Additive manufacturing (AM) processes enable new designs and part functions through a layered structure and the use of specifi c materials. In the wake of climate change, we have decided to investigate how AM technologies can be used to produce parts from bio-based residual/waste material, provide an up-cycling strategy for these materials and at the same time exploit their individual properties. The Binder Jetting (BJ) and Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) technologies are particularly interesting from this perspective, as different materials can be used as fi llers in combination with biodegradable thermoplastics as binders. In this study we present the concept of manufacturing parts from peach kernels, which are ground to powder in combination with polyvinyl alcohol (PVA). Parts made of such materials show a high decomposition rate when exposed to water. This makes them ideal for applications such as disposable packaging or products with a short service life. The aim of the research is to determine the feasibility of using these materials in BJ and FFF.
