c2renew Composites 3D Printer Filament
c2composites are created in cooperation with c2renew, a biocomposite materials specialist. c2composites are typically created using agricultural and other natural waste streams, bringing new life to materials that would otherwise not have another use.
|Are c2renew composites biodegradable?|
|Our composite materials made with Coffee, Beer, Hemp and others are made of over 90% sustainable PLA plastic and a smaller percentage of the recycled product from the material they contain. They have two primary purposes: 1) to utilize byproducts that would otherwise be placed in landfills, and 2) to create unique and interesting filaments with which to print beautiful items. As they are mostly PLA, they are compostable in an industrial compost, will eventually biodegrade (won't last forever like petrol-based plastics), and are made from plants. Because there are not yet any truly 100% biodegradable plastics, they may be the closest you can get to a biodegradable plastic at this time.|
