As part of the TRANSFORM-CE project, several case studies will be done to assess the conditions that foster the uptake of recycled plastic feedstock in (new) products. This document covers the results of the case study at 3DPW Limited, based in Bradford, UK. A total of 20 case studies will be done, each representing one product to be (re)designed with recycled plastic. In depth support will be given to five cases per country (The Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, and the United Kingdom).
This case study highlights opportunities for companies such as 3DPW Limited to close the loop within the 3D printing sector. Rather than down-cycling waste filament through injection moulding, this case study has shown that waste collected from customers can be turned back into 3D printing filament.
