Cutting pollution and plastics, enhancing 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 that 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%.

We have CAMBOND, CAMPOSITE, WASWARE trademark to build our green brands for our products.

CAMBOND® RESIN

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 don’t just expect you to take our word for the quality of our work. We’d love you to give it a try.

Samples of Cambond adhesive of 1-10 tonnes in volume are available for trials in the UK and EU.

Our resin is currently being manufactured in China, although we are looking to develop facilities in the UK. Test our bioresin and make some panels like this for yourself!

BIOCOMPOSITES

Cambond resin can be combined with many types of biomass such as straw, oat husks, and peanut shells, along with polymers, to form biocomposites.

We call them Camposite® and offer a range including bamboo- and straw-based building panels as an alternative to using wood.

Cambond is also carrying out commercial development of its coffee-Camposite for ‘wasbeans’ cups. Camposites offer significant environmental benefits very quickly, as they can be used to make a wide range of products.

Camposites contain protein and fats which improve the technical qualities for manufacturing.

Excitingly, laboratory trials and development work have shown our Camposites could also become an environmentally superior alternative to plastics.

PLASTIC REPLACEMENTS

The raw materials for our Camposites are largely derived from plants, and so are less expensive than traditional oil-based plastics.

Importantly, rapid scaling up of supply is relatively straightforward as biomass by-products from agriculture are available in large quantities across the world.

Camposites can also be manufactured and supplied for between 5 and 10% LESS than the cost of current virgin plastics.

As we sometimes say – what’s not to like?!

CAMCUP AND CUPBOARD

CamCup is a reusable coffee cup made from used coffee ground, plant fibres and our adhesive.

Cupboard is a material made from disposable coffee cups, which can be turned into furniture. This pair form an environmentally friendly and attractive alternative to traditional cups, plates, bowls and furnishings for the hospitality industry.

Construction boards containing no formaldehyde

By replacing the urea-formaldehyde resins currently used within the wood panel industry with our bio-resin, you can create safer and healthier construction boards. No toxic particles will be released into the air, removing the threat of health issues, and creating a healthier environment for people to live and work in.

Manufacturing Processes

We have set up a pilot plant to manufacture DDGS based DIGLUE in China to be able to work with small wood panel companies to carry our MVP trials. We have made OSB, Plywood, MDF to meet industrial standards.

Homeware

We have set up a JV to make bioplastic using our bio adhesive to make 0-40% plastic containing pellets for making home-ware products to reduce the use of plastic. We have made re-usable coffee cups from spent coffee ground, beer cups made from beer spent grain.

Pallets

We can make pallets using our resin together with agricultural waste to make 100% bio-degradable pallets for packaging and shipping.

Agritech

Vertical Farming

We can apply our resin to the agriculture sector for regenerative agriculture, to reduce the amount of damage dealt to crops through the use of seed coatings and vertical farming. This will reduce the agriculture waste and plastics currently being used within the sector, using food waste as a valuable resource instead of letting it go to landfill and contributing to greenhouse gas emissions.

Passion is what drives us

We're not just determined about doing great work. We also love doing it.
