3D-Printed Construction Using Bioplastics May Replace Concrete

(your.is.com) Currently most 3D printed construction projects use concrete. But Zoubeir Lafhaj, an expert in the future of construction, from the graduate engineering school École Centrale de Lille, in France says we need to move towards materials that use less energy, have a lower carbon footprint and produce less waste.
Examples of 3D printed construction using bioplastics can be seen on the canal-side site of Dus Architecture in Amsterdam. “We have entire 3D printed tiny houses, all kinds of staircases and walls standing here,” says Hedwig Heinsman, co-founder of the company. “It looks like a modern-day ruin.”
