        The themes of PulPaper, the leading forest industry event, are the circular economy and bio-based products http://www.pulp-paperworld.com/ex1/item/7704-the-themes-of-pulpaper-the-leading-forest-industry-event-are-the-circular-economy-and-bio-based-products http://www.pulp-paperworld.com/ex1/item/7704-the-themes-of-pulpaper-the-leading-forest-industry-event-are-the-circular-economy-and-bio-based-products

         2017 12 20 092529

        PulPaper is the leading exhibition and conference event in the forest industry’s calendar. It will be held in Helsinki, Finland on 29–31 May 2018. The forest industry is experiencing a transition period as the environmental impact of the sector is known better than before. The event programme takes this into consideration with a strong environmental perspective.

        The umbrella theme of the event is “Visit tomorrow today.” This refers to new innovations and technologies that the forest industry can harness to evolve in the digitalising world, while respecting the environment.

        PulPaper will feature a varied seminar programme on all three days of the event. Business Forum is a seminar for company management, focusing on themes ranging from consumer habits to sustainable development and from innovations to changes in management.

        PulPaper Conference, targeted at forest industry experts and researchers, will be held from 30 to 31 May. Forty experts, researchers and company representatives from the Nordic countries, Japan, North America, and other parts of the world will speak at the seminar.  The themes include the circular economy, biomass use, climate change, and biorefinery development.

        Environmental friendliness as competitive advantage

        Environmental standards are often seen as a burden on industry. However, PulPaper approaches this topic through opportunities. As environmental friendliness and responsible production are increasingly guiding the purchasing behaviour of consumers, innovations that cater to consumers’ wishes in terms of ecology, functionality, aesthetics and price level are emerging as competitive advantages for companies.

        PulPaper Conference swings the spotlight on many innovations that are revolutionising the whole industry. These include data-based sensors used in pulp industry wastewater treatment, a new catalytic bleaching method and the utilisation of industrial waste as an agricultural fertiliser. In addition, the conference will present a research project that seeks a breakthrough technology for chemical pulp production.

        Wooden future of packaging materials

        Plastic is the dominant packaging material the world over. Due to its long decomposition period, plastic waste places a great burden on the environment. Almost all fields of industry have started using bioplastic: electronics, agriculture, textiles and healthcare. Wood is envisioned as the renewable raw material of the future, which will be used in both packaging materials and textiles.

        PulPaper Conference will present solutions based on renewable wood materials to replace fossil-based materials. The Swedish startup Cellutech will reveal what new materials the company is currently developing from wood. The current development of bioplastics will also be reviewed. The Finnish packaging startup Sulapac will be presented as a business case that provides a great example of ingenious packaging design. Its packaging materials are made from wood and intended for cosmetics products. They turn ecology into a luxury. Sulapac has a competitive edge because it can compete in terms of price with comparable packaging materials made from plastic, and the material can be mass produced with the same equipment as plastic.

        PulPaper Conference will also deal with the use of forest biomass and the management of climate change. Speakers will address regulations related to the industry at the EU level and ponder the availability of biomass and related policies.

        3D printing of biomaterials

        The 3D Printing of Biomaterials seminar will also be held at PulPaper. When it comes to printing materials, the development of biomaterials opens up plenty of opportunities for new value-added uses of cellulose. 3D printing of biomaterials provides companies with a way to make cost-efficient customised products that save on materials and are environmentally sustainable. The seminar will present promising examples of cellulose-based insulation materials, for example.

        Admission to the PulPaper exhibition is free of charge. You can now register for the paid programmes - PulPaper Conference, Business Forum and 3D Printing of Biomaterials - at www.pulpaper.fi. In addition, you can sign up for two excursions to visit pioneering companies in the field. Visits to Metsä Group’s new Äänekoski bioproduct mill and Kotkamills’ board mill will be organised on 31 May and 1 June.

        Facts and figures

        Forest industry products account for about 20 per cent of Finnish exports, and the industry is important to the country’s success. The forest industry is a major employer, particularly in rural regions – it employs about 41,000 people directly and around 140,000 indirectly. Finland has 49 paper and pulp mills, and more than 200 industrial sawmills, panel factories and other companies manufacturing wood products. The current products will serve as the basis of business in the years ahead, too, as next-generation paper, packaging and wood products are developed continuously. In addition, new bioeconomy products and business functions are being developed alongside the current products. The bioeconomy will create new companies, jobs and prosperity.

        PulPaper, PacTec and Wood & Bioenergy are events with a wide-ranging focus on the forest industry. They will be held at Messukeskus in Helsinki on 29–31 May 2018. The event was last held in 2014, when it attracted visitors from 70 countries. About 400 companies will participate in the exhibition and around 10,000 visitors are expected.

          Archroma to highlight eco-advanced solutions for enhanced packaging and paper at TAPPI’s papercon 2018 http://www.pulp-paperworld.com/ex1/item/7691-archroma-to-highlight-eco-advanced-solutions-for-enhanced-packaging-and-paper-at-tappi-s-papercon-2018 http://www.pulp-paperworld.com/ex1/item/7691-archroma-to-highlight-eco-advanced-solutions-for-enhanced-packaging-and-paper-at-tappi-s-papercon-2018

          Archroma, a global leader in color and specialty chemicals, will be at TAPPI’s PaperCon 2018 to highlight Archroma’s solutions and expertise to enhance both the optical and functional properties of board and paper – with a special focus on sustainability.

          Archroma is at TAPPI’s PaperCon 2018, Booth #923. (Photo: Archroma)Archroma is at TAPPI’s PaperCon 2018, Booth #923. (Photo: Archroma)

          With a one million square foot facility in Martin, South Carolina, the company is one of only a few specialty chemical and dye manufacturers in the US dedicated to serving the paper and textile industry.

          Archroma strongly believes, based on its extensive experience in packaging and paper solutions, that sustainability can generate innovation, performance and can even lead to cost reductions for customers.

          Visitors at Booth #923 will be able to explore solutions for:

          Eco-advanced brightness and whiteness from concentrated Leucophor® liquids

          Archroma will take the opportunity of TAPPI’s PaperCon to introduce its new patented disulfonated fluorescent whitening agent (FWA), Leucophor® ACK liquid, to North American papermakers. Bringing a new ecological focus to the field of FWA, Archroma’s ultra-concentrated Leucophor® ACK liquid is free of urea and other additives that increase nitrogen load and COD in back- and wastewaters, while its higher actives content brings advantages of fewer deliveries, reduced freight costs, lower greenhouse gas emissions and better use of storage capacity. Leucophor® ACK liquid enables brilliant whiteness in stock and coating applications, and complies with major international eco-labels.

          New patented, urea-containing alternative, Leucophor® ACS liquid, retains the advantages of fewer deliveries, reduced freight costs, better use of storage capacity and a lower carbon footprint.

          • Leucophor® ACK liquid has been selected for the TAPPI’s PaperCon New Technology Showcase program. Archroma’s global OBA expert Andrew Jackson will deliver a short presentation of the technology on Tuesday, April 17, 2018 around 12:00pm.

          Stronger, more sustainable packaging and paper – Cartastrength® & Cartaseal®

          Archroma offers a unique system combining: 1) Its Cartastrength® process chemicals to increase the stability of corrugated fiberboard and allow manufacturers to achieve high levels of dry strength with lower amounts of fresh fibers; and 2) the coatings from its Cartaseal® range including fluorine-free alternatives to wax water barriers that facilitate recycling by breaking down during repulping without the need of further additives.

          Archroma will present at the booth the latest addition to the range, Cartastrength® HWM liq, which provides high performance wet strength in particular to tissue paper, whist coming in high solids form for low shipping and storage costs. Cartastrength® HWM liq is FDA compliant and displays lower AOX (Adsorbable organic halides) than typical Grade 1 products.

          Prevention of stickie and pitch contamination. Pulp & paper deposit control – Cartaspers®

          Pitch and stickies are the result of natural resin residues and other adhesive material found in wood fibers and in address labels or self-sealing envelopes. Both can seriously compromise recycled papermaking by clogging up machinery and causing unwanted agglomerations and deposits.

          Archroma’s Cartaspers® polymers can solve that problem in different ways. The latest innovation in the range, Cartaspers® PLH liquid, is a single-product breakthrough enabling easy and highly-effective control of pitch and stickies deposition especially in soft water pulp and papermaking environments. Pulp mill tests already report easier application, better performance and significant cost savings compared to alternative deposit control systems.

          Cartaspers® is a replacement for talc-based products; it is a liquid form solution offering both consistent quality and easier application than talc. Easy to use and effective in a wide variety of environments, our deposit control polymers reduce downtime, improve end-product quality and bring a host of other economic and ecological advantages.

          Eco-advanced, high performance oil and grease barrier for food packaging – Cartaguard®

          When applied to products such as fast food boxes and wrappers, pet food packaging, molded pulp plates and boxes containing bouillon cubes, Archroma’s Cartaguard® KST & KMP coatings provide strong and long-lasting barrier against grease and water.

          The series includes an additive that has been optimized for the production of molded pulp packaging and can be added to thick stock.
          These cationic fluoropolymers have been approved for food contact both by the American FDA and Germany’s Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR).

          Supporting the next generation of papermakers

          Last but not least, Archroma is a proud official sponsor of the TAPPI’s 14th Annual Runnability 5k Fun Run/Walk that will take place on Wednesday, April 18th, 2018. The event aims at helping bright students achieve a future career in the pulp and paper industry. All proceeds will go to supporting TAPPI’s Scholarship Funds.

          “At Archroma, we deliver innovative colors and chemicals to safely enhance your products and brands, while respecting the planet. As we like to say: It’s our nature! We strive to show customers how we can develop creative solutions together and reduce the environmental impact of their products and production processes,” comments Robin McCann, Head of Sales, North America, Packaging & Paper Specialties, at Archroma.

          Leucophor®, Cartastrength®, Cartaseal®, Cartaspers® and Cartaguard® are trademarks of Archroma registered in many countries.

              Japanese brand Mind Wave exhibited at Paperworld China for the first time. Mr Cheng Chun Xiao, Manager of Mind Wave (Official Agent in China) said: “The setup of Small yet Beautiful is ingenious and has been a big success. Many visitors saw our products from the showcase and visited our booth to further discuss cooperation opportunities with us.” Mind Wave manufactures and sells journals, stickers and other stationery products.

              Mr Zhang Chao Yong is the purchasing manager from Da Qing Zhi Sheng Stationery Office Equipment Co Ltd. He also shared: “The visit to Small yet Beautiful was eye-opening. We are in the retailing business and it is important for us to evolve with the market trends. I learnt a lot from the showcase such as the most popular product design and display that I can apply in our business.”

              Another special highlight of Paperworld China was the Hong Kong Graphic Arts Pavilion, which displayed innovate printing arts and products. Mr Graham Yung, Project Officer and Management Consultant at Hong Kong Productivity Council, said: “We would like to show to our target customers that Hong Kong printing arts are not only traditional printings, we incorporate innovative or eco-friendly elements to add value to the products.

              The Shanghai Journal Show, a special area that converged a strong number of designers and outstanding designed products such as journals, stickers and tapes, also gained tremendous success this year. The event opened on the last day of the fair and draw numerous buyers, some of which queued up whole night to wait for its opening.

              Mr Zhou Rong Tang visited the event to purchase stickers in floral and vintage patterns for his personal journals. He noted: “I found the products here very beautiful and crafty and I hope to see a larger scale next year. I think journals are becoming more popular in China and spreading across different generations. ”

              Oriental Sense promoted cultural designed products

              As an integral part of Paperworld China, this year’s Oriental Sense Zone converged nearly 70 renowned museums, emerging designers, design brands and quality manufacturers. Together, they displayed a whole range of products that combined with oriental elements or traditional craftsmanship, such as a notebook that highlighted the beauty of “Hanzi” (written Chinese characters), and a scarf that used traditional ink painting patterns, for example.

              For the 2017 edition, in cooperation with the Nanjing Museum Administration, fair organisers launched a 2017-2018 cultural products development programme, and invited around 100 emerging designers to create their own cultural products inspired by Nanjing's famed "Porcelain Tower".

              Ms He Xiang, Director of Culture development Department at the Nanjing Museum Administration, said: “The programme gathered so many talented designers and their creations are extraordinary. Over the last three years cooperating with Messe Frankfurt, I’ve witnessed that the product quality and the business results are improving, and we will continue this partnership.”

              Ms Li Yue Ping, Purchasing Manager at Beijing Xinyilede Commercial and Trade Co Ltd, visited the zone to source gift products with original and cultural designs. She said: “I like the atmosphere of the zone and the diversified range of products integrated with strong oriental elements, such as pens, tea cups, scarfs. I believe these kind of products will become more and more popular in the market in the future.”

              Apart from the dedicated zones and areas, the fair also welcomed pavilions from Chinese regions including Yiwu, Wenzhou, Qingyuan, Ningbo, Fujian and others. Together, they demonstrated the latest industry developments and trendy stationery products from their respective regions.

              Mr Sumir Kumar, a representative from Smiththerm Pvt Ltd, an India based trading company, shared: “I am here to source innovative, good for value stationery that I can export to Canada, India and Mexico. I was truly impressed by the product quality and inventive design. I have visited around 20 companies and will consider placing orders with some of them. This is a great platform to meet with direct stationery manufacturers. I will definitely come back next year.”

              Seminars and expert dialogue unveiled the development trends of stationery retail and cultural products

              Running alongside with the fair were a series of fringe events, which provided a range of forward-thinking ideas for the industry. One of such event was the “2017 YinLing Brand China Stationery & Book Industry Forum”. Mr Jiang Zheting, Marketing Director of ODS Design, was one of the speakers at the forum. He noted: “Nowadays, a conventional bookstore or stationery shop needs to evolve and provide a whole offerings of stationery, books, cultural products and leisure activities. We are here to share our thoughts and successful business models with the audience. The forum was packed and we were satisfied with the outcome.”

              Another worth mentioning forum was the “Seminar on Enhancing Design and Marketing for Chinese Museums’ Creative Products”. Discussing this event in particular, Mr Shiro Aoki, Senior Consultant and former Executive Director COO of Japan Institute of Design Promotion, commented: “The attending audience were all outstanding in their own field. It is a good platform to promote cooperation from different sectors and stimulate new ideas. This will help boost the development of the culture industry.”

              Meanwhile, to provide opportunities for the industry to connect with new generations, the fair organisers also arranged a “TEDxKids” talk, which allowed adults and children to share their views and thoughts. Chen Bo Ting was seven years old and attended the talk with his parents. He said: “I like the event. It provided the chance for the children to get inspired by the speeches and about the nature of the topics covered.”

                PulPaper looks to the future of the forest industry http://www.pulp-paperworld.com/ex1/item/7400-pulpaper-looks-to-the-future-of-the-forest-industry http://www.pulp-paperworld.com/ex1/item/7400-pulpaper-looks-to-the-future-of-the-forest-industry

                PulPaper is the leading international event in the forest industry’s calendar, and will be held at Messukeskus in Helsinki on 29–31 May 2018. The event acts as a global meeting place where visitors can get a comprehensive overview of the latest forestry technology. The previous event attracted visitors from a total of 70 different countries, and exhibitors from 30 countries are expected at PulPaper 2018.

                PulPaplogopvm600pxThe event was last held in 2014. Preparations for the 2018 event are now in full swing with regard to both the programme and sales. New technologies and innovations from start-ups will also be on display at the event. 

                Three other events will also be held at the same time as PulPaper: Wood, a new event in the field of mechanical wood processing; PacTec Helsinki, a packaging industry event; and the brand-new Bioenergy.

                In addition to comprehensive coverage of fields in the forest industry, the event programme as a whole also covers the packaging, energy and chemical industries to offer visitors and participating companies a chance to meet actors from many different industries.

                “Together, the events form a vast, synergetic programme in which each field supports the others. There is nothing comparable anywhere else in the world, and this new event programme supports integration within the forestry cluster. PulPaper offers a unique opportunity for uniting different fields in the forest industry,” says Messukeskus Sales Team Manager Marcus Bergström, who is in charge of the events.

                “PulPaper has received an enthusiastic reception. Almost all of the leading forest companies and equipment suppliers in the forest and packaging industries are attending, and their commitment has also encouraged other companies to reserve their exhibition spaces well ahead of the event,” says Hanna Koskela, Sales Manager.

                What does the future of the industry look like?

                The event’s theme – Visit tomorrow today – is clearly focused on the future. The programme includes both paid conferences and free lectures. Topics in PulPaper’s conference programme include the circular economy, 3D printing, the bioeconomy, climate change, digitalisation, and the opportunities afforded by the industrial internet. Practical examples from companies bring a concrete aspect to these visions of the future.

                Business Forum – a new seminar package targeted at company management – will be held on the opening day. Its speakers will be forefront opinion leaders from both Finland and abroad, and their topics will range from consumer habits to change management, and from innovation to sustainable development.

                The exhibition area’s Future Square stage will run a free programme focusing on the opportunities afforded by the bioeconomy and career outlooks for industry students. The programme will also be supplemented with visits to pioneering companies in the industry, such as the new bioproduct mill in Äänekoski.

                “Thanks to numerous new investments, the future looks bright for Finnish advancements in the bioforest industry. A lot of new things have been happening in the industry, and new products have come on the market. Expectations are high for the new event programme. PulPaper will have an extremely interesting and diverse conference programme reflecting the positive developments in the industry,” says Antti Lindqvist, CEO of Puunjalostusinsinöörit ry.

                The forest, packaging, energy and chemical industry events PulPaper, Wood, PacTec Helsinki and Bioenergy will be held at Messukeskus in Helsinki on 29–31 May 2018.

Especially at the exhibition forum participants will not only be informed but also inspired by the main topic “Industry 4.0” for new development opportunities in their companies. With the keynote speech under the heading  “Good sides, bad sides – Why the paper industry also has to reinvent itself,” web journalist and TV presenter Richard Gutjahr sensitized for the future topic on the first exhibition day:

                    “Not even one in two represents of the paper industry believes that the digitalization, the “Internet of Things” and the “Industry 4.0” will have a profound effect on the own business. But the lessons of history tell us that especially those who feel the safest will be hardest hit by the change. The lecture will show why the step from the analog to the hyper interlinked digital age will be bigger than the invention of the book printing and why no industry will remain untouched by this change.”

                    Practical knowledge-transfer

                              ZELLCHEMING-Expo 2017: Proven location, new hall http://www.pulp-paperworld.com/ex1/item/6964-zellcheming-expo-2017-proven-location-new-hall http://www.pulp-paperworld.com/ex1/item/6964-zellcheming-expo-2017-proven-location-new-hall

                              2016 12 16 065606

                              The exhibition ground in Frankfurt am Main remains venue of ZELLCHEMING-Expo until 2020. In close cooperation with the association ZELLCHEMING e.V. as patron of the event, the organizer Mesago Messe Frankfurt GmbH has decided to keep the previous location. Over a certain number of months, four different cities were under discussion. They had been analyzed and evaluated based on well defined criteria. In comparison, Frankfurt am Main achieved the best results. Petra Hanke, Managing Director of the association ZELLCHEMING e.V., explains the decision as follows:  

                              “In fact, the process was not easily done. The new location should be open for growth and is expected to offer development potential for new concepts and new collaborations. After having taken all criteria into consideration, Frankfurt provided the all-inclusive package in the end. For us it was very important that our members and visitors of the annual general meeting have a pleasant setting with an attractive environment and a good accessibility in future as well.”

                              Simone Pfisterer, Vice President at Mesago Messe Frankfurt GmbH, adds the location advantage: “The Main metropolis additionally offers the best infrastructural requirements. With its favorable geographical situation in the heart of Europe, Frankfurt is perfectly accessible by public transport for both exhibitors and visitors.”

                              New: Event located in hall 4.1.

                              In future ZELLCHEMING-Expo will be domiciled in hall 4.1 of the Frankfurt fairground. The change in halls will be implemented for the event in 2017. The exhibition will take place from 4 – 6 July 2017.

                              Hall 4.1 provides some infrastructural advantages: Directly placed in the middle of the exhibition ground, with a light-flooded foyer, the hall is best connected to the public transport system. Furthermore, hall 4.1 has own parking levels which are related directly with the area. There are various food and beverage offerings in close proximity and one café on the exhibition hall, as well. This improvement should allow very short and so efficient distances. 

                              Cooperative partnership remains

                              The Mesago Messe Frankfurt GmbH and the association ZELLCHEMING e.V. are looking forward to many future years of cooperative partnership.

                              “Together with Mesago it has been possible to professionalize and to develop ZELLCHEMING-Expo. We have set commonly established goals and are looking forward to meeting these together,” summarizes Petra Hanke.

                              Further information to the event are available at zellcheming-expo.com.

                                    European Paper Industry – Navigating towards the future

                                    The Confederation of European Paper Industries (CEPI) has kicked off registration for European Paper Week (EPW), taking place on 22-24 November in Brussels. The event will offer for the 18th time a unique opportunity to liaise with the movers and shakers in the European paper industry. This year, it promises exciting new features: more networking opportunities with a welcome cocktail, a new location at the Radisson Blu Royal Hotel in Brussels city centre and a focus on the key topic of future employee skills and education, to name but a few.

                                    2016 09 22 074034

                                    “European Paper Industry - Navigating towards the future” will be the overriding theme. Our sector is navigating in stormy weather, facing a significantly challenging political and economic climate. However, it has a clear vision for 2050. Indeed, EPW will see the launch of a reviewed 2050 Roadmap, examining 80% decarbonisation with 50% added value, five years after the highly-popular first edition.

                                    CEPI is honoured to have Financial Times chief foreign affairs commentator Gideon Rachman, as the moderator of the main EPW session. He and London Business school professor Lucrezia Reichlin will give valuable insights on the global economy and its impact on our industry. In addition, we will look deeply into the means to ensure the sector receives the necessary future investments.

                                    This year’s event will also be the first for recently-appointed CEPI Director General, Sylvain Lhôte, at the helm of the association since the beginning of September. With many years of experience in Brussels and other industries and a newcomer in the sector, Sylvain is ready to make a mark, starting at EPW.

                                    A detailed programme and registration information are available at www.cepi.org/epw. If you need any further information don’t hesitate to email us at epw@cepi.org.

                                    The event will be held in conjunction with the PPI 2016 Awards, taking place on 21 November.

                                    European Paper Week is one of the most important and respected highlights of the pulp and paper industry calendar. It brings together key players and representatives from across industry, related sectors and the European institutions, providing an annual platform for high-level debate on the issues that really matter to the paper industry. This year, the event will be held at the Radisson Blu Royal Hotel in the centre of Brussels, Belgium.

                                            “Accelerating demand for legal and sustainable timber represents both opportunities and challenges for the world's forest's, specifically in Asia,” said Ben Gunneberg, CEO of PEFC International, as he spoke at the Certification, Environment and Sustainability session on the first day of Asian Paper.

                                            “Certification must adapt to the constantly shifting sands of needs of people. We need to ensure that sustainable forest management equally balances the environmental, social and economic pillars of sustainability, we need to find common ground between global demand side requirements and local supply side expectations," Mr. Gunneberg explained.  

                                            "By working through a bottom-up approach, by convening all interested parties at both national and international levels in ongoing dialogues, PEFC is well placed to build a bridge between local and global and to advance an understanding of sustainability that we all can feel comfortable with," Mr. Gunneberg highlighted.

                                            Alongside Ben’s ‘fireside chat’ with other forestry experts to address sustainable forestry, realizing dollars and the value of sustainability, we also had our PEFC booth at the heart of the Asian Paper to provide information, initiate debate and raise awareness throughout the two day conference.

                                            Spotlight on Thailand.

                                            tfcc launchWith so much progress under foot in Thailand towards enhancing the legal and sustainable trade and production in the wood-based and forest sector, PEFC and Federation of Thai Industries (FTI) co-hosted a special afternoon session within Asian Paper to shine the spotlight on Thailand.  

                                            During the event, dozens of stakeholders came together celebrate progress in developing the Thai national certification system and to share perspectives for enhancing the sustainability of the Thai forestry sector through PEFC certification.

                                            “Now that the Thailand Forest Certification Council is officially registered within FTI we have completed all the requirements and look forward to becoming a member of PEFC,” announced Dr. Nihkom, Chair of the TFCC. “Joining PEFC’s international alliance will give Thailand prominence and recognition for all the work we are doing to advance sustainability within our country.”

                                            “I would like to congratulate all the stakeholders who have worked so hard over the past years to achieve this significant step towards the PEFC endorsement of a Thai Forest Certification System,” said Mr. Gunneberg, as he made the announcement. “We look forward to welcoming Thailand as a National member once they have been voted in by our PEFC members.”

                                            The announcement follows an important development on 11 May when the Ministry of Natural Resource and Environment, the Ministry of Industry Thailand, and Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives came together to form the Institute Agro-based Industry (IAI) under FTI. It was acknowledged that the Institute will be responsible for running the Thailand Forest Certification Council.

                                                  How do we want to make the world more sustainable? http://www.pulp-paperworld.com/ex1/item/6559-how-do-we-want-to-make-the-world-more-sustainable http://www.pulp-paperworld.com/ex1/item/6559-how-do-we-want-to-make-the-world-more-sustainable

                                                  How do consumers want to get a more sustainable world? What sacrifices, measures and opportunities do we see, today and in the long term? How do we feel about a transformation in which raw materials from the forest are used to manufacture new products? A new report from Innventia investigates the actual conditions for a more circular and biobased society. 2,500 consumers from five countries have had their say on how we can best make the world more sustainable.

                                                  innventia logoInnventia's latest report, Innventia Global Outlook: A Cellulose-Based Society, investigates the conditions for a transition to a circular and biobased society. What global changes, future opportunities and constraints do we have to deal with? How do the views of consumers differ in different parts of the world? How do we best accept responsibility for the development we see before us? This is Innventia's third report in a series of forward-looking reports that have gained a lot of international attention.

                                                  Together with Kairos Future, Innventia has completed a consumer study in Sweden, Germany, the United States, Brazil and China. 2,500 consumers were asked about sustainability, the environment, lifestyles and impact. The report reveals several surprising results regarding where consumers really are, in thought and deed, prior to a switch to a more circular and sustainable society.

                                                  The key insights from the report will be presented on 24 May, when representatives of Innventia and Kairos Future will be on hand.

                                                  Time: 16:30-18:00, 24 May 2016

                                                  The report, A Cellulose-Based Society, comprises an international survey, a global analysis and future scenarios. The survey was distributed digitally at the start of 2016 to 2,500 people between the ages of 16 and 88 in five countries (500 respondents per country in Sweden, Germany, the United States, Brazil and China).

                                                    In the wet end it is extremely important to have detailed information about the charges of particles in the pulp suspension, which can be determined by the CAS Charge Analyzing System. The latest version of this equipment is the smallest and lightest than ever! Beside this, the knowledge about the surface charge of the pulp fibers, which can be measured with the lab equipment FPA Fiber Potential Analyzer is also important.

                                                    With the innovative ACA Ash Content Analyzer it is possible to determine the total mineral filler content as well as the percentage content of the typical fillers of the paper within seconds.

                                                            Swanline Paper & Board, the recently launched materials division of Swanline Print Ltd, will make its event debut with a stunning new range of sustainable substrates at Sign & Digital UK (19-21 April, NEC), the UK’s premier sign making, display solutions and digital printing event.

                                                            2016 03 31 091313Visitors to Stand H54 will find themselves surrounded by a vista of market-leading graphics that represent the unique proposition from Swanline through its linked supply chain of Swanline Paper & Board, Swanline Print and the joint venture business Corrboard - a manufacturer of corrugated board. Swanline Paper & Board will be showcasing an impressive new range of products under the Cygnus banner, including single face corrugated, litho top liners, folding box boards, display boards, foam PVC, smooth twin-wall polypropylene and aluminium composite – amongst others.

                                                            The company is especially excited about the launch of its Cygnus Display Board which will be unveiled at the show. An FSC certified double sided coated product, the Cygnus board is ideal for digital printing since its unique manufacturing process gives it excellent stability, ensuring the board remains flat throughout the process. Cygnus is a lightweight alternative to similar available boards and is fully recyclable and biodegradable.

                                                            Swanline Paper & Board is particularly proud of its commitment to providing “cost neutral sustainability” across much of its product range. Managing director Ross Griffin explained: “Sustainability is becoming a massive focus for the printing and packaging sector and buy-in from customers is almost universal. However, environmentally friendly solutions have often proved to be more expensive than regular equivalents so companies have had to make a hard choice. That’s where we come in.

                                                            “Even as Swanline Paper & Board was being established we made the conscious decision to take a stand for sustainability by focusing on products that could meet industry demands not only in terms of performance, flexibility and innovation, but also from an eco-friendly angle – but for the same or lower cost as the traditional equivalents. The response so far has been incredible and we’re delighted that Sign & Digital will give us the opportunity to show many more organisations how they can make the most of cost neutral sustainability in substrates.”

                                                            Swanline Print is the specialist 100% trade-only services provider to the corrugated packaging and point-of-sale markets. The launch of its innovative new Paper & Board division created a linked supply chain offered by no other UK merchant, enabling customers to benefit from this synergy and multi-million pound investments in technology made by the group – including two class-leading wide format digital printers ideal for rapid turnaround projects.

                                                            Swanline Print offers an unrivalled portfolio of print, conversion and finishing services available under one roof. The company invests in specialist machinery so its customers don’t have to, and has a team of experts - including an award-winning constructional design team - on hand to advise every step of the way and help to enhance the quality and turnaround time of any POS or packaging project, from functional counter displays and shelf ready packaging to elaborate novelty packs and floor standing display units.

                                                              With Papermaking 4.0, Voith is introducing its networked solutions to increase the efficiency, productivity and quality of the entire paper production process supply chain. In addition, Voith will be showcasing NipcoFlex T, a shoe press developed to reduce energy con-sumption and raw material in tissue production. At Tissue World, which is taking place in New Orleans from March 15 to 17, trade visitors will find Voith at stand E 240.

OnCare facilitates the maintenance management of paper machines, from planning, servicing and documenta-tion through cost control to spare parts management. The permanent monitoring of the entire paper machine allows optimization potentials to be identified and preventive maintenance measures to be planned and implemented. Preventive maintenance reduces unscheduled downtimes and the paper machine’s availability will increase. Unlike conventional software solutions, OnCare represents a complete maintenance concept, with the distinctive feature being that data are already embedded in the software system. Likewise, it is possible to integrate OnCare in existing systems.

                                                              In addition, Voith also developed OnEfficiency to maximize the paper ma-chine’s potential. OnEfficiency Forming gets right to the process at the heart of papermaking: sheet formation. This is measured and analyzed with a package of sensors so that dewatering, retention and flocculation can be stabilized and at the same time coordinated. As a result of the sta-ble process, raw materials and chemicals can be saved and energy usage reduced. Voith is a specialist in the entire paper manufacturing process and ensures that its customers benefit from a dependable documentation of practical experience in papermaking process management.

                                                              The increase in machine efficiency and improvement of paper quality are also at the core of the NipcoFlex T. At various paper mills, the innovative shoe press from Voith has already demonstrated that it can increase productivity and reduce costs. NipcoFlex T offers the benefits of up to 5% higher dry content, representing up to 20% thermal energy savings or up to 20% higher production, while maintaining the same or better paper quality. The production parameters of the press can be monitored online and re-adjusted if necessary.

                                                              Alfredo Sarli, Sales Manager at Voith Paper Air Systems, will be providing further insights into the latest work on tissue papers in his presentation “Energy Optimization of the Yankee Dryer Hood” to be held at 9:10 am on March 16, 2016 at the conference running alongside Tissue World.

Driven on the one hand by brand owners’ increasing demands for greater differentiation, personalisation and a more engaging relationship with consumers, and on the other hand by the increasing availability of new and disruptive technologies, the printing requirements for the global packaging industry are expected to undergo major change over the next decade, with ever higher quality and faster digital printing expected to take share from traditional printing methods. Dominic will examine the main opportunities and barriers to growth and how the printing industry can best meet the future demands of the global packaging sector.

                                                                2016 03 03 102000Sean Smyth, who has spent over 25 years as a consultant in the print industry, will analyse disruptive trends in functional and industrial printing in a talk that focuses on the rapidly emerging use of printing-for-profit in novel areas outside the traditional graphics and packaging arenas. Inkjet is being adopted strongly in many areas of functional printing – promotional items, glass, electronics, décor, and 3D. Additive manufacturing is being studied in pure and applied research labs in universities, and at large companies, with new fluids and techniques being brought to market. Sean will outline the findings of Smithers Pira research into the sector, presenting highlights from the recently published market report The Future of Functional and Industrial Print to 2020

The event will take place next October 06, 07 and 08, at the Transamérica Expo Center, in São Paulo. 

                                                                        By paying the registration, visitors assure, in advance, their attendance to the Congress, whose main subject this year will be Innovation focused on Economy, Energy and Bio-Inspired Materials, essential to the continuous improvement of all field players. For Francisco Valério, Congress president, such space is crucial to bring visibility to the presented papers, which highlight the latest trends in the industry. 

                                                                        “Besides, I believe there is an exchange of information occurring for the last two years, because people attending the Congress are skilled and have a lot of knowledge to share”, he comments.  So, the event technical sessions will have special emphasis, with important works being presented by world-renowned researchers, from similarly renowned institutions. 

                                                                        Such is the case of the presentation of Luiz Ramos, Associate Professor in the Chemistry Department of the Federal University of Paraná (UFPR), which will focus on the production of cellulosic ethanol from eucalyptus wood chips with steam pretreatment methods (self-hydrolysis) followed or not by alkaline delignification. 

                                                                        “Aspects related to enzymatic hydrolysis under high total solids content will be presented, using the latest generation enzymes, and the conversion yields will be compared to those obtained from raw materials of agricultural origin, such as sugarcane bagasse. This approach will allow comparing these two models and will open a discussion on the feasibility of this initiative for the sector”, he highlights. 

                                                                        He still notes his lecture will be oriented towards the discussion of premises directing the implementation of bio-refinery activities and the perspectives such option could bring to the industry. For the academic, ABTCP is the main national forum for the discussion of state of the art and innovation in all processes involved in the manufacture of pulp and paper, including the evaluation of new market trends. 

                                                                        “And this extends to the search for new niches, based on sustainable technologies, for the production of chemical products, biofuels and biomaterials whose production is associated with the concept of bio-refineries. Therefore, it’s  an essential event to establish contacts and expand horizons, the ideal condition for those wishing to keep up with information and updated with the major trends of a market in constant evolution”, Ramos stresses. 

                                                                        International Experiences

                                                                        History and evolution of pulp and paper industry in Portugal, and particularly in the companies associated to the Portugal Paper Industry Association (CELPA), will be taught by Marta Souto Barreiros, Forest Engineer of the entity, with special emphasis on efficiency and sustainability in water use and its critical analysis. 

                                                                        The specialist believes the main challenge for the industry, on a worldwide basis, is the substantial reduction of consumption and improved utilization of water resources in the production of pulp for paper. “The companies associated to CELPA have made great efforts aiming at the partial or total closure of their circuits, with the intention of minimizing the use of water and, eventually, be able to operate with zero discharge”, she highlights. 

                                                                        According to Marta, in the last 100 years there has been a major progress in the European companies of the sector, which reduced their specific consumption from 300m3/ton to something between 20-30m3/ton. In her opinion, the Brazilian pulp and paper industry enjoys strong dynamism and international reputation. “An event of this nature will allow the dissemination and knowledge of new projects, technologies and the best that has been done in various areas of industry. It also brings the opportunity, for both Brazilian and other countries technicians, to exchange experiences and ideas”, she believes. 

                                                                        On his turn, Michael Paleologou, Canadian, a specialist in Chemical Analyses, Biomass, Industrial Paper and Product Development, from FP Innovations, will talk about the opportunities for chemicals recovery in Kraft pulp plants, based on the latest technologies developed by his company through the years. “Such technologies will be discussed with respect to their main features, as well as their technical feasibility, process integration and economy”, he says. 

                                                                        According to him, such resources can also be used in Brazil, recovering chemical products from waste or process flows, and may result in significant savings concerning chemicals or help to diversify the products portfolio in Kraft pulp mills. “Lignin can be used in several high value applications, such as: phenolic resins, thermoplastic polyurethane foams, and also as dispersers and flocculants”, explains the expert. 

                                                                        Paleologou highlights that the 48th Pulp and Paper International Congress offers a unique opportunity for learning new technologies and products, as well as a chance of meeting other industry professionals and discuss matters of common concern and interest.

                                                                          epwThe Confederation of European Paper Industries (CEPI) has opened the registration for European Paper Week 2015, taking place on 17-19 November in Brussels. This year’s 17th edition promises aneven wider range of topics, incorporating new features such as a session on the European pulp and paper market outlook by RISI Economists. The overriding theme is Paper Industry 4.0.

                                                                          CEPI is honoured to have renowned economist Jeremy Rifkin as the event’s keynote speaker, prolonging a tradition of exceptional guest speakers. Mr. Rifkin is president of the Foundation on Economic Trends and the author of 20 books about the impact of scientific and technological changes on the economy, the workforce, society, and the environment.

                                                                          Industry 4.0 has monopolised the headlines of events and articles alike this year. Shedding some light on this relatively elusive concept, CEPI, in collaboration with StepChange Consulting (also the event’s platinum sponsor) and SITRA (the Finnish Innovation Fund) will publish a report covering existing Industry 4.0 examples in the pulp and paper industry. This publication is prepared on the basis of an industry-wide survey as well as one-to-one interviews with prominent industry leaders.

                                                                          As is the case every year, European Paper Week will bring participants the most up-to-date, essential information from the highest levels of Brussels policymaking. Commission representatives will explain what shape Industry 4.0 is currently taking in the EU Institutions’ work, while info sessions on EU policies such as the Emissions Trading System and the Circular Economy will provide an insight to the EU’s future plans for our industry.

                                                                          US ‘How Life Unfolds’ campaign programme director Mary Anne Hansan is also invited for the first time to Europe. She will talk about this industry-driven multi-million dollar campaign to help create consumer appreciation for our industry’s products. This illustrated example will put the difficult topic of the public’s perception of paper products on the table, sparking a debate on whether or not the European industry should follow the footsteps of its American counterparts.

                                                                          Participants will have the privilege of seeing the industry’s most innovative products at an exciting exhibition. These will have been chosen to feature in CEPI’s new “20 most innovative products” publication, also launched at the event. Finally, this year’s European Paper Week will attest the Two Team Project’s legacy. The winning concept - Deep Eutectic Solvents - consortium will share the latest research on the project that has the potential to revolutionise the future of pulpmaking.

                                                                          To register, go to www.cepi.org/epw. The early bird fee ends on 30 September. If you have any questions, please contact Annie Xystouris at a.xystouris@cepi.org mobile: +32(0)486 24 36 42.

                                                                              The Pulp and Paper International Congress, this year in its 48th edition,  will take place from October 06th to 08th at the Transamerica Expo Center, in São Paulo, and establishes itself as a reference in the global agenda of industry technical events. It’s a great opportunity for the visitor to get acquainted with the trends which will permeate the future of the sector, as well as to attend the discussions with the leading experts in the pulp and paper industry. 

                                                                              This year, the Congress theme will focus on the interface “Innovation and Competitiveness” and, in parallel, the 1st Ibero-American Conference will discuss Bio-Economy, as a concurrent event, carried out jointly with ABTCP 2015, under the central theme “Innovation”, with focus on Economy, Energy and Bio-inspired Materials – BEM 2015 - organized by Riadicyp - Red Iberoamericana de Docencia e Investigación en Celulosa y Papel (Ibero-American Network for Teaching and Research on Pulp and Paper). 

                                                                              “The Congress is essential to bring visibility to the work carried out inside ABTCP itself. The entity counts on several technical committees, such as Cellulose, Environment, Energy, Maintenance, Recovery and Energy, besides additional production process steps.  So, such participation and share of information between them brings much value, as the expertise of professionals from the pulp and paper sector and from Riadicyp experts will be added”, highlights Francisco Valério, president of ABTCP Congress. 

                                                                              Over the years, more and more attention has been given to carry on simultaneous events to ABTCP Congress, as a means to add value to the speeches and promote interaction between academic researchers and industry professionals, manufacturers and suppliers, among others, about successful experiments in pulp mills of major global players. “I believe such exchange of information has been occurring over the years, because people attending the Congress are qualified and have a lot of knowledge to share”, reminds Valério.

                                                                              For Song Won Park, from São Paulo University (USP), who will chair the 1st Ibero-American Conference on Bio-Economy, ABTCP Congress will enhance the relationship between industry professionals, besides presenting scientific papers from several Ibero-American countries. “The initiative of Riadicyp members, attending ABTCP Congress, will certainly work for enriching the various subjects already traditionally addressed annually by the Association", states Park.

                                                                              For the last years ABTCP has been working hard in order to improve its processes and add value to all activities developed to the industry professionals. “In this context, the Annual International Congress has received special attention, since it is our main technical event", states Darcio Berni, ABTCP Executive Director. 

                                                                              Still, according to Valério, the event, which aggregates the Exhibition of technologies parallel to the Congress, is also an essential moment to professional training. “The Congress is a complement of the work developed throughout the year by ABTCP Technical Committees and seminars, on several subjects related to paper, pulp and environment, among others. This combination helps, and helps a lot, the professional training”, he says. 

                                                                              In his opinion, another issue which will be emphasized during the three days of the event in 2015 will be the ultimate inclusion of the topic sustainability in the business vision of the sector’s companies. “Reputation, governance, respect to human rights, the environment, products quality, everything is related to sustainability in a long term strategy. I would say that, in this century, more and more, such intangible items will have a greater importance. It is a market survival issue", he explains.

                                                                              Parallel Conference

                                                                              Researches related to the interaction of forest based businesses with the new bio-economy will be presented during this joint event, in 2015; efficient use of resources, with sustainable management and consumption of materials; the integration of the forest based biomaterials sector with the renewable energy sector; among others.

                                                                              Seven topics will be discussed during ABTCP Congress and the 1st Ibero-American Conference on Bio-Economy, such as the market for lignocellulosic materials, pulp and paper; forest based biomaterials, bio refinery and biotechnology; production of pulp, nanotechnology, delignification and bleaching; production of paper, advanced applications, nanotechnology and recycling; and other matters  like chemical recovery and concepts of energy efficiency; engineering of process systems, including automation; environmental management; packaging and tissue paper.

                                                                              According to Park, ABTCP Congress, besides being of technical relevance, is also a useful tool to historical analysis. “The initial Congress editions, when the technology of pulping and bleaching of Kraft eucalyptus cellulose was discussed, still are unique reference sources for young researchers”, he exemplifies.

                                                                              He believes that a very effective internationalization cycle in discussed themes occurred in the last decade.  Due to this fact, ABTCP and Riadicyp, joined forces to set up this event in the current model of "Held Jointly", in other words, events which are organized in conjunction, where several conferences combine their activities. “It will be a very productive exchange of experiences among the participants of both events, as already happed in 2012, under this format, during the 45th ABTCP, which was arranged in total combination with VII CIADICYP”, he highlights.

                                                                              Exhibition

It is a modern and dynamic structure which offers to more than eight thousand visitors a unique opportunity to build relationship with key suppliers and manufacturers in the industry, bringing customers and partners together by concentrating, in one place, national and international companies working throughout pulp and paper production chain.

                                                                              Since 2013, the Association keeps on making changes in the Congress and Exhibition, positively perceived by the attendees, such as expanding the scope of presented themes, investments in the physical structure of the event, placing the Congress and the Exhibition in the same area, and bringing increasingly renowned speakers encompassing the most diversified and essential topics in the forest area.

For this purpose, the hobby & crafts element was added to the show’s portfolio in 2013 and continues to receive overwhelmingly positive feedback from the exhibitors. In 2015, Paperworld China and the DIY Industry Promotion Council of Shanghai Creative Industry Association have joined forces again to launch the Creative Pavilion, which is expected to house more exhibitors and a larger exhibition space.

In particular, the post-80s and 90s generation consumer groups pursue unique experience and original innovation, which propel the huge demand for hobby & craft products. To date, there are more than 1,000 websites in China dedicated to hobby & craft enthusiasts, which have almost 400 million members. Just in Taobao alone, the e-commerce giant in China, there are 130,350 individual shops solely for hobby & craft products, materials, tools and related items.

While upgrading original design and innovation capability, Chinese enterprises must strengthen their intellectual property rights consciousness to protect their rights and interests when launching new products in overseas markets.  
                                                                                In response to the pressing issue, one of the show’s fringe events will be hosted by eminent intellectual property lawyers who will closely examine intellectual property rights and related issues, which are often encountered by Chinese enterprises. The seminar will encompass an introduction to intellectual property rights, case studies as well as the latest trends and overseas promotion channels.

Carteaux. “The only way to do this in a way that has long-lasting, real-world results is by engaging the entire plastics supply chain, and that’s exactly why GIE Media makes for a great partner. By partnering with GIE, SPI will be able to reach recycling and manufacturing professionals through five different GIE media brands, including Recycling Today, expanding the reach of SPI’s message to even more manufacturers, processors, brand owners and sustainability-minded professionals. This expanded reach simply augments the community SPI has built through its own properties, such as NPE, and will help to bring the entire supply chain together for Re|focus.”

Both events aim to empower professionals in the recycling industry with the market  insight and professional connections they need to solve the most pressing problems facing today’s recycling industry,” said James R. Keefe, executive vice president and group publisher, GIE Media. “This partnership will enable GIE to leverage SPI’s properties in order to attract more plastics professionals interested in post-consumer and post-industrial recovery and processing to the Paper & Plastics Recycling Conference, enhancing the value that our event provides to its attendees and ultimately the value they bring back to their companies.”

                                                                                  The two-year partnership between SPI and GIE Media means both groups will provide programming for the other, while also assisting with speaking recruitment. Both SPI and GIE will sponsor and exhibit at the other’s event as well.

                                                                                  For SPI, this makes GIE Media its latest promotion partner for Re|focus. SPE’s Plastics Environment Division has also been announced as a programming partner, providing technical content on recycling and the manufacturing of plastic products with recycled content.

                                                                                      The company emtec Electronic GmbH attended the Russian „RosUpack 2015“ in June in Moscow. In the red emtec corner in hall 2 of the exhibition, visitors were able to talk to specialists from emtec in Germany and from the representative company Sigma Micron in Russia. In particular, producers and converters of paper and board as well as suppliers of chemicals, glue, coating color, printing ink, but also institutes can indeed be very well supported by the emtec measuring instruments.

                                                                                      2015 06 26 094945

                                                                                      In the converting process of paper and board sometimes problems occur in the gluing, coating and printing process, but the reason is unclear, as the specifications are according to standard testing instruments. Nobody knows if it is due to the quality of the paper or the glue, coating color or printing ink.

                                                                                      The company emtec developed a method to find out the reason. In Moscow one of the solutions was presented - the EST12 Surface & Sizing Tester. In order to predict the interaction between paper or board and the liquid during coating, printing and gluing, the device characterizes the surface parameters of paper and board, which are relevant for the converting process, in the process-relevant time. Its application leads to the optimization of the production and converting processes and therefore to reducing the costs and achieving respectively improving the quality of the product.

                                                                                      Problems in the quality of the finished product can also be caused by non-optimal process control in the wet end area of paper and board production. emtec Electronic has presented two essential measuring devices for the optimization of wet end area: the CAS Charge Analyzing System for determining the particle charge and the FPA Fiber Potential Analyzer for measuring the Zeta Potential of fibers in the suspension. Both help to guarantee and improve the targeted properties of finished products and to reduce the consumption of chemicals.

The two day show hosts the world’s most creative packaging solutions, offering its visitors the unique opportunity to source new ideas, innovations and suppliers - all under one roof.

                                                                                              With leading brands already signed up to exhibit at the 2015 show, including Eckart, Fleet Luxury, HH Deluxe Packaging, DS Smith, Iggesund Paperboard, Billerudkorsnäs and Woerner + Cie, Luxury Packaging London has reaffirmed its place as the leading event of its kind. Many exhibitors are set to use the show to launch new products and services to the packaging market.

                                                                                              Winter & Company will be launching Touché, a soft and luxurious covering material, with a silky matte finish, for premium and luxury packaging.

                                                                                              Few could argue that personalisation is a vital aspect of luxury packaging. With this in mind, Jung Design will be exhibiting its personalised gift wrap and tissue paper, showcasing the importance of elegant wrappings for high quality products, and how it gives the product a touch of luxury.

                                                                                              For those interested in luxury bags and boxes, look no further than the Procos stand. On show will be its new Basket Bag, which offers a unique and practical alternative to the classic, bottom side folding construction. Leander Kritikos, Director at Procos commented: “We wanted to develop something completely unique in the world of shopping bags, so we’re really excited to introduce a genuine alternative to the classic rectangular, side-folding base construction. The basket bag has a lot of personality, with a rounded body that’s easily assembled and held together by snap buttons, it’s an eye-catching innovation that also reduces material consumption!”

                                                                                              Following the same theme will be Wrapology, who will be presenting its luxury gift boxes, labels, swing tags and branded paper bags. Stribbons will also be using the 2015 event to showcase its gift packaging designs, which include Flat Packed and Rigid Boxes, embellished to the customer's specification.

                                                                                              Addmaster will be giving visitors a sensory stimulation, with its Scentmaster fragrance technology. Smell is perhaps the most evocative emotion, so this technology has been designed to keep the fragrance in your product, or deodorise unwanted smells, making it more appealing to customers.  Manufactured in a unique way it ensures all the fragrance is protected, allowing it to deliver the subtle top notes of a high quality scent.

                                                                                              Eska-Graphic & Board will be presenting its Eskaboard, a graphic solid board, made from 100% recovered paper. One major feature is its lay flat, stay flat properties, meaning it remains flat after being converted. It boasts a smooth and even surface with accurate calipers and sizes that produce a board that has optimum runability on all machines. Also easy to die-cut, rotary cut, crease, score, drill, punch, groove, emboss and deboss.

                                                                                              Leonhard Kurz, a leader in hot stamping and coating technology, will be displaying its LUXOR for gold and metallic colours and ALUFIN for silver grades of aluminium metalised foils. Its standard program comprises of extensive and diverse qualities and colours, designed for all sectors.
