A Graduate Internship Grant from the Royal Society of Chemistry

28 Sept 2021 Cambridge

We’re very excited to have received a graduate internship grant from the Royal Society of Chemistry on 28th Sept.

Cambond has invented a formaldehyde-free bioadhesive. As it’s made from plant-based resources and food waste, 40-60% of CO2 can be reduced compared to the traditional oil-based resin. The bioadhesive consists of Algae and bioethanol by-products as its main ingredients. The benefits taken from this new product are as below:

  • An abundant organic resource such as algae biomass: Algae can be planted by humans with the fast-growing speed, re-splitting after 9 to 12 hours. And it can produce three times the quantity of biomass and be harvested within 24 hours. Due to its nature, humans can plant it all over the year – 365 days without competing with agricultural land. It also can be a pollution problem in many lakes, oceans, and rivers. 
  • Abundant Food & Drink waste: The whiskey distiller’s waste contains protein and has been used as an animal feed with low value. 
  • Sustainability with low carbon emission: Biomass is sustainable with higher output, which is made from agricultural residuals of maize, wheat, soy, rapeseed, oil palm, and sugar beet, etc. Biomass has unbelievable zero waste, and all the roots and stems can be used to make non-wood fibre-based boards. There is also zero competition with agricultural crop-growing land. 
  • Zero harmful to the human body. All the ingredients are from natural sources, which provide 100% confidence in non-toxicity, and this has already been tested and proven.
  • Reduce and replace plastics with by-products from agricultural and food supply chains to turn waste into valuable products. 

This grant means we will be able to enforce our effort to develop our biodegradable material for packaging and textile applications to reduce the impact of Polymer in Liquid Formulations (PLFs) on our environment.

The Job advertisement will be listed in Chemistry World Jobs for Cambond to search for a talent to join the NIAB Eastern AgriTech Innovation Hub team to commit ourselves to net-zero emission by 2030 for our low carbon business.

If you are interested in the opportunity, please contact Dr Xiaobin Zhao for further information.
