3D-Fuel and Algix form joint venture on algae based filament

3D Fuel, a manufacturer of 3D printer filament, has announced the launch of its algae based 3D Printer filament through a Joint Venture with ALGIX, LLC. ALGIX is a clean technology company that produces sustainable plastic products utilizing algae from aquaculture and water treatment technologies. "Our Joint Venture with ALGIX opens an entirely new realm of possibilities for us and the 3D Printing market. We are producing high quality filaments, exceeding the typical industry standard. With our efforts being focused on environmental friendliness, some of the exciting product lines we will be introducing to the market in the coming months have the ability to completely change how users of 3D Printers view their printing materials and their impact on the environment. We are positioned to become the company that is not only setting the standards of quality for printer filaments but setting the standards in how those materials impact the world we live in." says 3D-Fuel co-founder Matthew Stegall.
 
ALGIX, which is a leader in producing sustainable bio-plastic composites, is equally excited about its JV partnership with 3D Fuel in producing a more environmentally friendly 3D printer filament. "We saw 3D Fuel as an emerging leader in this industry who wanted to add a more earth friendly filament to its core product offering, which we are able to provide through our Solaplast algae filament and sustainable business practices," says Michael Van Drunen, C.E.O. of ALGIX. "Both companies commitment to excellence in both manufacturing and research and development was a clear indicator that our Joint Venture would be a huge success. With our core values being very synergistic, we know our customers will see the difference in not just our product offerings, but the principles in our business practices that we bring to the 3D printing market."
