Peter Lewis, New Zealand-based inventor and engineer, invented a portable plastic recycler that transforms old plastic into bricks. These bricks are capable of serving as housing foundation.
Lewis teamed up with ByFusion in order to offer a cheap and portable plastic recycler available for everyone.
“Every year millions of tons of plastic ends up in the ocean and we have a technology platform that can process it in an environmentally-sensitive way and put it to use in local communities,” says Gregor Gomory, CEO of ByFusion.
Inventions like this one that work on reusing plastic on a local level are vital to keep the environment clean and green!
ByFusion has teamed up with Sustainable Coastlines Hawaii to clean up the state;
“The first SCH-ByFusion joint project will focus on the plastic accumulating across all of the Hawaiian Islands… This is an incredibly important area both for Hawaiians and for the world, with extensive coral reefs that are home to over 7,000 marine species, one quarter of which are found only in the Hawaiian Archipelago,” says Kahi Pacarr, Executive Director of Sustainable Coastlines Hawaii.
The plastic bricks are created with a “nearly 100-percent carbon neutral, non-toxic manufacturing process.”
