SUSBIND’s collaborative partnership of six research and five industry partners from the EU has made substantial progress this year in developing highly sustainable bio-based binders that will in future replace conventional fossil-based ones currently used for wood-based panel boards in furniture mass products. Towards the Green Deal The SUSBIND binder aims at containing a significantly […]

Research and development in industrial biotechnology contributes to the growing European bioeconomy which according to the European Commission is worth around 614 billion euros and provides approximately 17.5 million jobs. The leading industrial biotech event that represents this sector is the European Forum for Industrial Biotechnology and the Bioeconomy (EFIB) which opens in Vienna next […]
In the “in demand” series, Fraunhofer IGB introduces the people behind the exhibits in the “Bioeconomy” and we are sharing an interview of one of our key scientists from the SUSBIND project. We are conducting our eleventh interview with Dr.-Ing. Susanne Zibek from the Fraunhofer Institute for Interfacial Engineering and Biotechnology IGB in Stuttgart. She […]
The SUSBIND project aims to develop a new bio-based adhesive system for particleboard and medium density fibreboard (MDF) that achieves two main environmental goals: a 5% lower carbon footprint; lower human health impacts compared to the benchmark. In a previous blog, CE Delft explained how progress towards these environmental goals is monitored and how life […]
Our project SUSBIND got featured in the Surface Coatings International (SCI)– Journal of the Oil and Colour Chemists’ Association. We are sharing the original version here with you: “SUSBIND: Carbohydrate conversion to highly reactive intermediate chemicals for adhesives”
SUSBIND develops the chemical syntheses for producing the carbohydrate-based amino-plastic, and other wood resin systems. This will polymerise urea and other monomers using intermediates derived from high-purified carbohydrates during WP1. This allows investigation of the reactions of the carbohydrates during resin synthesis and to test other modification reactions. This should deliver precursors suitable for using […]
The Market-driven Circular & Bioeconomy EU Green Week Partner Event brings together both science and industry of five European projects based on in the fields of low impact forestry & agriculture, low/no fossil chemistry and decarbonised transport. These include BIOVEXO Project – Biopesticides to fight Xylella, SUSFERT – SUStainable FERTtilisers, SUSTAINair – Sustainable aerospace value […]
In the SUSBIND project, 11 partners from science and industry are jointly researching bio-based binders for wood-based materials. Wood K plus leads a work package on the development of a new technology for the production of carbohydrate-based binders. The selection of suitable chemicals as well as the successful implementation of a production process for a […]
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 […]
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 […]
