For decades, Labaronne-Citaf has been developing unrivalled know-how in the design of flexible storage solutions. Innovative, economical and ecological, our products are suitable for all types of liquid and gas and can reach volumes of up to 2,000 m3 freestanding, and up to 10,000 m3 in the semi-buried format.
All our applications
Labaronne-Citaf offers a complete range of products covering a wide field of applications.
Specialising in many areas of activity such as agriculture, building and public works (BTW) and humanitarian work, Labaronne-Citaf has great expertise in flexible storage solutions, for water recovery, fire protection, effluent management, preservation of liquid fertiliser, for fuel tanks and to conserve liquids in general.
Recognised for their strength and their longevity (more than 20 years), our products are designed with technical fabrics, high tenacity and are anti-UV treated, to guarantee a maximum lifespan. Manufactured in either France or Europe, these textiles are adapted to each application and take into account the chemical and specific components of each stored liquid.
Whatever your project, you will inevitably find a suitable storage solution.
Storage of hydrocarbons requires the implementation of reliable and proven technologies. With unparalleled expertise in the management of liquid in flexible storage, Labaronne-Citaf develops high tenacity flexible tanks for fuels.
Water is a scarce resource. Its management requires implementation of water reserve or rain water recovery system.
For the storage and preservation of drinking water, vital and strategic resource, Labaronne-Citaf offers economic, secure and easy to install flexible solutions.
Regulatory requirements related to the control of discharges from agricultural effluents impose the upgrading of livestock buildings and the treatment of wine effluents. The range of products for Effluents Labaronne-Citaf® was developed to meet the storage constraints of farmers and wine effluents in the long term..
Environmental and industrial imperatives require the implementation of reliable and secure storage solutions. Labaronne-Citaf® worked for over 30 years in industry to meet this need.
The flexible tanks of Labaronne-Citaf have historically been designed for long-term storage of sulfur and nitrogen solutions. With the support of industry professionals, we have since developed a complete range of product, customized and specific to the liquid fertilizer..
The storage of natural gas is a strategic issue; especially with the development of anaerobic digestion and biogas recovery. Recognizing that this resource represents a possible application for flexible solutions, Labaronne-Citaf again offers a range of specific products..
MINERAL OILS / INDUSTRIAL PROCESS
Storing aggressive and dangerous liquids, by offering a flexible alternative both safely and economically, is a problem faced by many manufacturers and which Labaronne-Citaf wished to respond with dedicated products.
FIRE FIGHTING STORAGE
Protecting buildings against fire risks require proven and reliable infrastructure, dedicated to the rapid water supply.
Every application has its own specific features
We design our flexible storage solutions with technical fabrics made of high tenacity polyester threads coated with PVC, which have accompanied us for over 60 years and have been developed according to our experience.
Our entire manufacturing process (ISO 9001 certified) is audited in great detail every year by qualified professionals.
Flexible tanks for water, fertilisers and fire protection
The company’s primary vocation since 1958, Labaronne-Citaf offers numerous solutions dedicated to water storage (raw water, drinking water, wastewater and fire water). Recognized and used by the main players in the humanitarian world, our tanks and flexible tanks for the supply and treatment of drinking water are made from materials meeting European requirements specific to human consumption (physico-chemical and antimicrobial qualities). These 100% recyclable fabrics are compliant with the REACH directive.
Dedicated to agriculture, our tailor-made products for the flexible storage of liquid fertilizers (in particular the self-supporting closed flexible tank) meet French and European regulations. The textiles we use are chosen to withstand nitrogen solutions, UAN, to ensure environmental protection standards are met.
For countries which require it, they can also be installed with an additional retention solution, either with a pit on an embankment or a low-walled basin.
Labaronne-Citaf is also a specialist in the manufacture of flexible tanks for firefighting. Our fire fighting storage tank has the reputation of being the most reliable on the market. In France, we were also behind the creation of a specific certification in 2010 to attest to the compliance of flexible fire tanks — the QB* (Building Quality). Labaronne-Citaf also promoted the creation of the French NF S62-250 standard for fire water tanks.
Effluents, gases, mineral oils
Flexible tanks for agricultural effluents or industrial effluents meet many standards, particularly guaranteeing resistance to aggressive and fermentable liquids, thanks to a special two-sided varnish finish. Our range of flexible containers for effluent storage eliminates direct discharges into the natural environment and prevents water pollution by runoff and infiltration into the ground.
Mineral oils and Fuel
The flexible tanks for the storage of mineral oils and fuels are manufactured with fabrics rigorously chosen according to their use: polyurethane (PU) and elastomer (Nitrile).
These withstand the most corrosive liquids (chemicals, industrial waters, latex, brine, etc.).
In Europe, Labaronne-Citaf has dedicated a specific “Atexen” team for its flexible gas storage solutions, which are just as watertight and reliable as their hard-type counterparts. Our Atexen experts will support you in all your methanation projects, whether this involves a flexible digester, single cover or double skin (biogas cover or gasometer). Please contact us for further information.
Whatever your expectations for the application, Labaronne-Citaf products guarantee you:
- a perfect seal (limitation of the spread of odours, no contamination of the environment),
- conservation of the stored liquid (no contact with the air and no risk of evaporation),
- a robust, reliable and proven solution in extreme climatic conditions (storage of liquids with temperatures between -30°C and +70°C, anti-seismic solution, transportable and reusable).
