The Renewal Station: Turning Waste into Resources
Companies often discard various materials through recycling collections that are not necessarily recyclable . This leads to a missed opportunity to process and repurpose them using smaller-scale equipment. The materials that are discarded are not always viable for big recycle centers to breakdown or export out, but still have value on a granular level. By utilizing local resources and equipment, these materials can be broken down and either repurposed into sellable items or sold as raw materials.
Furthermore, as the waste generated by certain products, such as electronic goods, increases at a rate three times faster than the population growth, repurposing and selling materials becomes an even more viable business opportunity. Additionally, with advancements in technology such as 3D printing, it has become easier to repurpose materials into sellable items.
