With rising interest in environmental impacts and sustainability, the 3D printing industry faces a crucial challenge to align innovation practices with sustainable goals. While UV-curable 3D printing formulations have significantly advanced in terms of quality and efficiency, there is an opportunity to improve the environmental footprint.

The challenge lies in transitioning towards a more sustainable, bio-based alternative that can offer the same high-performance output, thus bridging the gap between innovation and sustainability. Arkema is committed to supporting the industry transition to a more circular model, where we work together to significantly reduce the environmental impact of 3D printing without compromising on performance.
