EMBALLAGE 2010 to pack a sustainable punch

01.04.2010
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. The event will focus on sustainable development and smart packaging.

EMBALLAGE 2010, which is being held for the 39th time, will gather all the international players in the packaging industry, including specialists in packaging for food, liquids, healthcare, luxury goods and industrial goods. The trade show will also feature zones dedicated to sustainable development and smart packaging. It will take place in Paris (France) in late November 2010.

Smart packaging – i.e. products that are both innovative and sustainable – will be in the spotlight. The trend towards sustainable development, including eco-design, new materials and recycling, is now a key concern for packaging manufacturers.

At EMBALLAGE 2010, sustainable development is to be highlighted thanks to Emballage in Green – with a TV-style set, where experts and manufacturers will hold debates. A green itinerary round the trade show and an exhibition about packaging afterlife complete the sustainable-development programme.

In 2010, visitors to the trade show will be able to discover the latest trends, including new and innovative packaging materials, in a dedicated area – Pack Innovation. Visitors will be able to find out about the long-term strategies of exhibitors with regard to the latest issues, such as environmental friendliness, ease of use, reduction of production costs, originality and safety.

Pack Vision will include a comprehensive programme of conferences, where high-level speakers and sector specialists will present their views about new technology, debate sustainable-development issues and regulations, and share their experiences.

At the heart of Hall 6, EMBALLAGE 2010 will feature Pack Designers – an area where design professionals can discover new trends and meet agencies as well as designers.

According to results from the 2009 Packaging Observatory survey, 38% of packaging purchasers and 47% of manufacturers consider packaging design to be a major avenue for development, which illustrates the relevance of such issues within the sector. [The Packaging Observatory data was obtained thanks to an email survey conducted in October 2009 on the basis of a sample of 593 packaging-industry professionals, i.e. 356 buyers, 153 packaging manufacturers, and 84 manufacturers/distributors of packaging machinery.]

At EMBALLAGE 2008, there were 1,500 exhibitors (44% of them international), as well as 101,000 visitors (36% international) and 400 journalists (50% international).

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...
