Our start-up is aligned with the vision of Climate-KIC’s Sustainable Production Systems, which supports innovation to reduce industrial carbon emissions. Annually, the industrial and manufacturing sectors account for a third of greenhouse gases emissions, and the carbon footprint of plastic products in relation to the total average Western consumer carbon footprint, considering the total life-cycle balance for plastics at 1.9 kg CO2- equivalents/kg plastics, equates to 1.3% of the total consumer carbon footprint of 13.7 tonnes CO2-equivalents per capita. Thus, there is a big opportunity to innovate to reduce the amount of new plastic production, thereby reducing GHG emissions.
Bin2Print lowers educational institutions’ waste management costs and elevates their sustainability status. Our hub can process 1 tonne per year of an educational institution’s waste, and sell them back 900 kilograms of 3D printed product in any shape or object desired by the institutions. What differentiates us from an average 3Dprinting company is our focus on building the capacity of educational institutions to reduce and reuse their plastic.
