COMPOST3D - How plastics come to life the moment we throw them away

B4PLASTICS and its development partner Trideus turn 3D printing with plastic materials circular: COMPOST3D® is the first 3D plastic filament in the world that connects design and composting of 3D objects by means of a smartphone app. Since the origin of plastics, COMPOST3D® is thereby the first plastic product ever that gives consumers numeric end‐of-life information dependent on the way of design and use. How plastics come to life the moment we throw them away.

COMPOST3D® is an innovation by B4PLASTICS and Trideus, two young Flemish companies. B4PLASTICS develops custommade eco‐plastics for new functional applications that gear up to the highest eco‐level in their respective market segments. COMPOST3D® can be purchased via the webshop of Trideus in Belgium. Important print characteristics are best‐in-class, such as impact resistance, toughness, overhang and printing comfort. The typical silk-look reflects the new eco‐level that has never been reached before in the 3D printing world. The COMPOST3D® filament comes with its own smartphone app for Android and iOS. It calculates the time required for mineralization in your garden compost bin, dependent on each unique 3D object and printer system. COMPOST3D® gives you thereby the control to bridge your 3D prints creation, to their donation – back to Nature.

COMPOST3D® is offered packed in eco‐kartonnage on 500‐g eco-spools in natural colors silk white, desert yellow, fresh-leaf green, terra brown and compost black. Both standard diameters 1,75mm and 2,85mm come at a price of € 49,95 per spool. We advise to stock your empty eco-spools till we announce our next innovation.
