The Horizon 2020 Project

Bringing EcoMDF to the market

This project receives funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the grant agreement No 822720.

Medium-density fibreboard (MDF) is an engineered wood product  made by breaking down hardwood or softwood residuals into wood fibres, combining it with wax and a resin binder, to form panels.

2.5 million m³ of MDF was used in the construction sector in 2016.

PROBLEMS

MDF is

not recyclable

SVOC emissions

(contains Formaldehyde)

Should be

dumped in landfills

USE OF SUSTAINABLE MATERIALS IN THE CONSTRUCTION SECTOR

The use of MDF goes against the growing use of green materials in the construction sector.

37% of construction

industry think that over

of their projects will

be green by 2018.

60%

Construction companies are looking for sustainable materials that can replace conventional materials.

THE SOLUTION

EcoMDF

We at Biprocel have developed  an eco-sustainable, functional  and design material, called EcoMDF. It is made from cellulosic waste generated by the paper industry, as is 100%  recyclable. It can be used as a direct substitute for MDF in  construction.

Improved Process

(Vs incineration of sludge)

CAPEX OPEX

More environmentally  friendly

Lower

Generates economic returns

Viable in small paper mills

Product Benefits

EU FUNDS USE

The SME Instrument provides full-cycle business innovation support.

Phase 2 helps you develop your business concept further into a market-ready product, service or process aligned with your company's growth strategy.

Activities could, for example, include trials, prototyping, validation, demonstration and testing in real-world conditions, and market replication. If the activity concerns a primarily technological innovation, a Technology Readiness Level (TRL) of 6 or above is envisaged.

Projects will receive between € 0.5 and € 2.5 million but you can request a higher or lower amount, duly justified, when applying.

Projects should normally take 12 to 24 months to complete, but could be longer in exceptional and well-justified cases.
