EMBALLAGE 2010 to focus on intelligent packaging

19.07.2010
EMBALLAGE 2010, a leading international trade show for the packaging sector, will take place from 22 to 25 November, at the Paris Nord Villepinte Exhibition Centre. More than 1,000 exhibitors (including 250 new ones) from 40 countries have already indicated that they will be attending, and they will meet the expected 85,000 visitors over the four days of the trade fair.

EMBALLAGE constitutes both a generalist and a multi-specialist trade show and, this year, it will feature three pavilions as well as dedicated areas for innovation, conferences and design.

The Pack Innovation area will showcase close to 100 innovations, which have been submitted by exhibitors and selected by a panel of experts.

The Pack Vision area will focus on conferences, offering a place for professionals from around the world to meet and swap ideas. It will concentrate, among other themes, on design, market innovations and initiatives in user sectors.

The Pack Designers area will highlight international talent from the world of packaging design and will focus on the importance of the marketing, technical and economic roles of packaging design.

The Emballage in Green area will concentrate on environmental issues. The global packaging industry is driven by sustainable-development concerns. Environmentally friendly packaging was worth US$88 billion in 2009, and the sector is expected to represent US$170 billion in 2014. A TV-style set will be the venue for an exchange of ideas and discussions.

A presentation of Incredible Packaging from around the world will also be organised by students of Strate College Designers, a French higher-education institute for industrial design. Fabrice Peltier, founder of the DesignPack Gallery, will present the Recycling Forever exhibition, which will demonstrate how to turn used packaging into a new source of energy and creation.

At EMBALLAGE 2010, the results of a European study on packaging for food products, carried out in partnership with UBIFRANCE and the French Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Fishing, will be released. The study is currently being carried out in seven countries: Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. The results will be presented exclusively at EMBALLAGE 2010, within the framework of Pack Vision, and will include an analysis of new guidelines on the packing and packaging of food products.

There will also be a survey of the general public on the theme Europeans and their perception of packaging, which will be launched in September 2010 in France, Germany, Great Britain, Italy, and Spain. The aim of the survey is to compare the attitudes and expectations of Europeans when it comes to packaging. Do the French sort their packaging more than the English? Do the Italians expect more re-usable packaging? What do the Germans think about the ergonomics of their packaging? The results will be presented and debated during the trade show.

Packaging design will also be in the spotlight, with the results of a survey that considers the role of design in the creation of packaging, from the perspective of industries which use packaging. Is design effective in the creation of packaging? What is the added value of a designer? How do manufacturers choose their creative agencies? Do these manufacturers have, in the current environment, plans for the design of new packaging? All these questions will be answered at EMBALLAGE 2010. The survey was carried out online on the areyounet platform between 17 and 28 May 2010, using a sample of 170 industrialists and packaging manufacturers from companies with more than 20 employees. Complete results are available on request (French and English versions).

About EMBALLAGE

COMEXPOSIUM organises 135 conventions and exhibitions each year, which cover 17 business sectors and welcome 35,000 exhibitors as well as three million visitors. The group organises five of the 10 largest events in France – SIAL, Intermat, Equip Auto, SIMA and Foire de Paris (Paris Fair).

EMBALLAGE, one of the leading international packaging trade shows worldwide, is organised by the COMEXPOSIUM Group, France’s premier events organiser.

Visitor passes are available for €25 (instead of €50) until 5 September 2010 inclusive.

This event will be combined with MANUTENTION 2010, the Material Handling Equipment and Systems exhibition, which will be held on the same dates.

EMBALLAGE 2010 will take place from 22 to 25 November 2010 at the Paris Nord Villepinte Exhibition Centre in Paris (France).

Im Focus: Designing Architecture with Solar Building Envelopes

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.

As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...

Im Focus: How to inflate a hardened concrete shell with a weight of 80 t

At TU Wien, an alternative for resource intensive formwork for the construction of concrete domes was developed. It is now used in a test dome for the Austrian Federal Railways Infrastructure (ÖBB Infrastruktur).

Concrete shells are efficient structures, but not very resource efficient. The formwork for the construction of concrete domes alone requires a high amount of...

Im Focus: Bacterial Pac Man molecule snaps at sugar

Many pathogens use certain sugar compounds from their host to help conceal themselves against the immune system. Scientists at the University of Bonn have now, in cooperation with researchers at the University of York in the United Kingdom, analyzed the dynamics of a bacterial molecule that is involved in this process. They demonstrate that the protein grabs onto the sugar molecule with a Pac Man-like chewing motion and holds it until it can be used. Their results could help design therapeutics that could make the protein poorer at grabbing and holding and hence compromise the pathogen in the host. The study has now been published in “Biophysical Journal”.

The cells of the mouth, nose and intestinal mucosa produce large quantities of a chemical called sialic acid. Many bacteria possess a special transport system...

Im Focus: Repairing defects in fiber-reinforced plastics more efficiently

Fiber-reinforced plastics (FRP) are frequently used in the aeronautic and automobile industry. However, the repair of workpieces made of these composite materials is often less profitable than exchanging the part. In order to increase the lifetime of FRP parts and to make them more eco-efficient, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) and the Apodius GmbH want to combine a new measuring device for fiber layer orientation with an innovative laser-based repair process.

Defects in FRP pieces may be production or operation-related. Whether or not repair is cost-effective depends on the geometry of the defective area, the tools...
