Circular Economy Manufacturing has designed a portable recycling microfactory that fits within a used shipping container. This microfactory is designed around using solar-power panels on the roof of the container to charge an array of battery storage devices which power a molding machine. This cycle is entirely waste-free and does not release harmful toxins into the environment.
The portable microfactory features transparent walls, which makes it quite an interesting spectacle for viewers to analyze the entire process, from melting plastics to molding items. It is important to note that this microfactory is still in the prototype design stage, and is not ready for mass production as of yet. When the R&D designers do finalize this microfactory, it will be a purely beneficial innovation.
