Ecological Sustainability

New technologies are exposed to the most critical eyes and the demand for information on ecological effects of additive manufacturing is increasing. We at MGA believe in the huge potential of AM to contribute to the green transformation towards a circular economy.

This includes topics like the carbon footprint, statements about energy consumption, waste reduction, the reuse of valuable materials and the recycling of unavoidable waste.

This working group is focusing on concrete facts and figures in order to correctly evaluate the ecological potential of Additive Manufacturing and show how green this technology is.

Identification of key factors to make AM an all-green technology

Creation of reliable theses on sustainable AM

Acquisition and exchange of knowledge from and with leading experts in sustainable AM

Collection and analysis of best practices

Development of strategies to increase sustainability throughout the AM industry

Identification of specific potentials for ecological improvement
