As recycling is key in the transition to a circular economy, Centexbel expands its lab equipment to characterize recyclates or to assess the recyclability of materials.

DARK WATERS tells the shocking and heroic story of attorney Robert Bilott (Mark Ruffalo) inspired by a true story. He risked his career and his family to fight one of the world’s largest corporations and help a community that was exposed to dangerous PFAS chemicals.

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.

Because PFASs are often used in textile finishing, the European Commission launches a comprehensive study on the use of all types of PFAS in the textile sector.

This pre-standard study aims at developing an analytic test method to determine perfluorinated compounds including the required extraction and purification methods.

REMADYL will develop a breakthrough single step continuous process based on extractive extrusion technology in combination with novel solvents and melt filtration, which has the potential of rejuvenating ‘old PVC’ into market competitive high purity PVC.

Centexbel offers a testing set to analyse your products on the presence of substances of very high concern, as defined by REACH legislation. The Centexbel analyses allow manufacturers, textile finishers, importers, retailers and brands to meet the REACH SVHC obligations.

ECO-DWOR will examine the use of various technologies for textile and leather finishing to replace C8 and other fluorocarbons.

The project, carried out by a consortium of seven members, has the objective to reduce the impact of flame retardants used in the textile industry and their future alternatives, on the environment, human health and on the safety of industry workers by analysing their environmental impact and functionalities.
