A "micro factory" that creates building materials from rubbish
A micro factory is a series of modules that can take a variety of different waste materials and transform them into a new product. Textiles for example can be combined with glass in the micro factory to be converted into hard green ceramics.The ideal location for these micro factories is where the waste is being collected so you can have communities able to access them and turn their own waste into a resource, a small-scale industry.https://www.abc.net.au/austory/the-tipping-point/13164736
