Oil plant-based binder for wood and composite materials

Binder based on oil plant residues for the production of wood and composite materials

To produce wood-based composites urea-formaldehyde resin is the most widely used binder. However, UF resins are susceptible to hydrolysis and wood-based materials will thus emit formaldehyde. Scientists at the University of Göttingen, Germany developed an alternative formaldehyde-free binder based on oil plant residues (pomace).
