IKEA leader to keynote International Wood Adhesives Conference

from FPS

Johan Bruck, IKEA's Deputy Material and Innovation Leader in Polymers, will present IKEA's perspective and strategic direction for the wood adhesives used in their products — both as brand owner, as well as furniture producer. He will explain IKEA's focus to move towards a fossil-free adhesive base while retaining the same expectations of form, function and cost as present solutions — BUT with an advantage of sustainable and healthy products. IKEA plans to build the change in a stepwise approach with the expectation to achieve their objectives by 2030.

Held once every four years, the International Conference on Wood Adhesives is the premier technical conference on advances in adhesion of wood and biomass. The latest one takes place Oct. 25-27 in Atlanta. The conference is being organized through a partnership between the USDA Forest Products Laboratory, the Wood-Based Composites Center and the Forest Products Society and continues to be the main forum for interchange of knowledge between industry and researchers around the world working in the fields of wood and biomass adhesion.
