Any manufacturing process has to aim at generating less waste and lowering its environmental impact.

Additive Manufacturing has great potential in reducing the need for energy- and resource-intensive manufacturing processes. It also has the advantage of producing less material waste than, for instance, subtractive technologies and it has the benefit of cost-effectively fabricating objects on-demand, eliminating the need for warehousing extra goods made with mass manufacturing technologies.

The path towards sustainable products requires significant changes throughout several value chains, impacting product design, material use, production processes, business models, and waste management.

In order to achieve this there are several steps to be taken by the players in the value chain. These are the topics of the conference as well:

  • A change in mindset
  • Involve the whole value chain in the product creation process (from design to recycling)
  • Life Cycle Assessment
  • Use of Bio Based Materials
  • Implementing (chemical) recycling in the AM value chain

This conference covers the above mentioned topics and will show some relevant use cases.
