Previously, engineers at Canada’s McGill University and Ryerson University were able to convert environmentally harmful wind turbine waste into a strong new PLA 3D printing material. The team was able to recycle a now defunct wind turbine blade into a fine fiber powder using a combination of mechanical grinding and pyrolysis. During overall testing, the blade wastes not only exhibited greater stiffness and strength than virgin glass fibers, but when combined with PLA, they also demonstrated the ability to produce strong fiber-reinforced 3D printed parts.

 Elsewhere, ARMOR's additive manufacturing subsidiary, KIMYA, announced plans to expand the range of recycled filament materials by 2024, involving new high-performance materials.
