Final Report - ECOBINDERS (Furan and lignin based resins as eco-friendly and durable solutions for wood preservation, panel, board and design products)

Project ID: 11734
Funded under: FP6-NMP

Abstract

This is the final report in the 'Furan and lignin based resins as eco-friendly and sustainable solutions or durable wood, panel & board and design products' (Ecobinders) project. The report covers the main scientific and technological objectives of the report and contractors involved before delving into the work performed and results achieved in the first year.

Based on their research into raw materials they can now propose to the market a series of cost effective novel natural binders, both for thermosetting as thermoplastic processing and with a low environmental footprint as confirmed by life cycle analysis (LCA) performed within the project.

The project also discovered that compounds made of lignin, cellulignin and furan resins have excellent electrical insulation properties. These thermosetting compounds are suited for extrusion and injection moulding and can be used for connectors, spacers and printed circuit boards.
