3D-Fuel Announces New Recycled Product

Fargo, North Dakota - 3D-Fuel has announced the launch of ReFuel™ Recycled PETG filament, expanding on its popular ReFuel™ filament line.  

3D-Fuel's ReFuel™ filament line is produced using scraps, out-of-spec material, and cut off waste. These byproducts of normal production are otherwise destined for landfills. 3D-Fuel has developed an approach to use these still valuable production byproducts. These materials are ground, dried, and then used as a recycled feedstock for ReFuel™ filament. ReFuel™ recycled filaments are the same quality and specifications as 3D-Fuel filament produced from virgin materials.

PETG has key advantages over other materials. It prints as easily as PLA while offering a higher temperature profile and being more resistant to impact. PETG is most often used to manufacture many consumer products and is fully recyclable at the end of a product’s life.

John Schneider, 3D-Fuel CEO, says “Our commitment to sustainability has us always looking for ways to reduce waste and divert usable materials from the landfill. As our production capacity continues to increase, the amount of byproducts produced also increases. Taking advantage of our existing PETG material stream helps us achieve our sustainability goals while providing a much requested addition to our ReFuel™ Recycled Filament line."

ReFuel™ Recycled PETG filament is available in 1.75mm. Colors vary with each production run. ReFuel™ Recycled PETG is available for $22/kg spool making it a compelling addition to the 3D-Fuel filament lineup.

Since 2014, 3D-Fuel has been a leading producer of plastic-based monofilaments for use in the 3D printing industry. The company produces 18 different product lines in numerous different colors and reaches consumers throughout the world. 3D-Fuel is headquartered in Fargo, North Dakota, USA with a European production facility in Moville, Ireland.  

The company maintains a strict commitment to sustainability. 3D-Fuel proudly uses plant-based inputs such as NatureWorks Ingeo PLA, which uses plant-captured carbon as a feedstock. Additionally, production waste is diverted from landfills and recycled into new filament sold under the ReFuel™ product line.
