Urban waste and bioinspired engineering provide key ingredients to 3D printed bioplastic, allowing for global adoption of sustainable manufacturing processes.

Researchers from the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD) have developed a process that allows for the production and degradation of almost any object within a circular economy using additive manufacturing and urban waste, the largest by-product of civilisation.
