Cambond resins are currently being manufactured in China. Cambond is looking to develop manufacturing facilities in the UK. Samples and 1-10 tonnes volumes are readily available for trials in the UK and EU.
Cambond has made a range of biocomposites. Bamboo and straw based panels are currently being manufactured in China. Cambond is looking to develop manufacturing facilities in the UK and EU.
Cambond polymer/resin/biomass composites have been produced in R&D facilities. Cambond is undertaking commercial development of its coffee-Camposite© for ‘wasbeans’ cups in the UK.
The plastics industry is indispensable for modern life. The industry is oil based and generates millions of tonnes of CO2. There is rising global concern over the impact of plastics on the environment. Cambond has developed a plant based (DDGS) resin that can be combined with a range of biomass fibres and polymers to make Camposite©, an environmentally superior alternative to plastics.
Camposite© provides a solution to these issues. The resin contains protein and fats which improve the technical qualities for manufacturing, they are largely plant based and so enjoy the commercial advantage of a lower cost feedstock. In addition, scale up of supply is feasible as biomass by products from agriculture are available all over the world in very large quantities.
Camposite© could provide a significant environmental benefit very quickly as it could replace plastics in existing manufacturing processes which use moulding and extrusion to make a wide range of products. Take up of the technology would be enhanced because Camposite© can be manufactured and supplied to manufacturers for LESS than the cost of their current virgin plastics.
CAMCUP AND CUPBOARD
CamCup, a reusable coffee cup is made from used coffee ground, plant fibres and bioresin and Cupboard is made from disposable coffee cups which can be turned into furniture. This forms a closed loop for the coffee shop industry concerning about disposable coffee cup global issue.
