Plasplus is an ongoing project looking into artisanal small-batch plastic recycling in
urban high-density areas. It is highly inspired by work done by Precious Plastic.

Plasplus aims to reimagine plastic as a precious and artisanal material that is reclaimed from urban waste streams. The name is a play on the suffix “++”, often used in computer science to denote a new version (as in C++). Plasplus is currently still in the research and development phase. We are hoping to launch a few products using 100% recycled plastic by the end of 2021.

In the process, we have built our own hydraulic press, PID-controlled oven, and several aluminium and steel molds.

Plasplus started as a sparkpluck project and is currently being pursued on my own. I am working with local plastic recycling partners to co-create a product. Watch this space!
