The 3 sustainable benefits 3D printing delivers to you
Reap the rewards of a reduced environmental footprint, minimal impact on materials, and unique, high-quality products.
Contribute to a circular economy
Reduce CO₂ emissions
Rethinking our production for a brighter future
Our ambition is to become truly circular in our 3D printing activities. We are deeply committed to reducing CO₂ emissions as a vital part of our efforts to combat climate change.
In the following sections, you can explore each stage of our sustainable production process, discovering how we contribute to a better world.
Using recycled and bio-circular materials
We produce all printed parts with at least 55% recycled or mass-balanced bio-circular plastics.
This includes the use of recycled materials as well as bio-circular materials. For bio-circular materials, the entire supply chain is ISCC³ Plus certified. We even utilize waste materials such as 100% recycled fishing nets.
Printing local and on-demand
We produce on-demand with short production lead times to prevent unsold stocks.
Rejected parts are being recycled by our in-house recycling unit, so these materials can be reused. Also, compared to conventional methods, we integrate up to 40% fewer components¹.
Creating sustainable lighting solutions
Our remarkable lighting solutions are designed for circularity. With a focus on energy efficiency & lifetime and being connectable, upgradable, reusable & recyclable.
Our products are also light in weight, resulting in a lower carbon footprint associated with manufacturing, shipping and transportation².
Closing the loop
To minimize our products end up in landfills, we collaborate with numerous recycling schemes and companies across Europe and North America.
Our products are designed to be easily disassembled, thanks to our use of no glue, no paint, no potting, and fewer screws.
Printed parts can be recycled to create new products, and we're currently testing the viability of recycling our own printed materials from End-of-Life products to print new parts again.
Facts and figures
Three of our production sites are ISCC Plus³ certified.
