Leading the charge toward sustainability in the UAE construction scene, 3DXB group brings 3D printing eco-friendly solutions inspired by a commitment to eco-friendly practices. The company supports the UAE government’s vision of constructing 25% of buildings using 3D printing by 2030. Moreover, they use locally sourced eco-friendly materials paired with innovative and durable machinery to bring down the overall production cost.
A leading innovator in 3D printing solutions, 3DXB is ready to make significant changes in the construction industry. Yes, the company is taking certain measures to promote sustainability and eco-friendly practices in its work across the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Their innovative technology and initiatives align with the principles of waste reduction and the circular economy, at large. Their efforts align with visionary decree number (24) of 2021, which was issued by HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum. He is the current ruler, Prime Minister, and Vice President of Dubai.
3DXB is planning to construct 25 percent of buildings with 3D printing technology by 2030 and this announcement has shifted the attention of industry experts towards them.
In order to minimize its carbon footprint and contribute to a greener future, 3DXB has implemented a variety of sustainable practices.
Sustainable Practices in Business
3DXB focuses on incorporating sustainable practices from the very beginning process of 3D printing. They prioritize using locally sourced eco-friendly materials to reduce emissions from transportation. This further supports local supply communities.
Their 3D printing machinery is energy efficient and uses innovative technologies to minimize power consumption during the entire process.
As part of its zero-waste philosophy, 3DXB encourages the recycling or repurposing of excess materials to reduce waste and promote circularity.
Advancing Sustainable Construction Practices
3DXB Group brings 3D printing eco-friendly solutions to the construction industry and its machinery branch is an essential component of the company’s sustainability efforts.
Their advanced 3D printers use precise deposition methods which in turn reduce material waste and ensure optimum material usage. These printers are modular which makes them easy to upgrade and replace thus extending their lifespan. This also minimizes the requirement for a new machine.
Furthermore, remote monitoring capabilities of these printers enable them with real-time analysis and optimization of printing processes. 3D printing enables faster construction results in less time required to complete a project. This further leads to more savings on time and resources.
3DXB’s micro-concrete branch comes to the rescue when the company faces sustainability challenges in the construction industry.
They have developed an eco-friendly micro-concrete formation that would reduce the demands and requirements of traditional cement. This will further help in minimizing carbon emissions of the construction industry.
These mixtures require minimum water that reduces the pressure on local water resources. Moreover, structures made from this cement last longer which means lesser repairs and replacements leading to reduced waste production.
3DXB continuously works on research and development to provide more sustainable materials and printing process. They are researching methods with which they can minimize the emissions more than they are doing now. To make sure that the latest sustainable practices are implemented into their operations, the company is actively collaborating with government, experts, and universities.
Moreover, to compensate for any unavoidable emissions from their operations the company participates actively in the carbon offset programs.
