💎 Idea

ReFilamer's team develops machines that can produce raw materials for 3D printing from plastic waste. We want to build a strong community committed to the environment, so we want to launch the ReFilamer for Sustainable Tourism project.

Tripful is a social app targeting Gen Z women travellers to help them connect with each other and do an activity at the destination they both are.


Based on satellite images, the project aims to create a hiking planner in cooperation with Tripful app that can plan a hiking trail into nature, touching areas heavily contaminated with plastic waste. Hikers can collect plastic waste while completing the route, which they can dispose of at the nearest ReFilamer recycling machine. After the plastic waste is delivered, both the hiker and the machine owner will be rewarded.


🛰️ EU space technologies

On May 9, 2022, an article circulated in the press that plastic waste was being detected on satellite images using AI.
The ReFilamer for Sustainable Tourism project wants to use this technology and ESA data to locate contaminated sites.


🏖️ (Re)Visit Europe

We solve the challenge of exploring nature with care by automating the hiking route planning and basing tourism on waste recycling.
