B:bot, Green Big
Engage consumer in recycling.
MATURITY LEVEL READY
DEVELOPED BY GREEN BIG
UX Design BY ELLA ROGER
B:bot is a made in France machine that collects, crushes and sorts plastic bottles into flakes ready for recycling, the flakes being collected to make new bottles.
The B:bot densifies the material of the bottles by transforming it, which optimizes transport and storage while reducing costs. For each bottle deposited, the consumer receives 1 to 2 cents that he can recover as a voucher or donate to an association.
B:bot is totally designed and manufactured in France with a storage capacity of 3000 bottles.

Deposit feedback for guidance
The ring indicates with colored lighting when the bottle can be inserted, supported by explaination on screen. A video is integrated into the screen to show the user what happens inside the machine.
Bottle inspection & sorting
The machine automatically analyse the bottle to determine if it can be recycled by the machine or not. The machine then sorts between transparent and colored bottles, turning the container on the appropriate side.
Provide visibility on the deposit act impact
The user can see it’s bottle transformed into flakes instantly.
The machine has a screen saver that displays the number of bottle recycled.
B:bot displays the number of recycled bottles as they are inserted along with the corresponding financial incentives. For each accepted bottle, the user accumulates points or cents.
At the end of the process, the user can choose on the touch screen to save the accumulated points on its loyalty card, print its ticket, or make a donation to an association.

Could this solution be transposed for other waste ?
What about generating our own recycled ressources at home ?
