H2020 Repair3D – Recycling and Repurposing of Plastic Waste for Advanced 3D Printing Applications (www.repair3d.eu)
“Repair3D – Recycling and Repurposing of Plastic Waste for Advanced 3D Printing Applications”. Is a H2020 (5.9 € Million Grant – 49-month) project, which started on the 1st January 2019. It has the participation of 18 partners.
The project aims to address all aspects and stages of thermoplastic and CF reinforced thermoplastic 3D printing material development from recycled resources, starting with the selection of suitable waste streams, strategies for material repair, compatibilization and upgrade towards AM processing, compatibility between different thermoplastic matrices and the reinforcing fibres and nanoparticles, comparative assessment of various AM thermoplastic processing technologies and closed-loop material optimisation in terms of processability and performance.
