Agrocalage: Development of cushioning materials derived from agro-regional resources
 20 Fév 2013

Since 2009,CELABOR is involved in the project Agrocalage to develop new cushioning materials derived from agricultural resources.
 
Agrocalage, it’s…
 
… An Interreg IV project
European cross-border cooperation program that aims to strengthen economic and social exchanges between Nord-Pas de Calais, Champagne-Ardenne and Picardy in France, and Wallonia and Flanders in Belgium.
 
…Two partners
CELABOR (Wallonia) and l’Ecole Supérieure d’Ingénieurs de Reims (France).
 
… An initial problem
Border regionsof Wallonia and the French Ardennes are characterized by 'traditional' industries requiring an economic transformation. New activities, such as plastics, effectively contribute to the diversification of the industrial base. Another common point of these two border regions is the predominance of agriculture and the availability of agricultural resources. The AGROCALAGE project is set in this context.
 
Several objectives
1. Use these agro-resources to develop cushioning solutions for secondary packaging applications (grouping and wedging products).
2. Develop products and co-products of local cultures present in large numbers in the border region (e.g. wheat, potato, pea, hemp, straw, cellulose...)
3. Replace petrochemical polymers through ecological and innovative solutions issued from biomass, and improve their end of life valorisation (sorting, recycling, organic recycling and energy...)
