A group of scientists and researchers led by chemist Matthew Hartings over at American University in Washington DC has developed an exceptionally high-tech 3D printer plastic material, designed to be completely compatible with commercial 3D printers, that will make it easier than ever to carry out 3D printing projects in a manner that isn't hazardous to the environment in any way.

The 3D printer plastic was crafted together by mixing nanoparticles of titanium dioxide with conventional liquified ABS thermoplastic. This titanium dioxide substance is known for being able to break down pollutants as part of a reaction with natural light. What's great about the material is that it doesn't make 3D printing processes more difficult in any way.

Ultimately, this pollution-preventing 3D printer plastic will make it possible to carry out fully eco-friendly printing projects.
