Medical technology: printing sustainability

Manufacturing medical products is complicated. A lot of resources and energy have to be used. And in the end, there is not only the final product, but also a large amount of waste like chemicals or leftovers of raw materials. All of this is the cost of products that are likely only used once. But it is true for medical technology, just like other industries: recycling is better than trashing and re-use is better than recycling. This is why the industry needs new production processes. Learn in our Special how sustainability can be "on a roll" in medical technology.
