Landfillament – Recycled MSW Filament
3D print with hot garbage! Landfillament is a garbage based 3D printing filament made using recycled Municipal Solid Waste (MSW).
Landfillament – Trash Filled Filament can be printed on any machine capable of printing with PLA using standard PLA settings.
How It’s Made
On location, the MSW, from which metals have been removed, is run through a process called pyrolysis – a thermochemical decomposition of organic material at high temperatures in the absence of oxygen. During pyrolysis a char byproduct is created.
The black char byproduct can be used for many things, including composite plastic 3D printing filament. The gas byproducts produced in this process are also captured for new uses. Because of this process, each spool of Landfillament sequesters .909lbs of CO2e (carbon dioxide equivalent) which is the equivalent amount of greenhouse gas emitted by a car driven 1.1 miles.
This is the fourth in a line of intriguing materials from 3D-Fuel called the c2composites. More distinctive bio-based products will be released soon.
All 3D-Fuel 3D printer filament is manufactured in Fargo, North Dakota, or Moville, Ireland. We have complete control over the manufacturing process and can ensure consistent quality for every spool.
We know that variable diameter can cause big problems for your 3D printer. We use a multi-axis laser measurement system to control the filament diameter and ovality during production. Every spool has the diameter and ovality measurements listed right on the box.
500g (1.1lbs) of Landfillament on an easy to use plastic reel is vacuum sealed with a desiccant packet to keep out any moisture.
