Celabor is currently cooperating, for a duration of 4 years, to the CILAB Competitivity project (Composite Innovation Laboratory), supported by Wallonia and Feder.
It is a multi-sectorial platform of innovation and technological transfer on composite materials which comprises, aside from Celabor, Cenaero, Sirris, Multitel and Centexbel.
Celabor leads the workpackage "Industrialisation of biocomposites ".
The objective is to determine in which cases biocomposites, normally reinforced with natural fibres (hemps, flax, wood) can constitute an alternative to conventional materials.
Systematic trials are performed in order to compare the new biosourced materials to the traditional fuel based materials.
