SuperValu To Use 3D Printing To Produce Light Fittings Made From CDs

SuperValu has announced that it will produce its light fittings for its network of 223 stores from recycled CDs using 3D Printing technology.

The retailer said that it has partnered with two Irish companies – Domus and Pro Light Design & Technology to rollout the recycled and 3D Printed Luminaires, with installations completed in 40 stores to date with a larger rollout to be completed this year.

“Today’s announcement that we are changing all our light fittings to ones made from recycled materials such as old CDs is just one part of a bigger plan that we will be rolling out this year," said Ian Allen, managing director, SuperValu.

"We have already made real progress like changing our fruit and veg bags so that they are compostable and half of our stores running on green electricity generated from renewable resources. But we know that we have more to do and among our targets for 2021, we plan to increase the amount of loose produce we sell, install solar panels on more of our stores and reduce fleet emissions,” he added.
