New York–based 3D printing service company 3D Brooklyn is collaborating with Dutch design studio Better Future Factory to provide its users with recycled filaments made out of waste plastics. Available for purchase on the company's online store, Refil AB is made from old car dashboards and door panels, while Refil PET comes from recycled plastic bottles. Available in four colors including transparent green, transparent blue, transparent natural, and black.
"This project also gives us a glimpse into the true potential for green materials in 3D-printing… this one client project alone will use 60 spools of our recycled filament and cost our client 80% less than virgin bioplastic (PLA)." says Nate Kolbeck, CEO and cofounder of 3D Brooklyn, in a 3DPrint.com article. "In short, we can now offer recycled material at one fifth of the cost of virgin materials."
