Innovation is a long process that requires both expertise and ideals. This is borne out by Evertree’s story: to make our ambitious plans a reality, we needed time, talent and new vision for the world.
In a garage outside of Philadelphia in 2010, two American researchers had the idea to test the properties of oilcakes to develop a plant-based adhesive that could replace petrol-based resins. The first seeds of the project were planted.
It took five years of work for the first sprouts to appear. The prototype for a bio-based additive was developed. This solution reduced fossil resins used in wood panels by 20%. It was time to take the revolution to an industrial scale.
The project required a graft to reach its goal. The Avril Group, the French market leader in the vegetable oil and protein industry, joined forces with Bpifrance to create Evertree. The dynamic young team set itself the task of providing the composite wood industry with the means to transition to plant-based solutions. With a solid foundation in place, Evertree now had everything it needed to realize its ambition and deliver on its commitments.
Two innovative solutions for the composite wood industry are debuted: Green Ultimate, the world’s first formaldehyde- and isocyanate-free plant-based adhesive solution, and Green Boost, a bio-based additive that reduces the amount of traditional resins used in composite wood panels. Evertree had succeeded in its aims: to offer industrial bio-based adhesive solutions without sacrificing performance.
The Green by Evertree Project marked the start of a new era. Evertree opened itself up to partnerships with other organizations that share its values and its commitment to safe, environmentally responsible production that is better for our health and the environment.
The world’s first ever bio-based composite wood panel was produced in partnership with Panneaux de Corrèze. This collaboration proves that it is possible to design high-performance products that are also safe and environmentally responsible. It is the first application of the Green by Evertree Project.
