Filamentive Declare Recycled Content Certification – ISO 14021

Bradford, West Yorkshire, United Kingdom – January 22nd 2019 – Filamentive is proud to declare the recycled content of all 3D printing filament products, in accordance with ISO 14021.

Whilst at its core 3D printing is fundamentally less wasteful than traditional, subtractive manufacturing methods, the use of plastic as a feedstock has the potential to exacerbate the global plastic epidemic.

In response to the rising issue of plastic  – and the inevitable rise in plastic use because of 3D printing – Filamentive is committed to using a high-percentage of recycled materials in all products manufactured and sold, as well as committing to recyclable spools and packaging. The following products have been evaluated according to: BS EN ISO 14021:2016 – Environmental labels and declarations — Self-declared environmental claims (Type II environmental labelling)

 

“Due to FDM/FFF 3D printers using plastic materials as feedstock, unfortunately as 3D printing becomes more popular, plastic production and consumption will increase, causing the industry to exacerbate the global problem of plastic” states Filamentive founder, Ravi Toor. “Filamentive specialise in sustainable 3D printing filament materials. The company was founded to address to the environmental need to use more recycled plastics in 3D printing, and also alleviate market concerns over quality and long term sustainability”.

Filamentive was founded to challenge that very notion that recycled products are of inferior quality. The company recognises the that high quality filament produces high quality 3D-prints, which is why they commit to strict waste selection and manufacturing procedures to ensure no impact on user-performance.

“It is becoming evident that all consumers – from hobbyists to large businesses – are becoming increasingly environmentally-aware and so we will continue to set high targets for recycled content and the recyclability of our packaging” adds Ravi Toor.

Filamentive 3D printer filament products can be found online via filamentive.com, via the UK distributor, 3DGBIRE, or globally via a network of Resellers.
