PERFECOAT Webinar “Safety and Sustainability – Assessments and Used Methodology“

June 10 @ 13:00 - 14:00

Virtual Event Virtual Event

In the penultimate episode of the five-piece webinar series of the CBE JU funded research project PERFECOAT the experts will give insights about assessments and used methodology in regards to safety and sustainability of the developed bio-based compounds for sustainable paints and coatings.

When developing novel bio-based solutions, safety and sustainability of bio-based paint and coating products for users and environment mark a top priority. Within the last three years, the partners involved in the EU-funed PERFECOAT project successfully generated and examined  a broad variety bio-based paint and coating ingredients. These include a selection of binders made from, e.g., modified alginates (SINTEF), xanthan (Technical University Munich), and xylan (Celignis) derived from different biomass resources like agricultural residues, e.g., poplar wood, beech wood, wheat straw, and late cut grass. Furthermore, the team developed different formulations for red pigments and dyes as well as other colours (e.g., green and purple) produced from yeast and fungi. To allow for the modification of specific properties like self-healing surfaces and fire resistance, fillers and functional nano materials were developed from microbial biomass.

All these ingredients were tested with regard to their performance, requirements and properties in formulations of three specific use-cases:

  • high-volume UV-curable clear coatings,
  • waterborne trim paints for DIY, and
  • waterborne wall paints. 
All materials developed in PERFECOAT need to meet highest safety and sustainability standards for users and environment. The project will therefore quantitatively demonstrate the sustainability improvements achieved with bio-based solutions compared to conventional fossil-based paints and coatings. This was done by establishing a framework for life cycle assessment (LCA), life cycle costing (LCC), end-of-life strategy, and societal impact of the developed products and processes on specific communities and society at large. A social impact assessment and market study started early in the project and secure that all solutions match the criteria of economic feasibility and societal acceptance.
The assessment and methodology used are subjects to this webinar.
