3D printing – a sustainability promise or peril?
3D printing has been heralded as a revolutionary technology that can alter the way production is organized across time and space – with important redistributive effects on geography and size of production activities. In her talk, Märtha Rehnberg discusses the future of value chains in a 3D printed world and the environmental crisis in which the technology is embedded. A crisis that presents immense opportunities for those able to redefine “value” in the 21st century mode of production.
