Although Poly(lactic acid)/polycaprolactone (PLA/PCL) blends have been studied in literature, the deformation mechanism that is related to the toughness increment with respect to pure PLA has not been investigated in detail. The novelty of this work is to understand in depth the correlation between


On May 25, 2022, the Centexbel-VKC annual report 2022 has been presented at the General Board meeting that was held in the Filliers Gin Distillery in Deinze.

The report includes the main figures and highlights of the previous year and offers a comprehensive view of our research activities

The Innovaders set up research around collective challenges and help the companies in question to innovate. They join forces to make the Belgian industry more competitive. In the article, Chairman Jan Laperre and vice-chairmen Herman Derache and Olivier Vandooren explain what this means in practice

Recycling of plastic waste from electrical and electronic equipment (EEE), containing brominated flame retardants (BFR) remains difficult due to the increasingly stringent regulations on their handling and recovery. This report deals with photodegradation in a low-pressure reactor applying UV

The depletion of fossil resources and the growing demand for plastic waste reduction has put industries and academic researchers under pressure to develop increasingly sustainable packaging solutions that are both functional  and circularly designed. In this review, we provide an overview of the

A biobased healable 2K polyurethane (PU) coating incorporating a Schiff base was synthesized and applied as a thin coating on textiles. The Schiff base, made out of cystine and vanillin, contained reversible imine and disulfide bonds and was used as a chain extender in PU synthesis. The FT-IR

As part of the RESERVIST project, the Textile ETP organised a webinar in September 2022, gathering affected key stakeholders from the textile sector to share and discuss their experiences, challenges and insights. Attended by several textile SMEs, research and technology institutions and clusters

The goal of this study was to determine whether a bio-based self-reinforced polylactic acid (SRPLA) is suitable for use in structures deployed in the marine environment. The material was produced from co-mingled fibres with different melting points. Two key criteria, durability during service and

Textile innovations and technologies provide impetus for many branches of industry and promise market and sales success far beyond their own sector. 9 winners from 7 categories were honored on June 21, 2022, at the leading international trade fair for technical textiles and nonwovens Techtextil in
