5 MSc students will give their final presentation about cellulose 3D printed fashion products made from sustainable sources. This presentation is part of the MSc course Academic Consultancy Training (ACT).
The aim of the project is to search for suitable agricultural and industrial waste streams for extraction of cellulose, its use for 3D printing fashion products and the perception of the new products in society. The main research question is: how can widely accepted 3D printed fashion products be produced using cellulose from waste streams?
The commissioner of this project is the Centre of Expertise Future Makers. The Center of Expertise Future Makers is a collaboration between ArteZ University of Arts, other universities in the Netherlands, designers and entrepreneurs that aims to develop a new luxury of sustainable materials and to innovate production technology. It searches for new ideas in the sustainable (re)use in the field of fashion, product and interior design.
The collaboration between WUR and ArtEZ is part of 100Year initiatives.
