  • Alex, looks great. I like how you optimized for maximum burgerflow. Seriously though, if this thing takes off, I hope LinkCycle makes its way to the Silicon Valley. Lots of opportunity out here. James

  • One of the issues the team must address early is how to compare different processes for achieving a particular end result. When these process steps consume different resources, have different waste products and are done in various locations an absolute comparison becomes very difficult. For industrial products a complex answer might be OK. For consumer products, one needs an index that is very easy to understand. The famous problem is cloth vs. paper diapers. As far as I know, a definitive comparison of environmental impact has never been done.

  • Please let me know if you are looking for a partner to test your system - I am currently starting up a manufacturing process in S. China. Also, are you familiar with, an MIT spin-off? Maybe there could be some synergy?

  • S. Sahani: I like your idea and would like to help you out. I'm a 1992 graduate of the Sloan School and now work in consumer electronics. Are you seeking investors, business leads and a web developer? What else can you tell me about your team and your goals. Best regards Andrew Klein Wesport, CT
