Embracing Sustainability: Mediterranea's Commitment to Eco-Friendly 3D Printing

At Mediterranea, we are on a mission to redefine the world of 3D printing, design, and sustainability. With an unwavering dedication to the environment, we're proud to introduce a revolutionary line of eco-sustainable products made using an innovative bioplastic known as Polylactic Acid (PLA). Our commitment to sustainability is at the core of our philosophy, and we're excited to share the remarkable journey of how our eco-sustainable PLA products are making a positive difference.

Raw Materials:
One of the cornerstones of our sustainability initiative is the careful selection of raw materials. We source renewable resources like corn, sugarcane, and cassava to produce the lactic acid required for PLA.

Through a natural fermentation process of these raw materials, lactic acid is produced, setting the stage for the creation of our eco-friendly bioplastic.

Lactic acid molecules are skillfully polymerized to form long chains of Polylactic Acid, the building block of our sustainable 3D printing materials.

These PLA chains are then transformed into small pellets through an extrusion process, making them ready for further processing. The material used for Mediterranea products is an eco-sustainable plastic with the addition of natural dyes.

Bioplastic Advantages:
Our PLA stands out as a truly sustainable alternative. Derived from organic content, it is not petroleum-based, ensuring compliance with stringent standards.

Industrial Composting:
PLA is compostable, especially in municipal and industrial composting facilities where available. This ensures that our products return to the earth in an eco-friendly manner.

Safety is a top priority. Our PLA biopolymer is suitable for food contact applications, highlighting its versatility and compliance with rigorous standards.

Chemical Control Law Compliance:
We want you to know that PLA is safe for human health and the environment. It meets all necessary compliance standards, guaranteeing that our products pose no unreasonable risks associated with chemical substances.

Mediterranea's Commitment:
Our furnishings and accessories are thoughtfully designed to leave no negative footprint on the environment while enhancing modern living spaces and experiences. At Mediterranea, we believe that innovation and sustainability go hand in hand. By offering products that not only stand out in design but are also eco-sustainable, we aim to make a real difference.
