Recycled Materials for 3D Printing
Our aim is to provide a sustainable source of raw materials to 3D printing users. Where possible, recycled materials will be used to produce our 3D printer filament, in accordance with ISO 14021:2016.
A careful selection criteria is in place in order to guarantee single-source waste streams. As of 2021, we are mainly working with post-industrial waste – material diverted from the waste stream during a manufacturing process.
The environmental benefits of this are: reducing the amount of plastic being sent to landfill, avoiding consumption of the Earth’s finite oil stocks and lowering energy demand compared to producing new, virgin polymers.
100% Recyclable Cardboard Filament Spools
We are committed to reducing the environmental impact of our products by increasing recyclability of packaging / materials.
At Filamentive, the entire product lifecycle is considered – enabling reuse / recycling of filament spools in-line with Circular Economy. Furthermore, all cardboard product boxes are made from 100% recycled cardboard, and can then be recycled also via council / industrial recycling bins (in the UK).

100% Recyclable 3D Printing Waste
A frequently asked question is “can I recycle 3D printing waste?”
If you are wondering what to do with your 3D print waste, you’ll be pleased to know that Filamentive materials have been proven to be 100% recyclable* using desktop extruders – for example, London-based Architectural practice, Make, have implemented this solution into their model-making workflow. This further reduces plastic waste with the additional financial benefit of lowering on-going materials costs.

Hassle-free, first-time-right 3D printing
Filamentive is a participant of the Ultimaker Material Alliance Program. Four of our 3D printing filaments – ASA, Carbon Fibre, PETg and PLA – have been added to the Ultimaker Marketplace.
As such, these four products are listed in the Ultimaker software and all 3D printing settings will be provided to make sure that we can together offer unprecedented hassle-free printing, first-time-right-printing and ease of use to our joint end-users – substantially improving printing reliability and printing quality.
CO2 Offset via Ecologi
With Ecologi, we plant trees and fund environment projects globally to ensure we are Climate Positive.
For every 1 kg of plastic produced, at least 1 kg of CO2 will be offset.
Eco Responsible 3D Printing Alliance
The vision for the Eco Responsible 3D Printing Alliance™ is to curate a group of like-minded organisations to drive positive change in 3D printing – making a tangible impact to increase resource efficiency, reduce environmental impact, and harness a Circular Economy.
In addition to the primary environmental benefit, this also unlocks commercial opportunities for businesses using 3D printing – enabling increased brand equity and enhanced USP, as well as tangible marketing benefits such as lead generation, SEO improvement and content for social channels.
XL Filament Spools
As a 3D printer filament supplier to thousands of makers, businesses and 3D printing service providers, we understand the market demands and needs, and therefore offer large spools of our 3D printing filament – in 2.3 kg, 4.5 kg and 8.5 kg sizes.
XL Filament spools are perfect for large 3D prints / large format 3D printers. The extra volume of material also ensures fewer spools changes which increases production efficiency.
Furthermore, filament winding equipment is set-up to achieve economies of scale, and so it requires less labour to wind larger filament spools – this lowers manufacturing cost and therefore we’re happy to pass on the cost-savings.
REACH & RoHS Compliant
Ensuring you are 3D printing safely is above all else. Rest assured, all filament for 3D printers are compliant with the following safety standards:
To further support operational, technical and regulatory procedures, we publish in-depth Technical Data Sheets (TDS) and Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS).
