Dear SPE,

We are looking for engineering consultants or other qualified individuals to help us design and build a plastic extruder. We are considering a low-cost device for producing sheet profiles for greenhouse applications, for the purpose of growing food year-round in developing world scenarios. Our materials of choice include UV-stabilized polyethylene, polycarbonate, PVF, and possibly cellophane.

We are beginning this project with the aim of producing a replicable, open source device for small enterprise incubation. Please provide references of consultants and others who are qualified to help us in the required technical developments, or others who can help us identify said individuals.

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Marcin Jakubowski, Ph.D. Open Source Ecology
