Repurposed Filament

Brands are using waste materials to create filaments for 3D-printing

Implications - 3D-printing, which is known for being a sustainable manufacturing process, continues to evolve with processes that reduce and reuse plastic waste. Recently, brands have started to use waste materials like ocean plastics and food scraps to fully integrate 3D-printing into the Circular Economy. These innovations highlight how brands are leveraging modern technology to mitigate the environmental impact of traditional manufacturing processes.
