PERFECOAT High Performance Bio-based Functional Coatings for Wood and Decorative Applications


Presentation held on 25 June 2024 at the European Biomass Conference 2023. 

The overarching objective of the PERFECOAT project is to develop novel sustainable coatings that will ultimately be available to the public. Within this, the project will pursue a number of specific objectives.

  • From an environmental perspective, the PERFECOAT project will contribute to reducing Europe’s greenhouse gas emissions by developing new industrial bio-based coatings for wood with more than 25% of bio-based components produced from climate neutral sources and processes.
  • From an economic perspective, the PERFECOAT project will help to prepare the coating market for new formulations that will be of at least equal performance than existing fossil-based products.
  • From a social perspective, the project will demonstrate the potential for creating new job opportunities in the bio-based sector in rural and coastal areas, where urban migration remains a challenge.

In addition, the project will enhance European leadership in the biotechnology sector and strengthen the EU’s leadership in adopting renewables.
