The 3D printers contribution to save the environment, with rebuilding ceramic corals reefs

Posted on Updated on

The 3D printer’s contribution to saving environment rebuilding ceramic corals reefs.
According to Ezri Tarazi, an industrial design professor at the Technion—Israel Institute of Technology, who is collaborating with other researchers from his university, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, and Bar-Ilan University on the project, “As a diver, I was seeing the early signs of this five years ago. I was thinking, how can we take a reef that’s totally collapsing—which means there are no branches of corals anymore because they collapse, and fish cannot hide—and how can we reignite life in it? Because I’m an industrial designer, the idea to print corals was the first thing coming to mind.”

Can we print a new set of coral reefs before they’re gone?

3D printing for environment less waste, more sustainability

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”.
