French pulp and paper sector goes to Helsinki for PULPAPER 2010

20.05.2010
UBIFRANCE, the French Agency for International Business Development, will present 13 companies on the French pavilion at PULPAPER, the international trade show for the pulp, paper, board and converting industry, which will take place in Helsinki from 1 to 3 June 2010.

PULPAPER, which is the leading European trade show for the paper industry, takes place every other year, alternating with SPCI, the Swedish trade show for the paper industry. In 2007, PULPAPER welcomed 16,000 visitors from 78 countries, primarily from Europe and Asia (China, Indonesia and India). In 2010, the event will take place in Helsinki (Finland) from 1 to 3 June.

In Finland, the timber and paper sector is a key industry, and the country is renowned for its expertise in pulp and paper. PULPAPER is a key event for European companies and the French Pavilion will showcase the expertise of innovative French companies in the paper industry.

French manufacturers of machinery for the paper and cardboard industry generate 80% of their turnover through exports around the world. French companies are present at each stage of the production process, from engineering and pulp production to finished products. The 13 French companies on the French Pavilion represent all sectors of the industry and will be presenting their latest innovations during the trade show.

The following companies will take part in the French Pavilion.

ABB France specialises in coating preparation for use in papermaking (www.abb.com/pulpandpaper), while ABK Machinery SA designs and manufactures complete machines and specialised equipment for the paper and board industry (www.abkmachinery.com).

B A Systèmes supplies Automatically Guided Vehicles (AGVs) to leading multinational companies in the paper and printing industry (www.basystemes.com). Clextral will present its Bivis machines, which process a wide variety of raw materials into quality pulp (www.clextral.com).

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...
