Plastic shredding is critical for waste reclamation and reuse. Traditional shredding and pelletizing systems require grid-tie electricity, and are bulky and expensive. Transporting waste from collection points to a centralized facility is uneconomical.
LightManufacturing is working to develop field-deployable Solar Shredders. We are working to create photo-voltaic powered, lightweight systems optimized for remote locations and smaller waste sources: beach waste, rural landfills, river waste, and beyond. The goal is to shred waste where it is collected, providing feed-stock for our SRM molding systems and other recycling technologies.
When combined with our Solar Rotational Molding systems, Solar Shredders will offer complete local manufacturing, local recycling solution, with local employment and circular-economy benefits.
