HELP TURN PLASTIC RUBBISH INTO INCOME FOR POOR FOLK
The Western World exports its accumulated waste to Asia & Africa.
Governments are under pressure to facilitate effective recycling
Big consortiums are scrambling to institute their own Technology.
Unfortunately, it’s countries which lack sophisticated waste management who are the biggest polluters.
WHAT WILL MOTIVATE POOR FOLK TO COLLECT DISCARDED WASTE?????-
GIVE IT VALUE.
The unavoidable necessity of clean drinking water provides an economic charade for recycling plastic.
Massively subsidised Multinational Recyclers pay to purchase used water bottles. However, their rationale is that other plastic waste has low or negative value.
Our Global community has not answered the pollution issue. - Management of Stockpiled or buried plastic is secondary to the reclamation of Third World's DISCARDED waste.
PLASTIC SOLVER owns the intellectual property rights to THE PIGGY, a machine which shreds plastic to make small "straw" bales. Plazbalez only weigh 2 kilograms.
Piggy is lightweight & easily towed by motor scooters, even loaded with 100 bales.
When its fitted to small flat-bottomed boats Piggy can access storm drains to estuaries for harvest.
Plastic, being very light & voluminous presents major problems to gatherers - it necessitates sufficient centralised space for amassing vast volumes - & Transportation of unwieldly loads is uneconomical. PIGGY condenses great volumes into small spaces.
Plazbalez can be traded or sold & are cheaply transportable. Used as a building material Plazbalez are stored to become "money in the Bank". Against heat, cold & sound Plastic is an extremely efficient insulator. Because It doesn’t decompose & isn’t subject to infestation the bales can be used as infill for conventional building procedures, or as independent structure. Away from air & sunlight & sheathed inside the skin of concrete, plastic doesn't degenerate into dangerous micro-particles.
Industry deems several types of Plastic as unrecyclable. PIGGY processes all plastic.
Plastic “Strawbale” construction is an affordable means to grow infrastructure in impoverished communities.
As a tradable item or as building material plastic will quickly gain enough value to encourage its retention & its collection.
WE SEEK FUNDS TO FASHION OUR PROTOTYPE INTO A HIGH PRODUCTION UNIT,
TO ERECT A DEMONSTRATION BUILDING STRUCTURE
& TO INCORPORATE A BODY TO MARKET & ASSIST PURCHASES OF THE MACHINE.
PLASTIC DEBRIS litters highways. Driven by wind it accumulates in rice paddies & woodlands. When sluiced down gutters it concentrates into waterways. PIGGY's similar coupling to that used by Cambodian Remorque Tuk-Tuks is easy to attach to motor bikes. It keeps them upright for traversing sandy, muddy or uneven ground.
Fitted to small flat-bottomed dinghys, plastic can be harvested from flooded farmland, swamps & estuaries .... before it makes its way to the sea.
Low power consumption keeps it budgetable for the poorest folk, & the machine's purchase price is aimed to be less than that of a 2nd hand motorbike.
STRAWBALE STRUCTURES have proved their worth as Thermal & Ecoustical insulators over centuries. Recent governments in Australia, U.S. & U.K. have instituted their use in housing developments. Although cheap & easy to erect bales have been ignored in Asia. Organic material rots, can be ravaged by termites & infested by rat & insects. PlazBalez remove these negatives.
Partially funded FISHING & AGRICULTURAL CO-OPERATIVES can facilitate loans for folk to purchase PIGGYs.
Many types of plastic have an asured value. Considerable savings in using PIGGY will "value add". PlazBalez will quickly become a COMMODITY." TRADING POSTS" can be established encourage these trends. Accumulating PlazBalez is a investment option. Trading Posts can eventually facilitate loans & can value stockpiles & structures as Assets.
There are already many Organisations which monitor the accretions of Plastic debris. They will be encouraged to supply up to date information to Trading Posts.
Although at this time the term "Peak Oil" has slipped from headlines, more perceptive folk will see stockpiled plastic as a resource which is fast becoming more valuable every day.
WE WILL OPERATE THROUGHOUT ASIA & AFRICA
