We are proud and excited to be joining forces with seven universities & research organizations and ten other companies to research and develop SUStainable BIo-based biNders and COatings in the SUSBINCO co-innovation project. The project is supported by Business Finland with the “Veturiohjelma” funding tool as part of the Bio and Circular Finland Programme, and the project aim is also in line with the mission of the Expand Fibre Ecosystem. The consortium project is lead by Principal Investigator Prof. Chunlin Xu from the Laboratory of Natural Materials Technology at Åbo Akademi University.
At our side, we are joining SUSBINCO with an own parallel project focusing on developing bio-based solutions for our Paper & Packaging Business Unit, and of course our other teams will utilize the results & synergy for sustainable solutions in the Nonwoven and Paints industries as well. The focus is on both binders and barrier coatings, and especially on bio-based raw materials.
The SUSBINCO co-innovation project will run from 1.9.2021-30.11.2023, and our parallel project will run from 30.4.2021-31.10.2023. Have a look at the project partners below!
