ReGen-3D is an Enactus QMUL project that aims to tackle the prominent and widespread issue of waste plastics. As we are well aware, the magnitude of plastic waste which we produce is having a dire impact on the environment. Any way in which we can reduce the amount of plastic we waste is therefore a good thing. The ReGen-3D team utilise used plastic’s recyclable and reusable properties to turn it into filaments for 3D-printing.
Our mission is to reduce plastic waste on campus and in the surrounding Tower Hamlets area. Furthermore, we will be helping to reduce unemployment in the area, by providing sustainable filament creation training to help people in need of work experience. Beyond this, to create economic impact, the filaments created can be sold to customers such as universities and companies in the area.
