EMBALLAGE 2010 to pack a sustainable punch

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).


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

COMEXPOSIUM organises 135 conventions and exhibitions, which cover 17 business sectors and welcome 35,000 exhibitors as well as 3 million visitors. The group organises five of the ten largest events in France – SIAL, Intermat, Equip Auto, SIMA and Foire de Paris (Paris Fair).

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

Im Focus: Etching Microstructures with Lasers

Ultrafast lasers have introduced new possibilities in engraving ultrafine structures, and scientists are now also investigating how to use them to etch microstructures into thin glass. There are possible applications in analytics (lab on a chip) and especially in electronics and the consumer sector, where great interest has been shown.

This new method was born of a surprising phenomenon: irradiating glass in a particular way with an ultrafast laser has the effect of making the glass up to a...

Im Focus: Light-driven atomic rotations excite magnetic waves

Terahertz excitation of selected crystal vibrations leads to an effective magnetic field that drives coherent spin motion

Controlling functional properties by light is one of the grand goals in modern condensed matter physics and materials science. A new study now demonstrates how...

Im Focus: New 3-D wiring technique brings scalable quantum computers closer to reality

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.

"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...

Im Focus: Scientists develop a semiconductor nanocomposite material that moves in response to light

In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.

A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...

Im Focus: Diamonds aren't forever: Sandia, Harvard team create first quantum computer bridge

By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.

"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
