Perpetual Plastic Project

Interactive recycling installation for events

The Perpetual Plastic Project is an interactive recycling installation for young and old where plastic waste is recycled on the spot into new products by 3D-printers. The installation can be booked for events, festivals or other occasions. It gets visitors involved and educated about the value of recycling of plastic waste. The fun and hands-on – learning by doing – experience is what makes the Perpetual Plastic Project stand out on every event.

Let's get to work

We believe in learning by doing. By working with the machine people learn in a fun way about plastics and recycling. Kids, students, business men and grandparents, we have worked with every target group and all are fascinated by the hands-on recycle process.

Several extension options are available to create a custom experience for your event.
