Millennium Fellowship Project: Rewind Plastic

Plastic disposal has always been a challenge for mankind. Due to the colossal quantity of non-degradable plastic on earth, it is impossible to completely evade plastic. So the only practical solution is to recycle plastic. To propagate this idea, we are in the initial implementation phase of the project which on completion will be the first on-campus plastic recycling unit in Kerala, India. The plastic collection will occur from within the college as well as the surroundings. This will be sent to the collection point of the unit and sorted. We are currently focusing on building 3 basic machines:
1. Shredder: The Shredder whacks plastic items into small flakes.
2. Extrusion: Extrusion is a continuous process where plastic flakes are inserted into the hopper and extruded into a line of plastic. Could be moulded into products.
3. Sheetpress: The Sheetpress presses shredded plastic into recycled sheets using a hydraulic press, recycling around 20 kg of plastic per sheet.

As the quote says “Baby steps lead to giant strides”, we believe this initiative from our part could inspire more people, especially students, to reflect upon their social responsibility and collectively make the earth a better place to live.
