'Team points' are awarded according to the adequacy of the solution with the type of innovations sought by Team for the Planet. They correspond to the analysis of several factors :

  • impact potential: impact average score > 4 => 0,5 point / if > 4,15 => 1 point.
  • global consistency: all average score of the 6 selection criteria > 2,5 => 1 point.
  • the favourite: % of assessments judge the innovation as a top one to act on a global scale against greenhouse gases > 20% => 1 point
  • the targeting: validation of Team for the Planet scope of action higher than 90% => 0,5 point + innovation level of maturity is enough => 0,5 point
  • social acceptability: semantic analysis score of comments > 0 => 0,5 point/ if > 3500 => 1 point

Detailed project

NB: this form is filled entirely by the ones submitting the innovation.

What is the issue addressed?

In the green building industry, there is currently no bio-based paneling board made from 100% natural bio-based fibers without added resin (glues), let alone a 100% natural flame retardant panel.

How is the problem solved?

Ecovon will bring the first non-additive, bio-based, renewable wood product to market which is naturally flame retardant and antifungal without added binders (glues). The physical properties are better than comparable engineered woods on the market currently.

What is the customer target?

Building industry as doors, door inserts, door frames, wall paneling, flooring, false roofing, partition panels, roofing sheets etc. Furniture industry as table, chairs, wardrobes, computer table, cot, TV cabinets, dining table, table tops.

How is this solution different?

2. Performance: Greater strength, durability and designability, frame retardant, anti-fungi properties over traditional materials 3. Circular Economy: Uniquely reduces waste and increase recyclability 4. Material Health: Does not emit harmful urea formaldehyde nor contain toxic binders or glues
