Post consumer plastic packaging waste

Table 1

Mohsen Khierallah,Packaging manager & plastic champion at Nestle NEAR

CREATING VALUE THROUGH GENERATING DEMAND In an increasingly resource constrained world, we must focus on minimizing the impact we have on the environment, which for Nestlé includes the impact of product packaging material. 90% of all trash floating on the ocean's surface is plastic, there are 46,000 pieces of plastic per square mile, and 40% of all plastic produced is used for packaging. Plastic packaging plays an important role in safely delivering food and drinks to consumers. Unlike a lot of other plastic packaging, food and beverage packaging has strict requirements on what materials can be used, to protect the product and guarantee its quality. In order to ensure that there is sufficient food grade recycled plastic available to be re-used, we need to create a market for it. Plastic as a commodity is inexpensive and therefore has no value for waste operators, which consequently dictates the difficulty in creating a market for recycled plastics. The lowest plastic packaging recycling rate across our business is of plastic laminate pouches: flexible packaging materials consisting of two or more layers of different packaging materials, which in turn creates packaging ...

F43

Minh Man Nguyen, Adrien Rigobello

Fab City Grand Paris is proposing a workshop with the goal of fostering the structuring of ecosystems around technical objects in participants’ origin cities. How can design express our multi-layered society? How can it facilitate through creating new connections, spaces and things? Fab City Grand Paris is proposing a workshop with the goal of fostering the structuring of ecosystems around technical objects in participants’ origin cities. The participants are designing an artefact anchored within their cityscape and a strategy for collaboration and deployment. The artefacts form a common language between the cities. The specificity of each city network, and expertise of the participants, are generating a panel of morphologies for the artefact in becoming. How to engage, or even collaborate with it? Because it speaks of local politics, the object is a reflection of the social topography. The participants will be agents of change within their cityscapes. The whole workshop is designed as an initiator of this systemic thought.

Applying EcoDesign approach in service value offer of FabLabs, seeking for a sustainable systemic innovation

F55

FabLab U. de Chile, EcoDiseño.cl

In recent years, Fablabs have fostered the development of sustainable products where objects are seen as systems, considering in the creative process the complete life cycle of the product, from the collection of the material to its degradation. This is the case of the growing trend of designing with local biomaterials or remanufacturing waste. For this, methodologies such as “material driven design” are experienced. But to design a more sustainable future based on a production ecosystem in which Fablabs themselves are relevant actors, it becomes urgent to incorporate sustainability not only in products they impulse but also into the value offer of their services. In 2018-2019, supported by the local company Ecodiseño.cl, in FabLab U. Chile we apply EcoDesign methodology for this purpose. In this workshop we want to reflect on sustainability practices in FabLabs and transfer knowledge for the application of EcoDesign approach in the services value offer.

Human-Centeredness as a Fab Lab Value

F47

Johanna Okerlund, David Wilson

Learning to embrace digital fabrication as a social revolution as much as a technological one, we discuss embedding HCI and human-centeredness as values into everyday Fab Lab practice. As Fab Labs become increasingly ubiquitous, it is important to consider their impact. In their book Designing Reality, the Gershenfelds urge us to not only celebrate fabrication as the next digital revolution, but also realize that we need to shape the accompanying social revolution. Towards that agenda, we consider a proactive stance at a local level that consists of embracing human-centeredness as a primary digital fabrication value and shifting the focus of maker practices from technical to sociotechnical. Human-Computer Interaction and Human-Centered Design consist of methodologies and mindsets that are driven by a relentless desire to understand the deep and nuanced experiences of humans interacting with artifacts, systems, and other humans nested in social and political ecologies. In this working group, we will discuss opportunities and challenges for bringing HCI and human-centeredness to Fab Labs, discuss this value in relation to Designing Reality’s call to drive a social revolution, a...

Making Materials with Materiom

Table 1

Julia Hansen

Develop a biomaterial recipe using locally abundant ingredients with Materiom! Digital fabrication has the potential to drive sustainable human development but many of the materials used in testing, prototyping, and in final products are made of polluting plastics. Natural ecosystems have for eons produced, broken down and reused materials without polluting. Can we create materials for digital fabrication using nature’s intelligence? Materiom thinks so, and invites you to participate in a workshop to create a biomaterial using locally abundant biomass. We’ll take you through our methodology for producing the material recipe, forming molds, and together discuss how this recipe can be scaled up in the context of a circular economy in Egypt. This workshop will be followed up with the subsequent “Fabricating with Materiom” workshop.

Biomaterial Printing with Materiom

Table 3

Jose Tomas Dominguez

Digital fabrication has the potential to drive sustainable human development but many of the materials used in testing, prototyping, and in final products are made of polluting plastics. Natural ecosystems have for eons produced, broken down and reused materials without polluting. Can we create materials for digital fabrication using nature’s intelligence? Materiom thinks so, and invites you to participate in a workshop to test biomaterials with digital fabrication machines, including the laser cutter, CNC mill, and 3D printer. This workshop is a followup to “Making Materials with Materiom” and “Fabrication with Materiom”, and will teach the assistants how to build their own extruder to 3D print biomaterials, this extruder can be assembled in any open 3D printer. This will allow Fab Labs through all around the world use biomaterials in all their digital

Parametric algorithmic design has enhanced architect and designers skills in multiple fields. Stimulating parametric designers to follow experimental steps that bound their algorithms to defined constraints is the workshop core-value. Selecting an element then set its functional contraints is a challenging experience to evaluate utilitas of design results. Utilitas-Parametric is orienting parametricism to meet sustainable notions, as every design element should function. Hence, Mitigating wasted resources while meeting aesthetic spirit is a futuristic substantial pursue . Conforming Evolutionary designs for future generations that comply Vitruvius three-part rubric; Firmitas, Venustas and Utilitas is where future respects ancestors’ wisdom.

Design and construction of an indoor radio controlled blimp Blimps are relatively simple flying machines; they use a gas that is lighter than air, such as helium, in order to be able to float, while using motored propellers on a bottom structure to move forwards and backwards. By building your own blimp bag out of mylar, filling it with helium, and attaching it to a motorized bottom, you can construct your own relatively inexpensive indoor blimp. During the workshop the participants will develop different skills related to digital manufacturing. - Design, cut and weld with the laser cutter two layers of mylar or similar to forms the different volumes that will then be filled with helium - Prototyping a structure light enough to hold motors and electronics, and capable of directing both right and left as well as up and down the blimp. - Design and program an app to control the blimp Hosted by: Eduardo Chamorro Santiago Fuentemilla

Hands-on soft robotics

Table 2

Adriana Cabrera, Monserrat Ciges

We all assume that robots are sturdy appearing structures with stiff and bulky parts and that sometimes these can pose a risk if not adequately controlled. In comparison, soft robotics are structures created with flexible, body-friendly materials, usually controlled by air, that attempt to simulate the subtlety of the body's movements. Most applications of soft robotics are developed in the areas of medicine and food, and also in the exploration of extreme environments. Today this field is explored in fashion, design, and art as a source of inspiration. In this workshop, we will teach the basic principles of soft robotics, from the construction of a small inflatable to its electronic control. The goal is to understand how it works, how to make it with tools that are very easy to manipulate and have fun while making.

METHOD TO INCORPORATE DIGITAL MANUFACTURING PROCESSES TO CRAFTSMANSHIP

F53

Walter Gonzales Arnao

A look at the material culture produced with digital technology in the last decade. In recent years, new technologies are impacting not only the production processes, but also the aesthetic culture of artisans. The incorporation of digital technologies in Peruvian crafts is empirical to this day. On the other hand, craftsmanship uses a methodology for the integration of digital manufacturing processes, enhancing its impact on cultural values and the expressive power of its crafts. New technologies can be used to increase productivity and reduce costs for the production of handicrafts. These potential applications are focused on the study of high-performance artisanal production processes, processed in the Digital Design Laboratory and industrial engineering.
