There’s exciting innovation news courtesy of BetaDen Cohort 5.0 alumni ChangeMaker3D, who have delivered the UK’s first 3D-printed toilet pod. The project has been delivered in partnership with the BCIMO Clean Futures Accelerator and with additional backing from Transport for Wales.

BCIMO have provided investment readiness and a base for ChangeMaker3D (whose business aim is to tackle global warming by 'designing out carbon and printing in productivity’) to test and build the UK’s first 3D-printed toilet pod, for use in the rail industry.

ChangeMaker3D’s CEO Natalie Wadley said the project showed that ChangerMaker3D have ‘now demonstrated we can print non-habitable buildings’ and ‘recognise that’s really transferrable’ as well as ‘greener, faster and more cost-effective’ than traditional building practices.

ChangeMaker3D now seek to use its concrete printing technology; which has been developed over a number of years to tackle the issue of environmental consciousness in the construction industry; which accounts for 25% of carbon emissions in the UK.

As part of the ChangeMaker3D mantra to ‘disrupt for good’, Natalie Wadley sees massively positive implications for the construction industry through Changemaker 3D’s technology; and through testing the interface of their technology with traditional building materials wants their tech to be as commonplace on building sites ‘as a digger or forklift’.
