SUSBIND Industry Online Seminar: “From science to production – achievements so far”

SUSBIND is proud to announce its upcoming Industry Online seminar: “From science to production – achievements so far” that will take place on May 18, 2022 from 10:10 to 11:50 CEST. The seminar will showcase the best of project results and findings from our five European industry partners that develop and test bio-based furniture binders for furniture.

As the climate changes, the furniture of the future will have to be sustainable, multi-functional and efficient and today’s manufacturers are already starting to explore these areas, paving the way for future developments. The wood board industry already having the circular economy in mind currently relies on the use of mainly fossil-based binders, largely formaldehyde-based binders. A number of initiatives are underway to produce alternative binders from renewable resources, but a bio-based binder at industrial scale does not yet exist.

SUSBIND’s collaborative partnership of six research and five industry partners has made substantial progress 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.

The SUSBIND consortium is looking at meeting the future needs and constraints of the furniture industry, consumers and regulatory bodies to reduce formaldehyde emissions across the furniture value chain, as well contributing to decarbonisation of the industry.

The aim of this online seminar is to share experience and present the best of SUSBIND industry project results, to open debates for future trends as well as to attract attention of relevant stakeholders.
