Groundbreaking eco-printing: Coffee grounds revolutionize 3D printing

A groundbreaking initiative led by Michael Rivera, an Assistant Professor at the University of Colorado Boulder, is pioneering the use of recycled coffee grounds to revolutionize 3D printing. This innovative approach involves creating a sustainable paste from coffee grounds, water, and other eco-friendly components, opening up possibilities to replace traditional plastics in 3D printing.

The team has successfully crafted various objects, from jewelry to espresso cups, showcasing the method’s versatility. Rivera envisions a future where anyone can easily adopt this eco-conscious 3D printing technique, heralding a greener era for manufacturing.
