According to John Hart and Sebastian Pattinson, a former postdoc in mechanical engineering who is now a lecturer at the University of Cambridge in the U.K., “demonstrated a technique using the world’s most abundant natural polymer-cellulose. at MIT,” says early education on 3-D printing is the key to helping the technology expand as an industry. They are very much enjoyed creating and teaching the course and they are proud of what the students did, and what it means about the future potential of additive manufacturing.
Cellulose offers many advantages over current plastics-based feedstocks: It’s inexpensive, renewable, biodegradable, mechanically robust, and chemically versatile. In addition, it’s widely used in pharmaceuticals, packaging, clothing, and a variety of other products, many of which could be customized using 3-D printing”.
For so many decades we couldn’t find the identification of colony collapse disorder, a phenomenon marked by widespread loss of honey bee colonies, researchers are continuously working to solve the ecologically complex problem of how to mitigate ongoing losses of honey bees and other pollinating species. We need to track specific impacts on bee health. It could be carefully controlled and kept pesticide free.
3D printed honeycomb is based on food grade material.
According to Researchers at the Carl R. Woese Institute for Genomic Biology at the University of Illinois and J Group Robotics,” used specially developed 3D-printed plastic honeycombs that mimic the hive environment, in order to monitor queen egg-laying behaviors. They develop a complete Automated Bee Hive to extract honey in the purest form. The entire beehive is nature-friendly as well as using the latest Robotics, 3D Printing & Production friendly mechanism. The Robotic Bee Hive shall extract the purest form of Honey without Killing or Disturbing the Honey Bees. “This compact Robotics Bee Hive shall be installed at every village driving the Women Empowerment and supplying the Purest form of Kinds of honey to the FMCG’s”
According to Cartridge World, “3D printing also has the ability to create particularly fine details on its products, which could be useful in building artificial coral reefs to replace those lost by rising water temperatures and “inconsiderate tourist behaviour”. Previously, biologists have dropped concrete blocks into shallow waters in the hope of recreating reefs, yet studies have shown much marine life prefers surfaces with small holes and crevices to give protection from predators something 3D printing would be able to create”.
SV3DPrinter’s vision for the environment or ‘GREEN’
Nothing is completely green. 3D printing also not 100% environmental friendly or ‘ GREEN’. When we use the word ‘GREEN’ it is coming from the environment we use technology to make it word GREEN.
We all are contributors to make the world not so ‘GREEN’ or ‘POLLUTION’. We are the polluters.
The same thing for 3D Printing we use different material and printers. Using printers we need energy, same kind of energy we use to grow our raw food.
When we use ‘BIODEGRADABLE’ bags for garbage, the companies make those bags and basket, and paper bags too. Making those kinds of things we contribute more pollution.
Some of us eating raw we feel we are green but not. This is the reason people use the broom to sweep outside and inside of their house. They spread more dust and contributed more pollution to the atmosphere.
Whenever new products come in the market we always attract those things and get rid of the old thing, buy new thing even we don’t really need that.
Some of us taking the dogs for the walk, they are contributing more pollution to the atmosphere.
This is similar to use cell phone doing any other regular thing or cooking food at home.
With the 3D printing, we don’t try to waste the material can reuse the material and make any useful thing out of the waste material.
Every day we have some kind of material we call it waste or recycle. We receive junk mail, frozen food boxes, any kind of drinks bottle, or we drive to buy grocery or walk to buy things.
In my opinion, using 3D Printer may be not 100% ‘GREEN’ or environmental friendly but we can try to make it ‘99% ENVIRONMENTAL FRIENDLY and GREEN’. We need to have more understanding about Additive Manufacturing:)
