LONDON, ENGLAND, June 10, 2020 /24-7PressRelease/ -- 3dpbm, a leading provider of high-quality news, analyses and specialized content for the additive manufacturing industry, is proud to present the fifth edition of its AM Focus eBook series. This publication focuses on a subject that has become critical across all industries: Sustainability.
Within the broader additive manufacturing market, the question of sustainability is an interesting and multifaceted one. On the one hand, AM technologies can be understood as inherently more sustainable than many traditional manufacturing processes—due to their additive rather than subtractive nature. On the other hand, as a manufacturing industry that consumes materials and energy, AM raises inevitable ecological issues. Fortunately, sustainability in AM can make sense economically. In its capacity to consume less material, produce on location and enable more energy-efficient products, the additive manufacturing industry appears ideally positioned to successfully combine environmental and economic sustainability.
This 50-page eBook opens up a focused dialogue by presenting insights from industry players seeking to understand the ecological implications of 3D printing, like the newly founded Additive Manufacturer Green Trade Association (AMGTA), as well as companies that are setting an example within the industry, such as EOS, Sintavia and AMEXCI. The eBook also presents an in-depth analysis of AM in the energy sector by 3dpbm Co-founder and industry analyst, Davide Sher addressing renewable energy industries like solar, wind, hydro and geothermal, and the non-renewable oil and gas and nuclear sectors. Finally, 3dpbm's eBook highlights a number of projects happening across industry, academia and design that show the versatile ways that sustainability and additive manufacturing are linked.
"While sustainability is our AM Focus topic for the month, it is an important issue that must really transcend all aspects of the AM world," said Tess Boissonneault, 3dpbm's Editor in Chief. "By addressing various ways that the AM business and sustainability intersect, our eBook showcases not only how additive manufacturing is enabling more sustainable practices and applications, but also that it is possible to achieve significant business growth within an environmentally friendly industry."
3dpbm's eBook can be viewed or downloaded on the 3dpbm website via the following link. To maintain an open discourse and open access to AM news, the publication is free to access.
