Platform MAKE. initiated and facilitated the building process of a shredder, injection molding and extrusion machine with a dozen art and design students during the Wintersession in 2018. Since then these machines have been used in educational projects and workshops creating awareness for the reuse and up-cycling of valuable plastic materials. Dedicated students and workshop technicians have been involved to create and upgrade this self-made recycling factory.
