De driedaagse cursus geeft een dieper inzicht in het hoe en waarom van het spuitgietproces en is vooral een diepgaande theoretische uiteenzetting van het spuitgietproces, verbonden met praktische voorbeelden.

In the supercritical CO2 phase, the CO2 exhibits both the properties of a gas (high diffusivity and low viscosity) and the properties of a liquid (high density), making scCO2 a very interesting extraction medium.

The scC02 Extractor supports our research in the extraction of undesirable chemicals from recyclates. Supercritical CO2 can also be used as a green solvent for textile dyeing.

A Europe-wide consortium aims to create a circular economy by removing hazardous flame retardants from plastic waste and re-using the purified material in high-value applications.

This project will focus on biobased plasticizers, antioxidants, UV stabilizers and flame retardants.

Through this project we want to transfer the expertise of Centexbel-VKC in the field of melt processing to the textile coating sector.

MarinaTex is a home compostable material designed as an alternative to single-use plastic films. The material is comprised of waste material from the fishing industry and sustainable algae.

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.
