Making humanitarian aid sustainable and efficient

We live in a dynamic, fast moving and changing world - each of us. Every day, we receive images of polluted oceans, dirty landscapes and big cities shrouded in clouds of exhaust fumes. As a result we see and experience natural disasters, epidemics, pandemics, diseases, destruction, bombings, terrorist attacks and wars.

Initiated by the idea of a field bed made of corrugated cardboard for use in humanitarian aid, the project and company corrugAid was born. At the professorship for wood technology and fiber material technology of the TU Dresden, Dipl.-Ing. Sven Grasselt-Gille (research associate) was already working on a sustainable idea for humanitarian aid in 2015. Supported by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), the project "AidBoards" was born. In course of the project, first prototypes of a field bed made of corrugated board were developed, which were tested, adjusted and improved in the course of time.

Today, almost five years later, corrugAid has emerged from the former research project into a joint development of the TU Dresden, the THIMM Group and Markus Lampe Consulting. By now corrugAid focuses not only on field beds made of corrugated board, but also on other solutions made of sustainable materials for humanitarian aid.

The ideal solution for your operation

corrugAid provides sustainable and efficient solutions for humanitarian aid. In addition to the corrugated board camp bed, the product portfolio includes other corrugated board solutions such as storage boxes and partitions. If you are looking for a specific solution for your operation, feel free to contact us. We would be delighted to develop an individual solution made of renewable materials for your purposes as well.
 

Camp bed made of corrugated board

The sustainable corrugAid camp bed is made of corrugated board and a cotton fabric covering. The frame and the covering can support a weight of 150 kilograms, so that up to 3 people can sit on the bed.

The corrugated cardboard camp bed is delivered in a flat-lying set, so that it can be assembled in a few minutes without any tools or other additional equipment. Especially in crisis areas temporary camps can be equipped with camp beds quickly and environmentally friendly.

Corrugated board storage box

The size-variable storage box made of corrugated board can be used not only as a storage possibility, but also as a means of transport. Equipped carrying handles support the transport additionally. Further more, the corrugated board box can be converted into a bedside table and has a further use besides the storage possibility.
The corrugAid storage box is a single-material solution made of corrugated board and can easily be returned to the raw material cycle after use.
 

Partition walls for room division

To create a little privacy in temporary emergency shelters, partition walls are often used. corrugAid offers sustainable partition walls made of corrugated board. On the one hand, these can be used to divide up rooms in tents or buildings, and on the other hand, they can also be ideally used in all rooms where separation is necessary. Therefore an application in hospitals, medical practices, schools, in supermarkets or within production facilities is also possible.

The partition walls made of corrugated board can be produced in different and individual sizes, depending on the area of the usage.
 

Sustainability & Production

 

Renewable materials are part of our DNA

corrugAid products are primarily single-material solutions made of corrugated board and therefore ideal recycling products. Corrugated board is produced from several paper webs and is thus obtained from a renewable raw material. The origin of the paper fibers is in the forests, which are sustainably managed. Responsible forestry is the main focus. The corrugated board used by corrugAid consists of both recycled paper and newly recovered "fresh" paper fibers. This ensures that the product requirements for humidity, durability and stability are met. After the corrugAid products have been used, they can be easily recycled and added to the existing used paper cycle without great effort.

All corrugAid products are made in Germany. We also receive the corrugated board for our products from established production plants of the THIMM Group. The family business THIMM is a manufacturer of corrugated board and has been active in the packaging industry since 1949. Due to the direct accessibility of the THIMM production plants to the largest German airports and ports, corrugAid products can be delivered quickly and cost-efficiently after production.
