Charlie Crook (Future Industries)
Entrepreneur: Charlie Crook
Business: Future Industries
Future Industries has designed and prototyped a small-scale unit for recycling plastic. The device means a person can bring plastic waste material (for example, milk cartons) and, using this unit, process the material and turn it into new and reusable products whilst they wait.
The Future Industries recycling unit
So far Future Industries has successfully made bowls and Frisbee’s from milk cartons. In simplified terms Future Industries have condensed an industrial scale recycling plant into a single unit; in turn reducing the carbon footprint created by collecting, processing and then selling recycled material to then be turned into new products. By doing this, the individual is able to see the full process first hand and see how their waste material can be reused if recycled.
