AMGTA publiceert proces voor veilig transport en recycling van metaalpoeder condensaat afval

Uniek proces, ontwikkeld door KBM Advanced Materials en Sintavia, passiveert metaal condensaat in een verwijderbare hars, waardoor veilig transport en recycling mogelijk zijn

HOLLYWOOD, Fl.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– De Additive Manufacturer Green Trade Association (AMGTA), een wereldwijde handelsorganisatie die is opgericht om de milieuvoordelen van additive manufacturing (AM) te promoten, heeft vandaag aangekondigd dat het een rapport heeft uitgebracht waarin de vereisten voor passiveren worden uiteengezet metaal condensaat afval voor transport en recycling. Het nieuwe proces, dat is ontwikkeld door AMGTA-lid Sintavia en KBM Advanced Materials, omvat het mengen van poeder condensaat afval met een verwijderbare hars, waardoor het afval ongevaarlijk is en kan worden vervoerd naar een recyclingfabriek.

AMGTA Publishes Process to Safely Transport and Recycle Metal Powder Condensate Waste

Unique process, developed by KBM Advanced Materials and Sintavia, passivates metal condensate in a removable resin, allowing for safe transport and recycling

HOLLYWOOD, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– The Additive Manufacturer Green Trade Association (AMGTA), a global trade organization created to promote the environmental benefits of additive manufacturing (AM), announced today that it had issued a report outlining the requirements to passivate metal condensate waste for transport and recycling. The new process, which was developed by AMGTA member, Sintavia, and KBM Advanced Materials, involves mixing powder condensate waste with a removable resin, which renders the waste non-hazardous and shippable to a recycling plant.

“Today’s report is a must-read for any company involved in laser powder bed fusion metal additive manufacturing,” said Sherri Monroe, the AMGTA’s Executive Director. “Not only does this new process reduce transportation costs, but it is also reversible, meaning that metal recycling companies can have unsoiled access to the underlying powder once it is received—thus allowing for the potential to recycle waste material that previously had to be put in a hazardous waste landfill.”

“I hope that other companies adopt this new process, as it will reduce their transportation costs since the underlying material is no longer hazardous,” said Brian Neff, the AMGTA’s Board Chair and CEO of Sintavia. “This report is an excellent example of the AMGTA taking a leadership role in developing sustainable use practices for additive manufacturing.”

Metal condensate, which is the term used for excess soot and powder that is blown off of a build plate during the powder bed fusion additive manufacturing process, had previously been treated as a hazardous material and disposed of as such at a very high cost.
