Transcript of LifeCycle of Lego Bricks

Pre- Manufacture
The plastic granules that make up a lego brick are made of acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS)
These granules are stored in massive silos, which are connected by tubes to the manufacturing factory
Machines produce about 60 Tons of this ABS material every 24 hours
Product Manufacturing
After granules are stored, they are pumped to the completely autonomous production machines
These machines heat the granules to 230-310 C*
After heating, the material is pressurized into molds
Takes about 10 seconds to cool and processed
The molded pieces are then categorized by a robot that collects the pieces
Packaging and Delivery
After processing and optional decoration, the pieces are sorted into seprate silos for each individual block
These silos are connected to the packaging process, where specific peices are combined into sets, packaged, and shipped out to Lego and toy stores.
Legos are a child's building toy, and are often themed to popular children's tv shows, movies, etc.
Lego Star Wars
Lego Indiana Jones
Lego Halo

Lego blocks are completely made of plastic, so they are 100% recyclable
