Chemical Insights, an Institute of Underwriters Laboratories, announced today its research on the human health risks associated with 3D printer emissions has received a Top Project of the Year Award in the elite Environment + Energy Leader Awards program. The program’s expert judges consider this study a prime example of the important work being done today in the fields of energy and environmental management.

3D printers have been gaining popularity, but they also pose a human health concern from the potential release of volatile organic chemicals and ultrafine particles into the air. Chemical Insights partnered with the Georgia Institute of Technology to perform an in-depth, two-year study to mitigate indoor air pollution risks and advance the availability of low emission 3D printers.

The research developed methodology to identify and assess toxicity risks of the emissions released during 3D printer operation. As a result, the first ANSI Standard, A...
