 Project objective

Adhesive bookbinding is the process of connecting individual pages of a book into a single volume with glue. Technologies used world-wide in this part of the post-press market have not changed significantly since 70 years. 97% of books world-wide are bound with machinery using hot melt glue with negative effects on the environment, book binding companies and readers.

After more than 30 years of experience in book binding and bonding of fiber material, the German Ribler GmbH has taken the lead in R&D1 for environmental friendly and non-toxic adhesives and accordingly the development of high quality, adhesive bookbinding technology. Through our outstanding chemical expertise and by applying industrial biotechnology, we developed a patented process, in which paper fibres are isolated, and then activated with a biogenic component. Our unique “Ribler cold glue dispersion” connects the pages with an unreached flexibility and resistance, leading to real 180° lay flat books, for all sorts of paper materials. Ribler's technology is eco-labeled with zero energy and zero emission. We are proud and ambitious and aim to change the book binding world and prepare for scaling and global sales. SME Instrument Phase 1 will deliver final feasibility steps to successfully enter the market and scale up from small special mechanical engineering & prototyping to serial production and world-wide sales. Until 2023, we expect our company to grow fast: 85 new jobs and world-wide revenue of 5 m€ and 1,3 m€ profit and to become the technical market leader in the BoD Books-on-demand market for perfect binders.
