Bona is participating in the STEPS (Sustainable Plastics and Transition Pathways) initiative headed by Lund University – a MISTRA (The Swedish Foundation for Strategic Environmental Research) funded project where one of the objectives are to develop plastics based on bio-raw materials in one form or another. In an unprecedented short time of only ten months, the project has generated a possible consumer product in the form of a floor finish prototype based on fructose.

Bona StepOne application

The floor finish prototype is called “StepOn” and was made possible by a successful combination of academic and industrial competences, and a lot of enthusiasm. To show the potential of the product a public demonstration was made at Lund University earlier this year.

The project was recently highlighted in an article in RETUR, a customer magazine published by SYSAV. (Sysav, South Scania Waste Company, receives, recycles and treats waste from households and industries in south of Sweden).
