Shredderbot is designed to be inserted into waste stream of industrial and institutional processes by transforming the use and value of a waste material.
Andy Mosedale’s Shredderbot 2.0 is the latest prototype for an inexpensive, durable, reliable plastics shredder. With its compact, efficient design, Shredderbot is perfect for both industrial and consumer needs. Shredderbot’s ability to efficiently break down plastics has innumerable applications, as the shredded plastic Shredderbot produces has innumerable uses and applications. To name a few:
The plastic may be used in additive manufacturing processes (injection molding / 3D printing)
It may serve as media substrate for biological plant growth in both homes and labs
Resin used to fix road erosion by acting as a binding site medium for filler particulates
Added efficiency in recycling process at municipal level
In addition, Shredderbot may also serve several household uses. The first and most obvious application is that it would reduce the volume, and thus the necessary storage space, of plastic waste in the home. However, Shredderbot could also be reformed with existing technologies to allow consumers to fabricate products from the shredded plastic in their own home. Essentially, the consumer would be able to use the products from the Shredderbot as material for in-home 3D printing. The volume of most plastic containers today is comprised of 95% air within the plastic shell, and Shredderbot’s designed purpose is to reduce that volume 60 to 75% by easily and efficiently shredding the plastic material. The potential consumer and industrial value of this technology—especially given the target price point—is quite high given the numerous applications. A Shredderbot in the home reduces necessary storage space of recyclable materials, and 3D printing technology becomes more apparent in day to day households the raw material output from Shredderbot can be reformed with home technologies to fabricate objects at home. A Shredderbot at the municipal level could save an inestimable amount in money and energy for recycling processes. Shredderbot has already come a long way since its first iteration, and the next step of the process is further research and development in order to refine its design and ensure greater reliability and efficiency.
MIS is an integrated business,
which supports cloud computing, infrastructure and technical business planning, I am involved with computer hardware/software project management, network appliance integration, computer peripheral maintenance and I have been fortunate to collaborate on multiple technically diverse projects, and am versed in consulting technological translation.
From fabricating low voltage autonomous gas analysis systems in remote environments, to retrofitting a bicycle with model rocket engines, I focus on creating things that are both useful, eye opening and fun. As deconstructs old technology and forms it into useful creative things. I have variety of cascading ideas in the design schedule most currently a waste plastic bottle shredder: #shredderbot. At MISmakers we investigate new and current technologies regarding software control, remote connectivity and innovation. My interest in innovation is not only about the product but also a process that is a springboard into new ideas and trends that propels learning, and fosters entrepreneurship.
Mosedale Integrated Solutions has a broad range of technical experiences acquired over 15+ years as a professional in construction, rural/remote outside fieldwork, boardroom meetings and project planning, Andy Mosedale supported it all.
We have a true passion for closing the loop.
Mosedale Integrated Solutions is a sole proprietary Limited Liable Corporation (LLC). Andy Mosedale the Chief Technological Officer performs all operational, management, and administrative task. That being said, a solid team has been assembled in both direct and indirect involvement. As Mosedale Integrated Solutions/Shredderbot expands, a dedicated team needs to be assemble working in specific sectors as experts to propel and carry forward the excellence that MIS, MISmakers and Shredderbot embodies.
Andy Mosedale is the Inventor of Shredderbot, a device designed to reduce plastic and paper bulky waste. Large amounts of this end up in our landfills, the shipping and transport of this by-product can cost exorbitant amounts. Consumers and mid-size industrial and institutional entities shoulder much of this monetary burden. Their increased carbon foot prints are indirectly related to the diesel fuel consumption of the movement and handling of bulky waste.
Current Waste Stream Concept:
WASTE -> Human labor sorting and managing -> TRASH HAULER Pickup -> Redistributed for Disposal or end Market Resale
(Time intensive with high costs) (Carbon Footprint costs) (Carbon footprint costs with some materials recycled)
Shredderbot Waste Stream Intercept:
WASTE -> Shredderbot processing -> Shredderbot output for on site use/resale (producer to direct to recycler buyer)
(Less time low costs) (Reduce frequency of hauling - reduced carbon foot print - waste producers gain of byproduct)
These are conceptualized flow charts but the scale of the #Shredderbot intercept can be applied to a retail small business environment as well as a larger institutional facility (Hospitals and Schools). Currently, Vermont Volume Reduction (www.vtvr.io) is heading up these initial efforts to disrupt this wastes stream
Mosedale is the also the Founder of Mosedale Integrated Solutions, an integrated business which supports cloud computing, infrastructure and technical business planning, computer hardware/software project management, network appliance integration, computer peripheral maintenance and has collaborated on multiple technically diverse projects, and is versed in consulting technological translation.
From fabricating low voltage autonomous gas analysis systems in remote environments, to retrofitting a bicycle with model rocket engines, the focus is on creating things that are both innovative, eye opening and fun. MIS deconstructs old technology and forms it into useful creative innovations. There is always a variety of cascading ideas in the design pipeline. Currently the emphasis is on may things:
- medical devise prototype
- Wood and metal up-cycling art and luminaries
- #Shredderbot devises (Slicerbot) for volume reduction and waste diversion
At MISmakers we investigate new and current technologies regarding software control, remote connectivity and innovation. My interest in innovation is not only about the product but also a process that is a springboard into new ideas and trends that propels learning, and fosters entrepreneurship.
