SUSBIND is a collaborative European research and innovation project in the field of bioeconomy with 11 partners from 6 EU countries funded by the Biobased Industry Joint Undertaking (BBI-JU) under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Programme. SUSBIND’s highly sustainable bio-based binders will replace conventional fossil-based binders currently used for wood-based panel boards in furniture mass products. By substituting fossil-based chemicals with those from renewable resources, carbon footprint of furniture products will be reduced. The wood board industry currently relies on the use of fossil-based binders, mainly formaldehyde-based binders. Manufacturers have made several attempts to produce alternative binders from renewable resources, but a bio-based binder at industrial scale does not yet exist. The SUSBIND consortium develops, produces and tests bio-based binders as an alternative to formaldehyde binders currently used for wood-based panel boards in furniture mass products. The goal of the project is to substitute fossil-based chemicals with those from renewable resources. The resulting SUSBIND binder system aims to outperform current fossil-based binders containing a significantly lower carbon footprint, while also reducing formaldehyde emissions. A sustainable and economically viable binder will increase the marketability of bio-based furniture products.
