Ravi Toor Wins August's Shell LiveWIRE Smarter Future Award!


Mon, 05 October 2015

Ravi Toor won August’s Shell LiveWIRE Smarter Future Award for his business, Filamentive.
Filamentive is a sustainable 3D printing material brand. Manufactured in Europe, they differentiate from the rest by offering consumables with environmental credentials such as a low carbon footprint and advocate degradable bioplastics as opposed to harmful alternatives. It is estimated that only 1-3% of all plastics used are recycled. The material is almost always non-biodegradable. Already this year (as of August 2015) over 6 million tons of plastic waste has been dumped in oceans. Filamentive are aiming to reduce this problem by converting this waste into usable 3D printing filament, which can then be purchased individually by hobbyists, schools, businesses and retailers.
Commiserations to Zakari Ajia (GreenPad Enterprise), Risha Jindal (DIGIMEAL), Filippo Massarelli (Ikinen) and Ebube Nwankwo (Altitude Tech) who were shortlisted but did not win this time and are encouraged to reapply.
