Recycled filament for 3D printing
Collaboration with sustainable start-ups speeds up the transformation to a circular economy. For example, we helped a number of young entrepreneurs from the Better Future Factory on their way in their ambition to make filament for 3D printers from our recycled plastics. However, to be able to do that, all kinds of rules and regulations must be met, such as REACH and ROHS. And because of the very fact that they are recycled materials, it is more complex compared to primary raw materials. We played an important role in the transfer of knowledge and through our subsidiary Coolrec, we also supplied the plastic for a white filament called HIPS. This plastic is obtained from the recycling of old refrigerators. The 3D filaments are supplied on a cardboard spool that is also fully recyclable. Interested in HIPS? Click here for a look.
