Right machines in Kinshasa

Hello!

I’m writing a project for an NGO in Kinshasa. They want to recycle and transform plastic into products like paving stone.

I have two concerns about this proposal:
– Which type of machine are needed to make paving stone? Do you know the productivity (how many pieces per day)? And, how much can they expect to pay?
– In Kinshasa there are many power cuts. How can I overcome this problem?

Thanks in advance for your suggestions!

– Which type of machine are needed to make paving stone?

You need a plastic shredder, sand, and some sort of furnace to melt the plastic and pour the molten plastic into moulds. There are several videos about it on youtube:

– Do you know the productivity (how many pieces per day)?

Depends on your scalability, the type of machines you use, the amount of people helping you to make your product…

– And, how much can they expect to pay?

No idea, do market research

– In Kinshasa there are many power cuts. How can I overcome this problem?

Use a gas motor perhaps?

Look at shredded plastic as a filler on the bottom and a thin sand coat or colour on top.

Look on youtube to check out air crete. Tiny bubbles that means no sand so lighter but still strong with your ground plastic in the fill.

As far as how many well thats is determined by how many molds, machines or people you have, I think this is in your court.
