The UWA hotpress is not exactly in action yet – lacking the electrical work and some minor tweaking – but enough is there to see what changes Derek Goad has made to Darko’s original design. Take a look specifically at the counterweight that allows the press to open like a clamshell and, especially, the way Derek slides the bottom plate in and out (guides are not yet fitted). With two bottom plates – one on each side – this would be one way of streamlining operations. Derek is speaking with Ross Rynehart who has lived part-time for many years in a tiny village in eastern Bali. The village is suffering from a severe plastic waste problem that is killing off some of the animals who ingest the plastic bags and frustrating tourism. We are in the early stages of exploring a local Waste for Life project with Ross.
