Matériaux composites

Accélération de la fabrication avancée en démontrant celle-ci en étroite interaction avec les entreprises.

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.

Le concept de Centexbel d'un matériau composite auto-renforcé et biosourcé est lauréat du prix prestigieux "JEC World Innovation Award" dans la catégorie “Sustainability”

The CELFI trajectory aims to efficiently develop, produce, apply and recylce WPC (Wood Plastic Composites), the most important product group in the family of plastics reinforced by CELlulosic FIbres.

This Interreg 2 Seas-Mers-Zeeën project will develop biobased composites for applications in a marine environment in answer to the growing markets for fish & seaweed farming, energy harvesting, boats, pontons, anchoring and buoy elements.

Le projet de recherche MACOBIO fait partie de la grappe des projets FEDER 2014-2020 - Low Carbon Footprint Materials - sur la valorisation de ressources naturelles pour la fabrication de nouveaux matériaux d’origine biosourcée. MACOBIO porte en particulier sur la conception des Matériaux Composites 100% biosourcés, tels que les composites à base de matrices biosourcées innovantes thermoplastiques et thermodurcissables, renforcés par des fibres naturelles.

On 2 & 3 October 2018, more than 100 participants from Belgium and abroad gathered at the Park Inn Hotel in Liège Airport to attend the 2018 international conference on COMPOSITES. The conference was organised by CENTEXBEL, the Textiles Competence Centre, and provided a platform to the participants form the industry and research world to discuss the exceptional characteristics of these new materials and to highlight the challenges of their production.

The aim of the project is to develop sustainable fibre reinforced composites that meet the flame retardancy requirements of the transport and construction sectors, meaning that the materials are difficult to ignite, have no burning droplets and have low smoke densities and toxicities.
