To investigate the use of environmentally sound glues for project elements in support of other projects.

Summary of Report

  • An environmentally sound approach was an integral part of the project objectives.
  • It was therefore decided to investigate environmentally sound glues for use in any project which would need glue as part of its design.
  • It became clear, at the mid-point of the research, that most projects could design out the need for glues. It was therefore decided to contribute a think piece on environmental glues only. This is based mainly on work done by Bjørn Berge of Gaia Norway.
