Enzymatic Bonding of Lignocellulosic Materials


The synthetic adhesives used in the manufacture of fibreboard cause problems with both emissions and waste. instead one can use the enzyme systems naturally responsible for biosynthesis and coupling of wood cells. A new project describe how the enzymes are used in practice and how the technology can be transferred from the laboratory to industry. The technology is the first step towards a general method that will reduce the environmental impact of adhesives in fireboard.
