One of the main problems for products like cosmetic packaging or consumer goods for example are the separability of their components once their useful life is finished. As such, brands & manufacturers encounters an issue that undermine their effort of reducing the carbon footprint of their products..
In collaboration with HB Betanzos we explore an alternative to the traditional
glue used for these types of applications. Using the waste produced as a result of the
manufacturing of wood panels, we developed a sugar-based glue. This glue can
create really strong mechanical bondings while being completely soluble in water.
Thus making it possible separate components in order to be recycled.
