Every year, 15 billion trees are cut down to produce paper, build homes, and make furniture. From this, millions of tons of wood waste are generated annually.
A portion of this waste is recovered and sold to downstream markets to make particle board or wood pellets for energy.
In the U.S. alone there’s 84 million tonnes of sawdust generated each year.
Forust has put this sawdust to proper use by creating 3D printed wood. It is creating strong, beautiful and carbon-friendly wood products from wood waste.
Forust was founded to make high-volume wood 3D printing affordable, reliable, and sustainable.
This form of added manufacturing of wood will be beneficial for the environment, if nudged in the right direction it can change the way we use wood.
3D printed wood can be given any form and shape, it can be used and made into any intricate designs as desired. In addition to this, it will reduce the wastage of wood as it is another form of wood upcycling.
