Growduce mini bio 3D printer turns waste into cellulose of any shape

One of the biggest shortcomings of 3D printing is the enormous amount of waste we produce. If you’re a regular ABS user, you must also be acquainted with the garbage bags full of non-biodegradable failed prints that are accumulating around you. While PLA is already a safer option in that respect, a biologist and designer have joined forces to develop solution to this problem that goes even further: the Growduce, a bio 3D printer and compost heap in one, that turns waste, bacteria and yeast into specific cellulose shapes. In the future, they hope, this could become a tabletop recycler for household products.
