New machine on ISS will turn trash into “ink” for 3D printers | Futurism 

California startup Made in Space is launching a special machine that turns plastic waste and trash into feedstock for the company’s 3D printer already on board the station.  The recycling machine is meant to “facilitate the reusability of materials to solve new problems as they arise whether on the International Space Station or in future manned space exploration missions.” It could also help “reduce the cost and weight of payloads carried from Earth.”
