From ponds to garbage dumps, shopping streets to residential areas, plastic is everywhere. The students behind Precious Plastic Maastricht see it not as waste, but as a raw material. These enterprising students are building a workshop full of machines that transform plastic into brand new products, such as materials for 3D printers, rubbish bins and beams. This is your chance to contribute to a clean and sustainable world!

About project team Precious Plastic

Stichting Precious Plastic Maastricht is a student led initiative, established in February 2019, tackling both plastic over-consumption and waste in Maastricht. ''Although we are a newly established foundation, we have successfully integrated ourselves with the local community, and are beginning to see the results of our work. Our goal is to provide a local upcycling opportunity. To achieve this, we are building machines based on Dave Hakkens’ designs, which allow us to upcycle plastic waste into durable products. Alongside this, we are working with local initiatives to raise awareness and educate our citizens on the issue that is plastic waste.'' (Photo: Harry Heuts / UM)
