Lancashire3D Ltd Leads the Charge on Recycling in 3D Printing Launching 'Sustainable Range'
3D Printing Studio on Track to Meet Goals in Tackling Plastic Waste
By: Lancashire3D Ltd
Currently there exists no plastic waste recycling facilities in the region that process post 3D Printing waste and the majority goes to landfill. By collecting both internal production waste plastic (e.g. support material, spool plastic and failed prints) and allowing customers to return used or unwanted 3D printed parts, Lancashire3D is converting it back into raw materials that can be used once again for 3D printing. It is anticipated that Lancashire3D Ltd will reclaim more than 165 kilograms of plastic wastage (Bioplastics and Oil-based) in a 12 month period from the primary 3D printing process alone under its sustainable plastics program.
Called the Sustainable Range (https://lancashire3d.uk/
"We know that the planet has a finite amount of resources and that we all need to take more responsibility. Governments are making plans to take action, consumers are vowing to change their behaviour, and businesses like ours are stepping up to help. By creating a circular economy (production)
