In the quest for a sustainable future, recycling innovations play a pivotal role in addressing environmental challenges and promoting circular economy practices. And once again, 3devo has demonstrated its value in enabling ground-breaking research innovations across diverse fields. In this blog post, we examine five exceptional studies showcasing the potential of 3devo’s machinery in recycling various waste streams. These remarkable achievements not only contribute to preserve the environment but also pave the way for sustainable manufacturing and new possibilities within various industries. Learn how 3devo’s solutions are advancing recycling innovations and transforming industries to create a more sustainable future.
Witness the valorization of agriculture waste by the Centre for Scientific and Technological Research of Extremadura (CICYTEX) and the University of Extremadura. Using 3devo’s machinery, they create plant fiber reinforcements for bio-composites. This breakthrough revolutionizes industries like automotive and construction by reducing dependency on virgin resources and embracing sustainable alternatives.
Researchers at the University of West Attica have addressed the global shortage of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) during the COVID-19 pandemic. With 3devo’s solution, they were able to recycle PPE waste into high-quality filaments for 3D printing. This innovation not only addresses critical supply gaps but also showcases the potential of recycling technologies in emergency situations.
The University of Western Macedonia has successfully turned bottle caps waste into customizable 3D prints. This innovation is a game-changer for the souvenir industry, providing sustainable manufacturing processes that promote a country’s image and culture while minimizing environmental impact.
ENEA Casaccia Research Centre demonstrates the upcycling potential of 3devo’s machinery by converting Waste of Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) into 3D printing filament. From scanners to keyboards, this innovative process reduces electronic waste while harnessing valuable resources for sustainable manufacturing.
The University of Aveiro pioneers bio-based cork composites for 3D printing using fully biodegradable cork filaments. By leveraging 3devo’s technology, they create novel, eco-friendly printing materials, encouraging circular economy practices and reducing the environmental impact of cork waste generated by a Portuguese company.
