BBI JU Title:
SUSBIND - Development and pilot production of SUStainable bio BINDer systems for wood based panels
Project Type:
Project Duration:
2018 – 2022 |
Project lead:
RTDS (Austria)

Relevance to the SDG

SUSBIND will develop novel bio-based binders as alternative to fossil-based binder currently used in the production of wood-based panel board.

The wood board industry currently relies on the use of fossil-based binders, mainly formaldehyde-based binders. Upcoming regulations foresee reduced formaldehyde emissions or its elimination from furniture due to its effects on indoor air-quality.
