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.
