We look forward to continue supporting BuildAir as they grow and expand through these new markets and opportunities!
Medium Density Fibreboard (MDF) is one of the most common materials used for construction purposes. Unfortunately, this material is not recyclable and is generally incinerated at the end of the product lifecycle. The incineration of MDF produces a high amount of Semi-volatile Organic Compound (SCOC) emissions.
Biprocel, a spin off from the UPC, have developed a new, eco-sustainable material named eco-MDF. The manufacturing of this innovative product only requires water, cellulosic waste, pressure and heat. Its impressive strength, durability, and designability properties make eco-MDF the perfect alternative to MDF for the construction industry.
Inveniam supported Biprocel in the presentation of the project for the Phase II of the SME Instrument, including support to the business planning, developing the feasibility study, finding
partners for industrial demonstration and all aspects of writing the proposal and planning the phase 2 project. We also supported Biprocel to develop and deliver the pitch to the commission in the interview stage of the evaluation.
Biprocel have been awarded 1.2M€ funding in the March 2018 phase 2 cutoff and will use the funding to scale up the production of eco-MDF and demonstrate the characteristics of the new material to the construction industry. At Inveniam, we are happy to see a project with such a high potential impact recieve funding and look forward to hearing much more about Eco-MDF in the future.
