3D printing and circularity

3D printing is gaining more and more practical applications within the manufacturing industry. Is this a ecological beneficial development? Some impact assessments illustrate up to 47% better performance. What can we learn from these assessments? What are the conditions to guarantee the performance over the whole lifecycle? How can we incorporate 3D printing in a circular strategy and business model?

In her session, Jeannette Levels, will answer these questions using practical examples and models. You will gain insights and support to develop circular economy for your own organisation.

View of the Speaker

Question 1: What drives you?
Creating a circular economy is a positive prospectus on a manufacturing industry operating within the planetary boundaries.

Question 2: Why should the delegate attend your session?
You will gain insights and support to develop circular economy for your own organisation.

Question 3: What emerging technologies / trends do you see as having the greatest potential in the short and long run?
data driven material flows

Question 4: What kind of impact do you expect them to have?
Data driven value chains will explore new co operations and business models, the classic value chain relations are changing rapidly and new value systems are created. These systems are data driven and have a new circular economy efficiency in providing, also changing, market demands.

Question 5: What are the barriers that might stand in the way?
Policy and traditional market structures, such as tenders, are not changing fast enough to create a clear perspective on a short term for the industrial transformation needed.
