Repair3D – Recycling and Repurposing of Plastic Waste for Advanced 3D Printing Applications

an H2020 project. Introduction of the Repair3D project. The project aims at the development of innovative reclamation and repurposing routes for end-of-life plastic and carbon fibre reinforced polymer (CFRP) components. This will be achieved by employing advanced nanotechnology solutions, Additive Manufacturing (AM) and recycled resources, for the production of high added value 3D printed products with advanced functionalities.

3D printing and circularity

jeannette levels

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?
