PRESTON, U.K. - Oct. 16, 2019 - PRLog -- Lancashire3D Ltd (https://lancashire3d.uk), the largest 3D printing studio in the North of England, announced today that it has become the first UK based studio to deliver on the circular production promise in which resources are reused again and again to benefit the 3D printing ecosystem and environment by reducing its waste and recycling on site.

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/materials/) these recycled plastics will complement its existing Filamentive recycled plastics and will be offered to customers at a discounted price, allowing Lancashire3D Ltd to pass on the savings from reclaiming plastics.

"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), which means that when finished with, 3D printing material returns for recycling and is changed back to printable material and reused, waste is seen as a resource and part of a continuous cycle," commented Steven Pearson, Co-Founder at Lancashire3D Ltd.

Progress on Plastic
In 2018 Lancashire3D Ltd announced a series of commitments (https://lancashire3d.uk/plastic-recycling/) to sustainable production and to being able to recycle 100% of its waste thermoplastic material. Always actively looking for new ways to drive the 3D printing industry forward, while enforcing strict quality assurance*, here are some of the ways it has made progress to meet these commitments:

●      95% of Lancashire3D Ltd's waste production plastic is reclaimed and recycled. Waste plastic is processed in-house and recycled back into sustainable 3D printing material.
●      Lancashire3D Ltd uses up to 100% recycled content in its plastics.
●      In 2018 Lancashire3D Ltd partnered with the industry leader in sustainable 3D printing materials (Filamentive) who incorporate waste streams, such as plastic food containers and drinks bottles and these are used for some materials. Any waste created during production from these input plastics is then further recycled in-house.
●      Lancashire3D Ltd uses 100% recyclable eco packaging (paper based).
