Florpro project: biopreservation of refrigerated food
 22 Juil 2013

As part of the Marshall Plan projects, CELABOR just started a new study about biopreservation of refrigerated food. The FLORPRO project aims to use protective flora acting against alteration and/or pathogen germs in order to lengthen the shelf-life of perishable foodstuff. To obtain such a result, an advanced study of the produce is necessary. Amongst others, it is imperative to have a detailed view of the flora found inside the foodstuff, an analysis made possible through metanogenomics and carried out within this project by the ... Read more

Analysis of short natural fibres used for the plastics reinforcement
 27 Fév 2014

The use of natural fibres in replacement of glass fibres for the reinforcement of plastics is a current subject in consideration of the ecological trend and the progressive depletion of petrol resources.

Like all the natural materials, the natural fibres (notably from flax or hemp) must be well controlled in order to fully benefit from them. The value scattering and the reproduction in time are factors to be considered if one wants to gain the potential users' confidence.
For years, Celabor has been studying the granulometric and morphologic ... Read more

Project interreg IVB GROW2BUILD
 19 Fév 2014

Grow2Build is a project of transnational cooperation funded by Feder and Wallonia (2013-2015).
Grow2Build works on the transition of the North West European economy from an oil based economy towards a biobased economy.
The project focuses specificly on hemp and flax based building materials: Grow2Build wants to tackle the remaining bottlenecks through the whole product chain (production and supply) of hemp and flax based biobuilding materials as well as in the marketing of those products.
Focus is put on hemp and flax, as the NWE region is particularly suitable ... Read more

New pilot scale water treatment equipments
 22 Mai 2013

CELABOR has been active for a long time in waste water treatment. In that frame, the environmental department has recently acquired two new pilot scale water treatment equipments.

Albapro pilotThe first one is based on the use of algae as an alternative to classical bacterial waste water treatments. Through a European CORNET R&D project called ALBAPRO, CELABOR developed a pilot plant where algae and bacteria work in symbiosis in order to treat industrial waste water (paper, agro-food industries…) and to generate

New developments in the Extraction department
 04 Avr 2013

CELABOR is active in plant extraction and possesses laboratory and pilot scale extraction equipment. The centre gives priority to the development of environmentally friendly processes. Those various green processes enable a major decrease in the volume of fossil solvents and/or the energy needed for the extraction.
Amongst these eco-processes, the use of heated and pressurised solvents is an excellent alternative to classical solvents: supercritical CO2 (in place of hydrocarbons) for apolar compounds and subcritical water (in place of alcohols) for polar compounds. ... Read more

New pelletiser for natural fibres used in composite materials
 25 Fév 2013

In the context of the CILAB project, supported by the Walloon Region and FEDER, Celabor has jus acquired a laboratory machine to produce pellets.
During some projects about reinforcement of plastics by natural fibres, it appeared that it is very difficult to feed and above all to dose fibres into the melted polymer.
The method consisting of transforming the fibres into “pellets” allows a correct and even feeding and thus a more homogeneous dispersion of the fibres in the compound.
Those pellets must have a density such that they can disintegrate easily in contact with the polymer, which ... Read more
