Stay up to date with everything that is happening in the wonderful world of AM via our LinkedIn community.

KVP and 3D Printlife partnered together to create the first complete line of eco-friendly filaments including ABS, PETG & Performance rPET 3D materials. Keene Village Plastics is always looking for ways to improve how they manufacturer material and produce filaments that are environmentally friendly, with their N-Vire Line of filaments they can achieve just that. KVP’s ABS, PETG & Performance rPET are manufactured using 3D Printlife’s proprietary bio-additive that allows bacteria to consume these materials once they enter a commercial compost or landfill to energy facility.

N-Vire Bioproducts are made in the USA and are wound onto a spool made of 100% recycled polycarbonate. Bonding 3D Printlife’s bio-additive to KVP’s ABS, PETG and Performance rPET allows landfill bacteria to consume it and convert it to CO2.

To further reduce the environmental impact of 3D printing, 3D Printlife and Keene Village Plastics will donate a portion of the proceeds from every spool sold to an environmental charity to plant a tree.

“3D Printlife is proud to partner with Keene Village Plastics,” said Buzz Baldwin, Co-Founder of 3D Printlife, “They have long been recognized as a premier manufacturer of 3D filaments, and their lengthy relationships with both MakerBot and 3D Systems speak to their commitment to quality. We are so excited to share our bio-additive technology with them as we both strive to reduce effects of 3D printing on the environment.”

“Keene Village Plastics is very excited to partner with 3D Printlife and incorporate their Bio-Additive technology and expand our product offering with more environmentally friendly materials,” added General Manager John Hosbach, “At the end of the day, we all should strive to protect our environment, and this partnership allows us to do just that!”

Victor does not really exist. He is a pseudonym for several writers in the 3D Printing Media Network team. As a pseudonym, Victor has also had a fascinating made-up life story, living as a digital (and virtual) nomad to cover the global AM industry. He has always worked extra-hard whenever he was needed to create unique content. However, lately, as our editorial team has grown, he is mostly taking care of publishing press releases.
