According to Dr. Joshua Pearce, Professor at Michigan Technological University, “The Professor has worked to develop Eco-friendly techniques for 3D printing. His technique reduces carbon footprint. Professor Pearce has developed a “Recyclebot” to create plastic filament using recycled milk jugs. 3D printers use this material for creating structures. His study found that using recycled materials at home to create filament uses one-fortieth the amount of energy it would take to create it commercially.¨
According to the engineers from Slovenia,” they have introduced the idea of 3D printing filament with high wood content. The 3D printing filament is biodegradable and recyclable.¨
