The bicycle is made from recycled plastic. There are no shock absorbers and the bicycle is without weldings. It does not rust and it does not have paint.

Sustainable Bicycle: Who Created This Recycled Plastic Bicycle?

This sustainable bicycle made from recycles plastic is an idea from Mr. Juan Muzzi, originally from Uruguay, and now settled in Brazil. Mr. Muzzi is a graduate in engineering and fine Arts. After his study, he found himself more interested in his creative side.
Mr. Muzzi found the idea of the circular economy very interesting. This led to the creation of this sustainable bicycle made from recycled plastic and as a result the company; Muzzicycles.

Recycled plastic bicycles. What is recycling and why it is important?
Recycling is very important as waste has a huge negative impact on the natural environment. Harmful chemicals and greenhouse gasses are released from rubbish in landfill sites. Recycling helps to reduce the pollution caused by waste. Habitat destruction and global warming are some the effects caused by deforestation.

Sustainable Bicycle Is Made From Recycled Plastic. How is the bicycle made?

The plastic waste is crushed until it become small grains. Then the grains are heated till they get liquid. An additive is added to give the material more strength. Then the liquid is deposited in an injection machine which – under high pressure – sprays the liquid in a molt. Less than 4 minutes later the frame of the recycle plastic bicycle is ready.
Muzzicycles gives a lifetime warranty for its bicycles. The bicycle cost around $ 700,00 or € 610,00

Sustainable Bicycles And The Next Step: The Rubber Chain

What is rubber made from?
Although there are something like 200 plants in the world that produce latex, over 99 percent of the world's natural rubber is made from the latex that comes from a tree species called Hevea brasiliensis, widely known as the rubber tree

Mr. Muzzi’s next goal is to develop a rubber chain so users can easily bike on the beach without having trouble with their chain and gear and cog-wheels. Have a nice ride!

'Goodmorning',

Nice to read you like the idea. With all the plastic waste and new recycling techniques, it would be great to extend this process to other countries. Cycling is more popular than ever, so surely you have a chance to succeed. You even could think to make them electric with customized conversion kits like https://www.whatsorb.com/transportation/this-kit-converts-your-favorite-bike-into-an-electric-bike-in-10-minutes or https://www.whatsorb.com/transportation/the-12-best-electric-bike-conversion-kits-in-2020.

Please contact http://www.muzzicycles.com.br/muzzicycles-English/ for more in detail info.

Succes with your enterprise.

Kind regards,
