Sustainable waste-derived adhesive for engineered-wood boards

BindEthics have developed innovative food waste-derived Bio-adhesives to replace formaldehyde-based glues used to make engineered-wood products such as furniture. Formaldehyde-based adhesives, the industry standard, are toxic, carcinogenic, and the reason why wood panels are not recyclable. Their sustainable solution, not derived from fossil fuels, reduces the CO2 footprint by 86%.
