A study published in the journal Applied Bio Materials and Biomacromolecules has reported the development of wood-based biopaste suitable for the 3D printing process. According to researchers from the University of Freiburg, the viscous biopaste can be processed easily and is suitable for the production of complex 3D printed structures.
The biodegradable synthetic substance could be used potentially in lightweight construction and used for several other purposes. Talking about the nature of the new substance. Marie-Pierre Laborie, lead author of the study said, “This is why we’re researching into alternative possibilities for making better use of this raw material in future.”
