Research & development

Driven by European policy, the R&D department of Le Cebedeau, an approved centre, is independent and customer-oriented. Our research is aimed at responding to environmental, scientific and technological challenges while stimulating the economic development of Wallonia.

With the objectives of incorporating a sustainable dimension and promoting the value of water in its projects, the lines of research are designed to make use of the expertise we have developed, especially through our various customer services.

Biotechnologies are major industries of the 21st century and they provide the opportunity to revolutionize the water cycle. In this context, Le Cebedeau aims to incorporate a microbiological dimension at the industrial processes level by bringing together engineers and microbiologists. In particular, our Nature-inspired research activities include the development of processes or products from the experimental proof of concept stage (TRL 3) to prototype demonstration (TRL 7).
