Additive Manufacturing 6K receives Sustainability Award for powder manufacturing process
USA — AMGTA presented the Environmental Sustainability Research Award to 6K Additive based on Foresight Management’s Life Cycle Assessment analysis of the Unimelt powder manufacturing process.
3D printing company 6K Additive was announced the winner of the AMGTA Environmental Sustainability Research Award at the annual AMGTA members event. The award recognises members who have published directly commissioned research focused on environmental sustainability in additive manufacturing. At this event AMGTA presented awards in three key areas: sustainability research, reporting, and management, all of which are the focus of the AMGTA organisation.
According to Frank Roberts, 6K Additive president, the results of recent independent life cycle assessment revealed the Unimelt process for nickel production reduces carbon by 92 percent while using 91 percent less energy to do so.
AMGTA is a non-commercial, unaffiliated organisation formed to promote the environmental benefits of additive manufacturing.
