Award winning science that’s tough on pollution and plastics and kind to the planet

Cambond offers a sustainable solution to one of the biggest environmental problems of our time, adhesives which harm the environment.

Adhesives are a multi-billion pound industry, used in millions of applications from cosmetics to plastics, packaging, clothes, furniture and building materials.

Traditional adhesives are derived from oil and require large amounts of energy, raising concerns about sustainability and pollution.

They also contain formaldehyde, a known cause of cancer, and a chemical which is becoming increasingly regulated and difficult to recycle.

In contrast, our award winning bio-resin removes the need for oil extraction and the use of dangerous chemicals, and is completely carbon neutral and sustainable. It’s made from brewing industry waste along with algae, all powerfully bonded together with our special linking agent.

Our process cuts emissions of CO2, the main greenhouse gas, by 80 per cent.

The Cambond resin can also be used for packaging in preference to conventional plastics, making a major contribution to cutting pollution.

It demonstrates equal or superior performance to traditional adhesives, and it’s a less expensive option than plastics.

We’ve received a range of commendations for our work, including winning the Institute For Manufacturing’s Sustainable Packaging Challenge and the Cambridge News award for top Innovative Company. Cambond has also been a finalist in the Royal Society of Chemistry’s Emerging Technology Competition, and Cambridge Independent newspaper’s Science and Technology and 21 To Watch Awards.
