Precious Plastic Monash University
In early 2018, a few engineering students at Monash University came across Dave Hakkens and his creation of Precious Plastic. These students then created Precious Plastic Monash. With a desire to engage and educate the wider community, the necessity for more portable machines was born. Therefore, the development of the integration unit begun. Dave Hakkens created four machines with the different needs to recycle plastic in small scale and efficiently. His original designs had the machines in a 40 foot shipping container. For the needs of Precious Plastic Monash, this would not suffice. Therefore, 40 engineering and design students created the Integration Unit.
