WOODINVILLE, WA / ACCESSWIRE / March 14, 2022 / Carbon Source, a wholly owned subsidiary of CarbonMeta Technologies Inc. (OTC PINK:COWI), announces the beta availability of its Upcycle PLA™ 3D printing filament made from 100% post-consumer waste plastics.
Carbon Source has developed a 3D printer filament made from recycled Polylactic Acid (PLA), a thermoplastic polyester made from plant starches derived from corn, cassava, sugarcane or sugar beet pulp. The Company has also developed a process to upcycle PLA waste plastics such as clear plastic cold cups, compostable cutlery, compostable packaging, and 3D printing service waste plastics into 3D printing filament.
According to Market Data Forecast, the global 3D printing plastics market size was more than $698 million in 2021, expected to reach $1.96 billion by 2026, registering a CAGR of 28.3%. Carbon Source’s innovations give the company unique footing as an early mover in this lucrative, rapidly growing market.
“Demand for 3D printer filament products made from recycled plastics has been growing, but very few companies have successfully upcycled post-consumer waste plastics,” said Lloyd Spencer, president of Carbon Source. “Processing post-consumer plastic waste streams into 3D printing products requires close cooperation with sourcing partners such as restaurant service and 3D printing service companies.”
Carbon Source currently offers Upcycle PLA, GreenGate3D PET-G and Closed Loop Plastics U-HIPS 3D printer filament products; and plans to develop 3D printer filaments comprising at least 50% post-consumer polyethylene terephthalate (PETE), low-density polyethylene (LDPE), and high density polyethylene (HDPE).
Carbon Source’s plastic upcycling partners include SnoCo Makerspace (https://SnoCoMakers.org), PrintStart3D (https://www.printstart3d.com/), Seattle Makers (https://SeattleMakers.org), and Grounds Co. (https://www.facebook.com/Groundscc/).
In addition, Carbon Source offers a 3D printer filament development program to corporate, government and makerspace customers that want to upcycle waste plastic streams into custom formulations.
