Sustainable & Green Approach

Construction industry goes green with 3D printing technology

To combat climate change, green and eco-friendly resources along with advanced digital
technologies are being developed. The construction industry is also facing significant
changes in its scale and distribution. With the resource constraints, new innovations are
urgently needed. At PRINT4D the current projects aim to satisfy this need by promoting a
greener circular economic model for production and consumption. Specifically, we are
developing a novel 3D printing technology to design an environmentally friendly cementitious
feedstock using construction and demolition waste as well as other industrial by-products
suitable for structural load-bearing building blocks.
