However it’s been on hold for a while because of his other project: Phonebloks. In order to get Precious Plastic going he put a request online asking for a machine builder to help. Kees replied and the project rebooted. The development started again, some other great people joined the project as well, and everyone contributed their expertise. After working 2 years on it, it's ready for the world. A solid version of machines, instructional videos, and blueprints shared open-source for free. A complete package that enables people to start recycling.
