2022 Sustainability winner, Canada McMaster University invented by students “Polyformer” it was a project. With the machine, which was designed based on the high cost of filament imports and the lack of recycling infrastructure in plastic bottles, plastic bottles are recycled and turned into affordable 3D printer filament for developing countries. With Polyformer, manufacturers have easier access to inexpensive, high-quality 3D printer filament, encouraging the use of design infrastructure and career thinking in developing countries, enabling manufacturers to recycle their own waste and use output efficiently.


of this year International if the second, from the University of Antwerp, Belgium Invented by Charlotte Blancke “Ivy” it happened.
