Using Precious Plastic as a project for technology students (college or)

I teach at a technology college in eastern PA ( ) in a program that is called “electro-mechanical” technology. It occurs to me that this project would be of great value and personal interest to my millennial students.

I have many questions:
What is the budget for each machine?
Do you have organizations in the USA that have built everything?
Are any organizations similar to my college?
Time estimate of build?

Please reply if you have any opinions, thoughts, or experiences for me.




Did you ever start the project at your school? I would be very interested in doing the same for our school. Thanks!
