Breyo [Free Form] Recycling System
Our objective is to reduce paper waste in landfills and bring recycling to a community based area where the user will be rewarded by recycling paper. By designing a product that will create other things from paper, we are keeping paper from building up in landfills and utilizing it in a different and environmentally friendly way.
This project won the Change The World contest. Our final solution is a machine that can turn paper into useful modular building material such as bricks and other simple shapes. The final interior design consisted of a steel frame, a compression system, a mold, and a water catching system. My main involvement was in building the piston system.
