Plastic waste causes huge problems around the world, for both men and nature. By using waste plastic as building material for our 3D printers vanPlestik is enabling the local reuse of plastic waste.

In the Netherlands we can transform plastic waste into unique, high-quality and affordable plastic objects like furniture or custom made parts for the local industry.

Worldwide we want to reduce the global plastic waste problem by enabling and creating local industries. Many places in the developing world don’t have access to conventional recycling facilities. With our 3D-printers we will be able to close the plastic loop on a local level. This will create new businesses that are able to produce valuable objects and at the same time keep the waste plastic from ending up in nature.
