Each year, 45 million cubic meters of composite wood panels are produced in Europe. More cost-effective than solid wood, they are essential components for the construction and furnishing industries. They are produced using wood shavings and three million tons of petrol-based resins. These resins emit formaldehyde, which not only irritates the nose, skin, throat and eyes but also causes cancer. That is why a plant-based alternative was needed.
Previous bio-based solutions had been foiled by certain limitations: mediocre performance and moisture-resistance as well as a limited availability of raw materials. After several years of research, Evertree succeeded in producing the first safe, high-performance plant-based resin that can be mass produced.
With this innovative adhesive solution as a starting point, the Evertree teams turned their attention to MDF manufacturing with the goal of producing the first environmentally responsible MDF panel bonded with a plant-based resin. The adhesive solution they developed and the way it is applied made it possible to easily manufacture these next-generation MDF panels in existing panel factories.
Evertree’s plant based MDF panel is produced using a dry process and hot-press bonding. It delivers:
Not only do Evertree’s plant based panels deliver on performance, they are also good for human health and the environment.
When you choose a plant-based solution, you are creating a healthier living space. With isocyanate and formaldehyde-free Green Ultimate, these composite wood panels produce the same level of emissions as solid wood (0.01 ppm), which is ten times lower than the EU standard (E1).
Manufacturing Green Ultimate produces 80% less carbon than a UF (urea-formaldehyde) resin. It is made from rapeseed and sunflower seeds that are sourced locally to minimize the impact of transportation on the carbon footprint.
The composite wood panels produced with Green Ultimate deliver technical and water-resistance properties that are on par with panels made with a UF resin.
NEXT® is the world’s first 100% plant-based, high performance, made in France composite wood panel.
Produced with the company Panneaux de Corrèze, it fully complies with our specifications:
Thanks to its unique qualities, NEXT® is the first wood fiber panel suitable for places that welcome a particularly sensitive audience: nurseries, schools, medical facilities and laboratories.
