Profile: Cambond Ltd was incorporated in 2014 and is based at the Cambridge Future Business Centre.

Cambond has developed a patented technology platform to transform low-carbon agricultural biomass waste into a green glue to reduce the application of toxic formaldehyde and oil based multiple-billion pound wood adhesives for wood panel industry.

The company can also bind abundant agricultural waste such as straw fibre, used coffee ground and disposable coffee cups to make value added light and strong biocomposites for pallets, packaging, furniture and compostable pots.
