EMBALLAGE 2012 set to provide the full package in November

10.09.2012
EMBALLAGE 2012, the international packaging exhibition, will take place in Paris (France) from 19 to 22 November 2012. With 1,300 exhibitors (48% of whom are from outside France) and 89,000 visitors expected, the international trade event will highlight the innovative power of the packaging sector.

Véronique Sestrières, Exhibition Director of EMBALLAGE, explains, "EMBALLAGE 2012 will be an amazing place, enhancing all types of intelligence prevalent in the packaging industry."

In its 40th year, EMBALLAGE, the international trade show devoted to the packaging industry, will take place from 19 to 22 November of this year at the Paris Nord Villepinte exhibition centre, north of the French capital. The event's organisers expect 89,000 visitors and 1,300 exhibitors, with almost 50% of the latter coming from outside France.

Over four days, the packaging industry will display the extent of its know-how through a comprehensive range of innovative solutions that meet the demands of the packaging chain. These solutions encompass raw materials, finished products, packaging machines, and services.

More than ever before, packaging has become a strategic area, governing economic progress for all its user industries. EMBALLAGE 2012 will constitute an exceptional commercial platform in terms of inspiration and sourcing, for each user sector.

According to the latest market research conducted by Smithers Pira (formerly Pira International), global packaging production, estimated to be worth $670 billion in 2010, is anticipated to represent $820 billion by 2016. For its part, the French packaging industry grew by about 10% in 2010.

The industry's growth trend is said to stem largely from urbanisation, investment in construction, the development of the health sector, and the expansion experienced by emerging and transitional economies such as those of Brazil, China, India and certain Eastern European countries. Greater purchasing power in these countries is likely to boost the demand for household equipment, consumables and, therefore, packaging.

In May 2012, EMBALLAGE surveyed European consumers in France, Germany, Italy and Spain with the help of market-research company OpinionWay. Those surveyed were able to choose multiple responses, and the outcome demonstrated that the perception of the packaging sector can be marked by various paradoxes. For 65% of those surveyed, packaging is seen as both "sexy and virtuous" while, for 92%, it is "economical and ecological" and, for 65%, it is both "attractive and useful".

There are numerous features of EMBALLAGE 2012 that will attract those with an interest in packaging. These features include the PACK INNOVATION section of the trade show, which will stage the latest exhibitor innovations, chosen by a pre-selection committee and presented to the world press. The Pack Experts Committee will determine the winners of its Pack Experts' Innovation Awards.

EMBALLAGE TV, a live TV studio, will be a unique platform for expressing ideas, putting the spotlight on the latest news in packaging from 10.00am to 6.00pm throughout the trade show.

The PACK VISION event will, once again, devote its conference cycle to the future of packaging. There will also be a conference programme focusing on the technical aspects of packaging, such as automation, eco-design and robotics, organised by the SYMOP Forum (in tandem with the Syndicat des Entreprises de Technologie de Production, i.e. the French association for manufacturing technologies).

In Hall 6 at EMBALLAGE 2012, there will be I Love Pack, since 1947, which is a previously unseen exhibition organised by the Institut Français displaying iconic packaging that has had a profound effect on consumption and user values.

The REMARKABLE PACKAGING & ALTERNATIVE SOLUTIONS section of EMBALLAGE will provide visitors with a world tour of outstanding packaging, as viewed by six design schools that have different cultural backgrounds.

Im Focus: Elucidating the Atomic Mechanism of Superlubricity

The phenomenon of so-called superlubricity is known, but so far the explanation at the atomic level has been missing: for example, how does extremely low friction occur in bearings? Researchers from the Fraunhofer Institutes IWM and IWS jointly deciphered a universal mechanism of superlubricity for certain diamond-like carbon layers in combination with organic lubricants. Based on this knowledge, it is now possible to formulate design rules for supra lubricating layer-lubricant combinations. The results are presented in an article in Nature Communications, volume 10.

One of the most important prerequisites for sustainable and environmentally friendly mobility is minimizing friction. Research and industry have been dedicated...
