Cambond is a Cambridge-based cleantech start-up company.
Cambond has developed a patented technology platform to transform low-carbon agricultural biomass into a green glue to reduce the application of toxic formaldehyde and oil based multiple-billion pound wood adhesives for wood panel industry.
The biomass is readily available (for example algae, Distiller’s Dry Grains and Solubles – DDGS and any other protein containing biomaterials) and can be used in a manufacturing process that is simple, clean, free of toxic waste and releases 80% less CO2 during manufacture. Additionally, it can bind abundant agricultural waste such as straw fibre, linseed fibre, heap fibre and used coffee ground, bamboo fibre to make light and strong biocomposites for pallets, packaging materials and compostable soil-friendly plates and pots for plant growth. The resulted products will be eco-friendly, cost effective and easier to recycle.
Cambond is a UK Rushlight winning company and supported by European Climate-Kic Accelerator Program based in ICL. In 2017, Cambond is the Shell Springboard Regional Winner for it’s low carbon and sustainable business. The CamCup, the world first made from spent coffee and plant materials, won the Coffee Excellence Award in Coffee Shop Innovation Expo in London on 26th Sept 2018.
