3D-printing for saving the environment

Posted on Updated on

As reported by Professor Paul Gatenholm, who has led this research through the Wallenberg Wood Science Centre at Chalmers, “This is a breakthrough in manufacturing technology. It allows us to move beyond the limits of nature, to create new sustainable, green products. It means that those products which today are already forest-based can now be 3D printed, in a much shorter time. And the metals and plastics currently used in 3D printing can be replaced with a renewable, sustainable alternative.”
