A solar powered machine that recycles waste into tiles

IMG_1069

This Trashpresso machine holds a complete mobile waste recycling plant capable of upcycling plastic and fabric waste into architectural tiles. A key element is the solar panels on its exterior, which means that it doesn’t require access to the grid or a generator to produce enough electricity for the waste upcycling processes. Another is its size that allows it to be moved nearly anywhere a tractor trailer can reach, including remote locations. https://www.treehugger.com/sustainable-product-design/solar-powered-trashpresso-converts-plastic-and-fabric-waste-floor-tiles.html

A solar powered boat in the Amazon

This new boat will be used by the Achuar people within their territory of Ecuador and Peru which remains roadless and pristine. Walking and canoes that use gasoline are the main means of transportation for the Achuar. But their territory has a vast network of rivers and tributaries, and plenty of sun, meaning that an environmentally-friendly alternative to the gas boats – which do not reflect the Achuar’s commitment to protect their rainforest home – is now possible. https://www.pachamama.org/news/the-achuar-will-have-a-network-of-boats-and-solar-recharge-stations-in-their-rivers
