Today, around 875 billion disposable cleaning wipes (sachets, wipes) are produced and used worldwide every year with ascending trend. The amount of disposable wipes produced in 2018 was over 1.4 million tons, accounting for a not insignificant portion of the total 400 million tons of plastic waste in 2018 alone. And these huge amounts of plastic waste are generated year after year. Which means that much of it ends up in our rivers and oceans, to the suffering of us humans, animals and our environment.
Over 4 billion people in the world wear eyeglasses, worldwide there are currently about 4 billion Smartphones, which is expected to climb over the next few years. Keeping these surfaces clean nowadays generates a lot of waste and is not done efficiently.
In this day and age, we are particularly sensitive to the issue of hygiene against viruses and bacteria. It doesn’t matter whether we are talking about the sensitive surfaces of our smartphones or notebooks, or the disinfection of our hands after unavoidable contact with surfaces in public transport, ticket machines, ATMs, elevators or shopping carts. We lack a solution for disinfecting sensitive surfaces and hands that can be used quickly, cost-effectively and efficiently at any time.
3D printing is the future and is also used for production purposes. Sustainable technology is created both from recyclable and renewable materials and as a manufacturing process that reduces weight, waste and transportation. Because the 3D printer only uses the material needed for the object, there is virtually no waste during printing. No moulds and almost no auxiliary materials are required. The production of components becomes not only more ecological, but also more cost-effective due to the reduced consumption of raw materials. For the few internal components of our products we use plant-based UV resin, which is on the one hand biodegradable and on the other hand completely made of soybean oil.
