Waste management

a. Plastic Recycling Arm:

The objective of this project is to build a product that recycles wasted plastic and utilize it to make new plastic products. The product combines three existing open source projects: the shredder and extruder of Precious Plastic, and the robotic arm of Evezor. Waste plastic is shredded into small flakes, which pass through the extruder that turns them into filaments. The filaments are adopted by the robotic arm to 3D print new plastic parts. Since the final product is a child of three different products, each of the three products may be used separately for their unique specialty.

Applications

The robotic arm can perform industrial tasks to the recycled plastic like 3D Printing, sorting, laser cutting, pick and place... This machine is ideal for having your own home plastic recycling facility.

Status of the product: Design is complete. Now prototyping.

b. Autonomous Kitchen Composter

This machine is an automated composter that turns your compostable food scraps into compost; which is a high-quality organic fertilizer that you can either use on your land or sell to farmers that need it. The smart composter has specific sensors that tell you (the user) what type of food you need to add to the bin to ensure the balance in the chemical elements of the natural process and get the best quality fertilizer. The disadvantage of the kitchen composter is that it cannot recycle all organic matter. It can take cardboard, paper, most food scraps, but cannot take acidic food wastes like Lemon, Oranges... The smart composter is aware of this and will only tell you what food to add.

Status of the product: Design is complete. Now prototyping.

c. Methane Composter

Unlike the kitchen composter, the methane composter can digest ANY type of organic matter, including human feces! This biodigester eats all your organic wastes and transforms it into three products: High-quality Fertilizer, Heat, and Methane gas. Fertilizer can be used on personal gardens or sold. Heat can be used to heat the water of the household or generate energy. Methane gas is an odorless, colorless, flameless gas that can be used in many ways; examples:

  • Cooking: can be directly hooked to your stove instead of propane gas.
  • Fuel: can be used to run an engine; making energy that can be used virtually anywhere.

Status of the product: Design is complete. Now prototyping.

Optimizing Consumption: Agriculture.

From our waste management, you can see, now, we have homemade resources for plastic recycling, high-quality plant fertilizer, heating systems, self-sustainable energy sources, and even a cooking stove. Does it make sense to start thinking about producing our own food?

These are the products that we are building to complement your home self-sufficiency; as: "You can solve all the world's problems in a garden." - Geoff Lawton:

a. Wi-Pots: Recycled Window Pots

These are affordable self-watering pots made from recycled plastic. They can grow your lettuces, greens, herbs... all year long with very minimal supervision.

Status: Ready and will be available to buy soon! - After we prototype the Plastic Recycling Arm.

b. EcoPot: Zero Waste Pots

With the combination of engineering, permaculture design and biointensive growing, we have produced sustainable and naturally smart zero-waste EcoPots. The EcoPots are isolated growing closets that come with temperature control, humidity control, own lighting system to mimic sunlight... EcoPots are naturally smart and will require minimal supervision or maintenance. They are self-watering and self-feeding making them the first ever zero-waste growing closet! In the EcoPot, you can control the climate of your growing room; making you able to grow plants of any climate around the Earth!

Status: Minimum Viable Product Designed and Prototyped; Currently designing a functional aesthetic model.

c. Shelter

The Shelter is an affordable and self-sufficient greenhouse that can used to grow big amounts of crops of different climates wherever you are around the world. We are working closely with engineers from Europe, United States, and Canada to design and built the Minimum Viable Product this Summer 2018 and this summer in Montreal, QC, Canada.
