefore impact.
They are intended to create local and decentralized sectors, as close as possible to the waste sources.
To give waste a second life, several steps are necessary: Plastic Odyssey is working on a set of technologies for each of these steps. Inspired by what already exists on the ground, these technologies aim to be replicated in regions lacking waste management infrastructure.
