New BBI JU and EU Horizon 2020-Project PERFECOAT – High Performance Bio-based Functional Coatings for Wood and Decorative Applications

Achieving a climate-neutral Europe by 2050 requires the replacement of fossil-based material with bio-based material on a broad basis. Today, almost 1 million tonnes of paints and coatings are produced in Europe each year, with more than 80 % still being from fossil resources. Even those coatings that do rely on bio-based compounds often have CO₂ footprints little different from the existing coatings. Reducing the impact of these coatings would represent a major advance in Europe’s climate ambitions. To address this challenge the PERFECOAT project will develop and validate a new generation of industrial wood and decorative coatings with significantly more than 25 % bio-based components that meet and even surpass the current quality and sustainability standards.
