Sustainability in Additive Manufacturing

In 2022 Roland Berger published a paper called “Sustainable Additive Manufacturing”, which scratched below the surface and examined the reality behind the hype and found that additive manufacturing can indeed make a potentially vast contribution to carbon-neutral economies. However, it must become more transparent about those areas where it still falls short. It must openly assess every phase in the lifecycle of AM-produced parts – AM materials production, parts manufacturing, parts useage and disposal/recycling – to showcase its true potential and benefits. It must also work hard to genuinely improve its overall environmental footprint.
