Some of our charcoal carbon filter frames for Mitsubishi Electric ductless systems are 3D printed using environmentally friendly PLA.
Polylactic Acid (PLA) is a biodegradable plastic that offers numerous environmental benefits. Unlike traditional petroleum-based plastics, PLA is made from renewable resources such as corn starch, sugarcane, or cassava roots, which reduces dependence on finite fossil fuels and helps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. When disposed of in the right conditions, PLA biodegrades into water and carbon dioxide, leaving no toxic residue. Furthermore, the production process of PLA uses less energy and produces fewer harmful byproducts compared to the production of traditional plastics, making it a more sustainable option. The use of PLA can also help reduce waste in landfills and litter in the natural environment, making it a favorable choice for those concerned with environmental sustainability.
