VoxelMatters Sustainability AM Focus 2023 eBook

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

When we talk about sustainability in additive manufacturing, we’re interested in a few perspectives. For one, it’s important to talk about and understand the ways in which additive technologies are sustainable, especially compared to more conventional production methods. At the same time, we also want to understand how AM is creating opportunities for greater sustainability in certain applications, such as lighter aircraft parts. Finally, it’s also important to address how additive manufacturing, as a technology and as an industry, can strive to be more sustainable. 

In this eBook, we’re looking at all these angles, first with an overview of the industries and applications where AM is enabling a more sustainable future, from wind turbines, to custom eyewear, to lab-grown meat. Next is an interview with Materialise’s Head of Sustainability Leen Kuijken and AMGTA Executive Director Sherri Monroe, who talk about how businesses in the AM sphere can kickstart their sustainability efforts and create a roadmap with a real impact.

In an interview with AM entrepreneur Andy Jeffery, we hear how sustainability has been a driving force in his prolific career, culminating in his recent venture Marvel Labs, which has developed a 3D printing technology that uses bio-based byproducts, like seaweed, sawdust, and coffee grounds as printing materials. Finally, we look at what some of the AM companies with the most ambitious sustainability missions are doing to improve their ecological impacts.
