Environmental benefits of late-stage customization and on-demand printing

Anyone engaging seriously with the topic of sustainability will likely be amazed at the sheer scale of untapped potential. It’s no longer just a question of how much CO2 can be avoided, but in many cases simply looking at the issue reveals previously hidden costs. Blister production in the pharma industry provides an excellent example of how these potential savings can be harnessed more effectively – for the benefit of businesses and the environment.
