China Using Bone Powder For 3D-Printing

Did this article just say China is using bone powder for 3D-printing? Unless you were using the patient's own bones, wouldn't rejection still be a big problem?

This revolutionary project can be found in the biomedical building of the university’s huge campus, where a high-precision 3D printer is steadily manufacturing solid bone, one layer at a time, without metal components. So far remarkable successes have been achieved by 3D printing a combination of very fine bone powder and a biological glue, to form complete animal bones.
