REIN4CED has developed and patented a brand new impact resistant composite material.

Development and dissemination of the necessary knowledge to effectively use agricultural residues from flax cultivation as reinforcement materials in polyolefin and PLA plastics.

Improved sizings for recycled carbon fibres to optimize adhesion with polymer matrices and to improve processing behaviour for composite manufacturing

Holistic processes for the cost-effective and sustainable management of End-of-Life Aircraft Composite Structures

Biocomposites have the advantage of being very light. Unfortunately, the large variation in fibre properties makes a robust design difficult and their intrinsic moisture sensitivity can lead to premature degradation. The BREPLA project aims to further develop and disseminate the material knowledge required for the successful application of biocomposites in a growing number of end products.

The COBRACOMP project aims to strengthen the competitiveness of companies in the value chain of production of composite materials.

Acceleration of advanced manufacturing by demonstrating advanced composite manufacturing in close cooperation with companies.

The prestigious Global Bioplastics Award, presented annually at the end of the first day of the European Bioplastics conference, was won this year by Bio4Self, a consortium - co-ordinated by Centexbel - of research institutes and companies collaborating on a project to develop self-reinforced composites based on PLA fibres.

The international trade publication bioplastics MAGAZINE is proud to announce the finalists for the 2019 Global Bioplastics Award. Known as the "Bioplastics Oskar", the award will be presented this year for the 14th time in succession.
