News from Nabore®

NABORE is finalist of the German Sustainability Award Enterprise 2024

We are awarded as finalist of the “Deutscher Nachhaltigkeitspreis” as a pioneer of transformation in the German economy.

Thank you again to the expert jury of the “Deutscher Nachhaltigkeitspreis” for acknowledging the results of our hard-working team.

Thank you to our highly specialized team! A lot of experience, visionary thinking, precise, technological knowledge and production processes are the basis of our work.

NABORE proudly stands for sustainability and circular economy.

The NABORE COLLECTION wins 1st place in the GDA (German Design Award) in the category Excellent Product Design Furniture.

The collection comprises design products made from leather recycling materials by NABORE. This forward-thinking product concept demonstrates diversity and scalability in design and manufacturing. Leather is one of humanity’s most durable natural materials and one of the oldest forms of upcycling. However, the leather industry generates approximately 1 billion square meters of offcuts annually. Previously discarded, NABORE now collects these valuable leather scraps and transforms them into recyclable materials using its unique Zero Waste technology.

tbSTUDIO has been supporting the development of materials for furniture and interior design for years. „Outstanding design today means more than ever providing answers to the challenges of our time“ – under this motto, the German Design Award selects its winners. The jury’s reasoning for the 1st place:

The „NABORE COLLECTION“ by tbSTUDIO impressively demonstrates how industry leather scraps are recycled and turned into attractive products. A sustainable concept that raises awareness for the leather resource.

This week is the kick-off of the Circularity Weeks in Munich!

NABORE has been nominated as a pioneer of transformation in the German economy.

The expert jury has selected our company as a pioneer in the transformation of our industry. The German Sustainability Award will be presented this year to particularly exemplary companies in their sectors, in collaboration with the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, and Nuclear Safety (BMU) and the German Chambers of Commerce and Industry (DIHK).

We will find out in September whether we are among the finalists. The award ceremony will take place on Thursday, November 23, 2023, in Düsseldorf.

In this category, the German Sustainability Award states: „On a finite planet with limited renewable capacities, it is essential to shape the transition towards a functioning circular economy and to minimize the exploration of primary resources. To achieve this, resources must be recovered and reused within the cycle rather than being wasted in a linear ‚make-use-waste‘ chain.“

NABORE’s first appearance at IMM Cologne

The innovative design studio of Thomas Beck, tbSTUDIO from Berlin, has created trendsetting designs out of recycled NABORE materials. Within the „Young Innovative Companies“ support programme, tbSTUDIO has been selected to present its progressive work at IMM Cologne. 
It will also be a premiere for the new NABORE material LSP. The leather chipboard is thermoplastically deformable and can be used in a variety of ways as a mono-material component in furniture, objects as well as flooring and parquet.


Car Symposium, Bochum (Germany)

On May 3rd we look forward to seeing automotive industry experts, academia and politics at the Car Symposium in Bochum. Meet us at this event for thought leaders and decision makers. Let’s exchange ideas, share knowledge and collaborate on solutions to solve the challenges of the automotive industry.

We are at Bo Part Solutions’ Stand, Nr. 35. Or join our speech on May 4th!

Together we unlock the power of recycling and circular economy.

Impressive CO2 results for NABORE Supreme

Die erste patentierte NABORE-Produktlinie verwandelt Lederabfälle durch seine innovative Zero-Waste-Technologie in neue, high-performance Materialien mit minimierten Emissionen.

Die renommierte Agentur Spin360 hat NABORE Supreme in einem Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) über den gesamten Lebenszyklus des Produkts analysiert. Mit dem Ergebnis von 1,11 kg CO2 e/m² übertrifft NABORE alle bisherigen Leder-Ersatzstoffe und trägt viel zu einem CO2 e/m² optimierten Endprodukt bei. Nach dem „End-of-Life“ ist es kreislauffähig und kann wieder in den Produktionsprozess eingebracht werden. NABORE verbindet Hochleistungsprodukte mit Nachhaltigkeit, Kreislaufwirtschaft und hoher Lieferfähigkeit.

Vom 21. bis 23. Februar 2023 wird NABORE auf der internationalen Ledermesse Lineapelle in Mailand, Italien, vertreten sein. Wir freuen uns auf Sie in Halle 22, bei unserem Partner IBL, Stand E22/E24.


Valesens examines site in partnership with NABORE FRANCE

The French promotional association VALESENS is a PTCE awardee and acts as an incubator of circular economy projects for the department of Indre-et-Loire. A Pôle Territorial de Coopération (PTCE for short) means that several actors of a territory join forces to create projects for the future. A fantastic tool for the development of economic, innovative and cooperative solidarity projects at the level of a region.

VALESENS is also the initiator of the "Mon Beau Déchet" competition for innovation in upcycling, of which NABORE is a sponsor. After the collaboration Valesens are investigating the construction of a new regional factory for the production of innovative materials from leather scraps using the NABORE technology. The aim of this project is to set up an industrial processing plant for leather waste to produce new high quality surface materials. It is obtained by agglomeration of shredded leather waste and binders and is used in numerous existing and future applications (fashion, automotive, household, transport). The factory in partnership with NABORE FRANCE has similar characteristics to a paper production plant. It can process up to 3300 tons of leather scraps per year and also produce a composite material from hemp. On an area of 1.5 ha it can create 35-40 jobs. Its location is currently being examined together with Dev'Up.

NABORE® has sponsored the design competition "MON BEAU DÉCHET" 2022

After the success of the first competition on the theme of leather scraps and waste in 2021, the French association VALESENS, on the occasion of the France Design Week, has invited this year together with NABORE®.

The motto of the competition "Mon Beau Déchet 2022" (My Beautiful Waste) is "Innovation of Use". NABORE® is the ideal partner with its zero-waste technology, which uses the valuable resource of leather in its entirety. The designers, artists and students were provided with 9 high-performance materials made from leather cuttings and natural binders. From soft to firm, in natural colours, from anthracite grey to natural beige, the materials offered a creative field. The designers have exploited the potential and created a wide variety of processing techniques, innovative combinations, constructions and transformable objects.

The winners are: First prize and prize of the public: Aurélien Sauvestre - stool Industry Prize: Clara Besnard and Maelisse Berthomé - Jewellery box Second prize: Camille Roussel - screen Third prize: Antoine Brachet - Bottle carrier bag

The winners' objects are made in small series by a local manufactory that brings together designers, experts and young professionals.

Valesens is a support association for the appreciation and promotion of sensory design and technologies in the French region of Tours.
