REQUISITES + SEMI-FINISHED PRODUCTS – MICRO URBAN MINING
Micro Urban Mining is a form of small-scale metal extraction by individuals. A future-design-scenario, which odes to forgotten (natural) metals. Micro Urban Mining is a system based on existing processes that can be transformed into a new vision on how to deal with E-waste.
This is a presentation of the low-tech requisites the Urban Miner needs for the Urban Mining process. These are all homemade, with meager resources. The oven for example is made out of an old trashcan poured with concrete. Crafts work like this are in line with the self-sustaining approach of the Urban Miner.
