Abstract
The proposed Phase I feasibility study examines the possibility of developing a full-mobile extrusion plant capable of manufacturing structural thermoplastic composite lumber (TCL) and plastic piping. Novel concepts to enable the modification of existing equipment into a manufacturing system on skids have been proposed. The intent of such a system is to enable the manufacture of TCL construction materials in exact sizes and quantities as the need arises, on-site using local battlefield debris materials as feedstock as appropriate. Each component of traditional manufacturing system for piping and TCL will be modified using innovative ideas to make it fully-portable and quick assembly for on-site manufacture.
