Is 3D printing sustainable? Not everyone agrees.
3D Printing Industry visited AM Summit 2023, Scandinavia’s largest additive manufacturing conference, to hear from additive manufacturing industry experts on core topics – including sustainability and 3D printing.
The Copenhagen-based event saw debate surrounding what sustainability means in additive manufacturing, and whether 3D printing is actually sustainable at all.
“I’ve heard so much sustainable this and that here, and nobody has a clue whether it’s actually sustainable or just more sustainable than something else, and this is exactly the problem” argued Michael Hauschild (PhD), Head of DTU Centre for Absolute Sustainability.
