Bioeconomic Atlas NCA introduces clusters, companies and institutions from the NCA membership base dedicated to using renewable biological resources (RBS) for innovative technologies and products.
Cluster of Czech Furniture Manufacturers
The Cluster of Czech Furniture Manufacturers, together with 51 members, is the largest cluster organisation focusing on the furniture and woodworking industry and interior design. Since its establishment in 2006, the cluster has been supporting its member companies' international competitiveness and economic growth by emphasising research development, development and innovation, community in the furniture industry, educational activities and strengthening the internationalisation of the cluster. The cluster is involved in research, experimental development and innovation projects supported by public funds or promotes such projects. As part of cluster activities, the cluster also builds a shared infrastructure to help its members minimise R&D&I costs. The Cluster of Czech Furniture Manufacturers is a leader of cluster initiatives; it is an open organisation that can be joined by any Czech furniture maker who identifies with the cluster's goals and vision.
The cluster is not lagging behind in the field of bioeconomy and circular economy. In the project "Greening of production", which focused on the development of innovative materials using secondary and recycled materials from textile and wood production and modern technologies reducing the ecological intensity of production, new products were created from renewable biological resources:
- The sandwich panel with improved mechanical properties is a cross-linked sandwich composite panel with a core of recycled or secondary textile raw material with an antibacterial coating characterised by low weight while maintaining strength with increased resistance to bending.
Made of five layers of BK veneer scraps or veneer sheets and two layers of glass fabric
- A sandwich panel with improved acoustic properties is a sandwich composite material based on overlaid panels made from recycled and secondary raw materials that can be used as a full replacement for existing systems, mainly due to their good sound insulation properties in the interior, strength and lightweight.
Made of BK joinery plywood and PES non-woven fabric
