Northern France rises to environmental challenge at IFAT

08.07.2010
The Nord-Pas-de-Calais Chamber of Commerce will showcase eight companies from across the environment sector on the Northern France, The Environment is our business stand, which will be part of the French pavilion at the IFAT trade show, to be held in Munich from 13 to 17 September 2010.

The Northern France stand will be located in Hall C3 (Stand 213/314), as well as in the open-air exhibition ground (Stand 501/9). It will showcase eight companies from the region, including the CD2E regional environmental cluster, which will be presenting the expertise of Nord-Pas-de-Calais companies operating in the environmental field. IFAT is the leading international event for water, sewage, waste, and raw-materials management and will take place in Munich (Germany) from 13 to 17 September 2010.

The Nord-Pas-de-Calais region, which has a long manufacturing and mining tradition, faces numerous ecological challenges. Currently, almost 600 businesses in the environmental sector are based in the region, offering products and services in areas including the treatment of waste and water, air quality, green construction, and renewable energy.

Over 150 ecological projects, which are funded by various regional bodies, have been launched in Nord-Pas-de-Calais over the past decade, including both new projects and the restoration of existing facilities such as schools, social housing and municipal buildings. A database of environmentally friendly materials for use in the construction sector has also been created, which indicates the impact of these materials upon the environment or public health.

Nord-Pas-de-Calais has more than 60 research centres, employing a total of 400 researchers. The region is also the home of the Centre National de Recherche sur les Sites et Sols Pollués (National Research Centre for Polluted Soils and Sites), which specialises in the investigation and classification of polluted sites, as well as the treatment of ground and water pollution.

The CD2E cluster (where ‘CD2E’ stands for Creation et Développement des Eco-Entreprises, i.e. the Creation and Development of Environmental Businesses), which brings together experts and professionals from across the environment sector, has played an active role in boosting the competitiveness and overall development of the region's key players in the environmental field.

In addition to the assistance it provides in the development of innovative, high-added-value environmental businesses, CD2E co-ordinates European projects involving green construction. CD2E assists in the setting-up of international partnerships aimed at boosting the capacity of environmental businesses, which is also done through encouraging trade and dialogue between key players, and through attracting international investment to the region.

The following companies will be exhibiting on the Northern France stand, as part of the French pavilion at IFAT (Hall C3, Stand 213/214). CD2E specialises in the creation and development of environmental businesses (www.cd2e.com). Côte d'Opale Développement is the agency for the development and promotion of the Côte d'Opale area of northern France (www.cotedopaledeveloppement.com).

Ecodas specialises in the treatment of infectious medical waste (www.ecodas.com). L’Eau Pure is a specialist in water treatment (www.eaupure.fr) and, for its part, Techsub carries out underwater work and services (www.techsub.com).

Turbe is a manufacturer of goods conveyors (www.turbe.fr), while APIM is the development agency for the Lille Metropolitan Area (www.apim.com). The CCI International Nord-Pas-de-Calais is the Chamber of Commerce for the Nord-Pas-de-Calais region of northern France (www.cci-international.net) and will be represented on the stand.

Finally, Huwer manufactures pumping and flushing vehicles (www.huwer.com). Its stand will be located in the open-air exhibition ground (Stand 501/9).

About CCI Nord-Pas-de-Calais

The Nord-Pas-de-Calais Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCI International Nord-Pas-de-Calais) represents and promotes the interests of companies based in the Nord-Pas-de-Calais region of northern France.

Companies from the region will take part in the IFAT trade fair in Munich (in southern Germany) from 13 to 17 September 2010. The Northern France pavilion will be located in Hall C3 (Stand 213/214) and in the open-air exhibition ground (Stand 501/9).

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...

Im Focus: MADMAX: Max Planck Institute for Physics takes up axion research

The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.

The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...

Im Focus: Fraunhofer ISE Develops Highly Compact, High Frequency DC/DC Converter for Aviation

The efficiency of power electronic systems is not solely dependent on electrical efficiency but also on weight, for example, in mobile systems. When the weight of relevant components and devices in airplanes, for instance, is reduced, fuel savings can be achieved and correspondingly greenhouse gas emissions decreased. New materials and components based on gallium nitride (GaN) can help to reduce weight and increase the efficiency. With these new materials, power electronic switches can be operated at higher switching frequency, resulting in higher power density and lower material costs.

Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE together with partners have investigated how these materials can be used to make power...
