Global Recycling Day 2022

Just in time for the Global Recycling Day 2022, HSVA is launching a project to process 50 kg of polylactide waste from HSVA's 3D printing center into new filament.
Besides being a renewable raw material, PLA is also useful for recycling economy.
Recycling economy saves time, energy and resources. It reduces the volume of waste and enables "zero-waste" production in the ideal case.
The aim of this project is to test the extent to which recycled PLA filament is suitable for production in HSVA.
On our YouTube channel you will soon learn how recyclable waste becomes a final product!
