In the recently published "Recycled Sustainable 3D Printing Materials for Marine Environments," the authors—involved in the Bio-Shelters Project—venture into the realm of sustainability and recycling in 3-D printing, but they also heavily explore the ever-growing science of materials during a three-phase project made up of not only designers and architects but also experts in materials and marine ecology.
For this project, the team used a base of both conventional and alternative materials, to include:
- Cellulose fiber
- Recycled paper
- Wood and polystyrene waste
