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).
CTP (Centre Technique du Papier) is an R&D centre for the production and converting industry for pulp, paper and board (www.webctp.com). For its part, Durum is a leading specialist in the manufacturing and application of hardfacing products and parts for the paper industry (www.barratgroup.com).
IBC is an international provider of training courses for the pulp and paper industry (www.ibc-ppc.com). Pall Corporation is a leading specialist in filtration, separation and purification, providing analyses and solutions for fluids used by the pulp and paper industry (www.pall.com).
Rai-Tillieres produces wove dandy rolls, marking rolls, filtration belts and shrinkable covers for use by the paper industry (www.raitillieres.com). Solaronics Bekaert offers a range of non-contact drying solutions for paper manufacturers (www.bekaert.com).

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.
The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.
Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...
Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.
Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
