Adhesive
Casein Adhesives
Casein adhesives date back to the early 1900's. Casein is a natural protein derived from milk by-products and was the standard bonding agent for wood products before synthetic resins and adhesives came of age. Caseins are still valued by manufacturers for their durability, water resistance and non-toxicity."

Primer
Casein Primers
"Casein Primer is a transparent primer to dilute with water. It is used indoor prior to any Kreidezeit finish such as clay paints or lime paints, plasters, etc. Its binder is casein. The casein primer aims to saturate the untreated surfaces like clay plasters, lime plasters, lime based cement plasters and gypsum plasters, plasterboards, stone and concrete and to make it uniform to ensure a good performance of subsequent finish."

Adhesive
National Casein
"The products which National Casein® markets and sells to the woodworking, furniture, millwork and packaging industries are the most complete line of adhesives offered by any adhesive company. These products include polyvinyl crosslinks which provide Type I and Type II water resistant bond characteristics, polyvinyl assembly adhesives, liquid and powder urea resins adhesives and a wide variety of powder adhesives including casein, melamine, melamine-urea blends, a straight urea powder adhesive, decorative paper adhesive, and vinyl film laminating adhesives."

Glue
Kaseinlim
"Kaseinlim 2628 is a middle-viscous casein-based glue with high moisture resistance and good gluing properties. Kaseinlim 2628 is well suited to lamination of wood and paper."

Bio degradable foam made from milk
Researchers develop biodegradable foam using clay and casein "Eco Factor: Strong biodegradable foam made from milk and clay.

Until now, we have seen harmful form being used for packaging, insulation or in furniture cushions, but here is an international team of scientists who wish to give the world a green alternative. The researchers have recently developed a biodegradable foam using clay and casein. Casein is a naturally-occurring protein in cow’s milk that has already been in some adhesives and paper coatings.

Press Board
High Density Casein Laminated Pressboard
"Figeholm HDLC - Material Specification Figeholm Elboard HDLC High Density Casein Laminated Pressboard Material specification Standard IEC 60763 Type LB.3.1 A.2 Figeholm Typical Values"

Wood Finish
Vermont Natural Coatings
"Vermont Natural Coatings patented PolyWhey technology has emerged as a new category of wood finish; delivering easy-to-use products that have established the highest performance and environmental standards. We use whey protein, a byproduct of cheese making, to displace toxic ingredients found in traditional finishes."

Flooring
Ecolibrium
"Ecolibrium Flooring BASE-ECOLIBRIUM- CLAY- 4"x 4' length Ecolibrium Bio-Based Wall Base is made of walnut and oyster shells making Ecolibrium one of the most sustainable choices on the market. It’s a one-of-a-kind solution that complements any design. And that makes it worthy of a second glance. By combining renewable materials like walnut shells and oyster shells in an innovative manufacturing process, we were able to create a highly sustainable, high-performance wall base."

Construction Material
Durmond
"Duralmond is a composite material obtained by mixing natural and synthetic resins, crushed almond shells and other additives. After a polymerisation process the mixture is poured into a mould and baked under pressure, giving its rigid final finish. Duralmond can be moulded into any form or texture, providing a unique material for decorative surfaces and soffits. In this way, a natural waste product such as almond shells, combined with a number of biodegradable and recyclable products can, through industrial moulding techniques, acquire forms, mimic textures and give free reign to the imagination of designers and architects."

Particle Board
Kokoboard Peanut Shell Board
Kokoboard Peanut Shell is a bio-composite board, made of post-harvest waste. Peanut Shells are turned into particle boards by a hot press procedure and the use of a formaldehyde-free adhesive. The product takes little energy to produce and reduces CO2 emissions by offering farmers an alternative to the usual burning of harvest waste."

Countertop
Nuxite
Nuxite is made in Minneapolis from crushed walnut shells suspended in a resin binder. Walnut shells are a sustainable and renewable byproduct of annual walnut food crop harvests. They impart their characteristics of super high density, low absorption, and light weight to Nuxite."

Flooring Product
"ECO-RWS
ECO-RWS is a seamless fluid applied decorative flooring system comprised of recycled walnut shells and VOC compliant polymers. The system is designed to create an aesthetically pleasing wear surface that is extremely durable with a wide range of finish textures."

The leaves are dried and fastened to straighten them out and let us work with them, the leaves stick to the plaster panels with resin. The resin makes the leaves become infected, harden and be waterproof."
