Precious Plastic is an open hardware plastic recycling project and is a type of open source digital commons project. The project was started in 2013 by Dave Hakkens and is now in its fourth iteration (version), with people working on the project remotely or on site in the Netherlands. It relies on a series of machines and tools which grind, melt, and inject recycled plastic, allowing for the creation of new products out of recycled plastic on a small scale, "with the idea that anyone, anywhere in the world, can set up their own miniature recycling company. " The project is composed of more than 40,000 people in over 400 work spaces. All the information produced by the project such as codes, drawings and source materials are available for free online under the Creative Commons Attribution - Share Alike International 4. 0 license. The Precious Plastic version 4, which now includes business models and starter kits for creating recycling systems, was announced in January, 2020.
