MIRRECO has developed 3D printed panels that can be used for the construction of residential and commercial building.

In a statement, MIRRECO said: “Just imagine living and working in buildings that are 3D-printed and available to move into in only a matter of weeks. The floors, walls and roof will all be made using hemp biomass, and the windows will incorporate cutting-edge technology that allows light to pass through glass where it is converted into electricity.”

With the global growth of carbon-neutral infrastructure, MIRRECO is a pioneer in this industry in Australia.

 

 

In the Netherlands, a town called Bosrijk near Eindhoven has become a hub for sustainable, 3D-printed habitable homes. Project Milestone will print 5 homes. The concept was crafted at the Eindhoven University of Technology and offers contractors a sustainable alternative to traditional building methods.
