As a collaborative European research & innovation project looking for the development as well as the scale-up of the production of SUStainable bio-BINDer systems for wood-based panels, SUSBIND is addressing the need for more sustainable bio-based binders used for wood-based panel boards in the European furniture industry. Enzymatic reactions hold great potential to reshape the […]

Meanwhile lets just say that we are proud SUSBIND contributed a whooping 20 entries.
Several thousand putative UPO (unspecific peroxygenases) sequences have been found in genetic databases and fungal genomes, indicating their widespread occurrence in the whole fungal kingdom, but only a handful of UPOs have been characterized so far, and almost nothing substantial is known on their natural function(s). Their reliable heterologous expression remains tricky, despite all recent […]
SUSBIND – Nomination to be one of the most innovative biotech-projects in the EU by the KETBIO project platform! “KETBIO’s experts and its Commercial Committee have short-listed the top 10 biotechnology projects out of more than 300 EU-funded research projects. Please cast your vote online to decide on the most impactful and most promising EU-funded […]
Hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) is a promising bio-derived platform chemical for value-added chemicals. For a sustainable development, the use of renewable resources must be enhanced and more sustainable ways for chemical production must come into focus. Lately, the realization of industrial scale HMF production has gained much more attention. Carbohydrate conversion to HMF HMF combines the structure […]

This years’ Stakeholderdialog, organized by the Austrian BMVIT in cooperation with the Fachverband der Chemischen Industrie Österreichs (FCIO) at the Wirtschaftskammer Wien (WKO), focussed on new applications, innovative products and technologies in the context of wood-utilisation. Highlighting the FTI-initiative “Produktion der Zukunft” as well as projects such as SUSBIND funded by the Bio-Based Industries Joint […]
This year Bio-based Industries Joint Undertaking (BBI JU) invited RTDS to represent SUSBIND during the highly anticipated Stakeholder Forum in Brussels, where around 650 participants from over 48 European countries were expected to visit the exhibition halls of the venue “The EGG” (Brussels Capital Region’s “Centre of Cultural Industries”) near the Brussels South Station. “BBI JU is […]
The Austrian Centre of Industrial Biotechnology (acib GmbH) organized the “European Summit of Industrial Biotechnology” (esib) for the fourth time, gathering the European biotechnology research and industry community on this communication platform for industrial biotechnology. The event not only covers science, but also addresses industrial needs and economic demands, funding resources and political aspirations, and […]
Production of carbohydrate-based binders for wood products The main task of Wood K plus in the SUSBIND project is the development of carbohydrate-based resins and other wood adhesive systems and characterization of the resins will be performed on laboratory scale. The most promising bio-based binders will then be up-scaled to pilot production and used for […]
SUSBIND aims at a bio-based adhesive outperforming current conventional adhesives by means of a significantly lower carbon footprint, while also reducing emissions that may have a negative effect on human health.
