Canada-based Advanced Biocarbon 3D developed bioplastic made partly of waste wood for use in 3D printing

January 18, 2019

  • Wood-Based Bioplastic – Canadian bioplastic firm Advanced Biocarbon 3D developed 3D printing filament that is 40% wood-based and 60% plastic
  • Advantages – Sturdier than other bioplastics made from renewable sources, while also lighter, non-flammable, and moisture-resistant
  • Waste Wood – Wood used is derived from waste wood, from which resin is extracted, and leftovers are converted to polymers
  • How It Is Made – Wood chips are mixed with solvent and undergoes pressurized heating and cooling
  • Production and Sales – Company, which aims to introduce carbon-free bioplastics, is scaling production so it can start selling in 2019 Q1
  • Product Line Expansion – Plans to add more filaments to product line, such as carbon fiber reinforced filament, conductive filament, and filaments that use other wood fibers
