edilon)(sedra investigates sustainable biobased polymers for railway systems

edilon)(sedra, in cooperation with Wageningen UR and Croda, is working on the development of next generation polymers for elastic rail fastening systems. The goal of the project is to develop environmentally-friendly biobased polymers which cure into an elastic rubber-like compound within a limited time.

These biobased polymers can be applied as elastic sound and vibration-reducing materials. The project team is studying various chemical research routes. The final material should have an optimal worksite processability. In addition it should meet specific mechanical and adhesion requirements.

BPM programme
The project is part of the large-scale research programme Biobased Performance Materials (BPM). The goal of the BPM programme is to develop high-quality materials based on biomass; materials that are increasingly applied in practice. The research focuses on two types of polymer materials: polymers produced by plants and polymers from biobased building blocks produced via biotechnology or chemical catalysis. The BPM programme is partly financed by the Top Sector Chemistry and is led by Wageningen UR Food & Biobased Research.

Technology Forum: state-of-the-art event for railway bridges

On the 8th of October 2015, edilon)(sedra held its 5th Technology Forum at the TECHNOSEUM – Museum for Technology and Labour in Mannheim, Germany.

High-profile, reputable speakers held lectures on the theme ‘Railway Bridges’.  Around 60 experts from the rail branch attended the forum and shared their most recent knowledge concerning planning, construction and maintenance of railway bridges.

The attendees enjoyed the evening together in a relaxed atmosphere after the technical presentations and discussions. For this, edilon)(sedra booked the historical reconstructed station ambience “Arbeiterkneipe“ (workers tavern) at TECHNOSEUM. In this particular ambience the attendees had the opportunity to deepen the discussions of the day and expand their personal network.

25th anniversary of rail fastening systems for light rail tracks out of recycled material

This year edilon)(sedra celebrates the invention 25 years ago of recycled filler blocks for light rail tracks.

edilon)(sedra are the original inventors of recycled filler blocks.The filler blocks, applied in the series of “edilon)(sedra SDS (Sound Damping Systems)”, are made from recycled tyre rubber granulate and are 100% recyclable.

For more information about edilon)(sedra filler blocks and their unique and proven characteristics please download here the brochure edilon)/(sedra SDS  and_SDS-M type Filler Blocks.

Technology Forum edilon)(sedra: state-of-the-art event for green tram tracks

Our 4th Technology Forum held at the Humboldt University in Berlin on 27 October 2014 was a great success!

This year’s Technology Forum was co-organized with the Green Track Network and carried the theme ‘Green Tram Tracks’. Around 90 experts from the rail industry attended the forum and shared their most recent knowledge about planning, construction and maintenance of green tram tracks.

A fantastic view of Berlin and an agreeable musical accompaniment in the Panoramapunkt high above the roofs of Berlin completed the day.

175th anniversary Dutch railways

This year the Dutch railways celebrate their 175th anniversary. A milestone which edilon)(sedra is proud to have contributed towards.

A broad spectrum of activities will be offered during the next months, such as the rail event Spoorparade in Amersfoort (16th to the 21st October). In corporation with Railforum, the Dutch association for the rail sector, edilon)(sedra have set up a rail quiz, with an assortment of interesting questions to do with rail systems from the past, present and future of the Dutch rail sector.
