– By using components such as oat husk, wheat bran, fruit peels, shrimp shells and combining these with a bio based catalyst, OrganoClick has developed OC-Bile Binder, a biobased and home compostable binder that can be used in nonwoven applications.

By clear selection of biopolymers from residual flows in the food industry, different degrees of softness and stiffness can be achieved while improving strength. OrganoClick‘s products can replace the plastic based binders used in nonwoven, technical textiles, biocomposites and specialty papers.

The innovation prize is awarded OrganoClick under their contribution to help the industry move away from oil-based resources. Using more biobased resources, when possible, is a step in the rigth direction.
