An electric cargo trike concept by EOOS NEXT offers a solution to plastic waste. The trike is called the Zero-emission Utility Vehicle, or ZUV, and the chassis was 3D printed from plastic waste from supermarkets, New Atlas reports. The Austrian social enterprise/industrial design studio sought out to create an e-mobility concept with a chassis produced locally and economically. A research and design studio, Rotterdam’s The New Raw, took about 154 pounds of recycled plastic raw material and turned it into the chassis using industrial 3D-printing robots. However, EOOS NEXT added plastic rotational molding could be used.
