Converting milk jugs to 3D printer filament

Post  bejoy on Wed Mar 12, 2014 5:32 am

A new study led by Joshua Pearce, Associate Professor, Michigan Technological University has shown that making a plastic 3D printer filament from milk jugs uses less energy - often a lot less -than recycling milk jugs conventionally. Pearce’s team did a life-cycle analysis on a run-of-the-mill milk jug made from high-density polyethylene (HDPE) plastic. After cleaning it and cutting it in pieces, they ran it through an office shredder and a RecycleBot, which turns waste plastic into 3D printer filament.
