Sustainability

Sustainability is based on a simple principle: Everything that we need for our survival and well-being depends, either directly or indirectly, on our natural environment. Sustainability creates and maintains the conditions under which humans and nature can exist in productive harmony, that permit fulfilling the social, economic and other requirements of present and future generations.

Sustainability is important to making sure that we have and will continue to have, the water, materials, and resources to protect human health and our environment.

Comparison of Life Cycle Impacts

The graph below compares the health and environmental impacts of the pure base PLA resin versus the respective Solaplast Algae Filament with 45% algae loading. Thus, the green bars represent the Algae Filament’s lower environmental and health impacts compared to the impact from the pure base PLA resin.

The green bars show a lower impact, which gives a beneficial result.

This demonstrates that by using Solaplast resins, the life cycle is improved by up to 38% compared to the pure base resin.
