Safer Finished Products

The wood used in indoor spaces should not endanger the health of consumers. That means eliminating the use of certain potentially harmful additives like formaldehyde.

Reducing Formaldehyde to Improve Our Health

Formaldehyde is the most common volatile organic compound in indoor air. It is an eye, nose and throat irritant recognized since 2004 by the WHO as a known carcinogen of the nasopharynx and nasal cavities.

Green Ultimate™, a Formaldehyde-free Plant-based Adhesive

The formaldehyde emissions from our bio-based resins are 10 times lower than those of UF composite panels (E1) and comparable to emissions from natural wood. With the plant-based Green-Ultimate™ solution, composite wood is as safe as a natural product.

Interior Spaces More Polluted Than Outdoor Spaces

According to a study from the Indoor Air Quality Observatory in France, certain pollutants are only found inside home and their concentrations can be up to 15 higher inside than they are outside.

Solutions for Environmental Challenges

Choosing wood for your interior must be a healthy and responsible decision and this requires for an entirely ecofriendly product design.

Plant-based resin delivers
a carbon footprint that
is over 80 %
lower compared with UF resins.
1.5 ton of CO2
is the equivalent of the manufacture of a ton of UF resin.

Bio-based Resin: An Eco-Friendly Solution

The urea-formaldehyde resin often found in composite wood panels contributes to a larger carbon footprint and therefore to global warming. Replacing it with eco-designed resin helps significantly reduce the environmental impact.

Optimized Local Resources

Evertree relies on a network of local sunflower and rapeseed producers to keep transport-related CO2 emissions to a minimum. To optimize these natural resources, the oilcakes resulting from cooking oil extraction are used to make our adhesive solutions.
