The EMPACK 2016, LABEL&PRINT 2016 and PACKAGING INNOVATION 2016 salons will be held in parallel in Zürich from 6 to 7 April 2016.
These three salons will bring together international manufacturers to inform industry of new packaging solutions and labeling across all industrial sectors.
During these two days, as part of learnShops ™, these salons will offer presentations and expert lectures on topical issues about technologies of packaging and printing, and about materials.
The appointment "Packaging Innovations" will be held in conjunction with the “Empack” and “Label & Print” salons in Birmingham (24 & 25 February 2016).
On the occasion of this salon, international manufacturers present their latest trends and innovations in printing material, sustainable packaging, materials, design, machinery, equipment...
During the salon, will be held conferences dedicated to the pharmaceuticals and to beverages.

This report, published in January 2014 by the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency), provides information on bisphenol A (BPA), its use in the manufacture of thermal paper and on alternatives to such use. Based on interviews with technical experts, including stakeholders, EPA has identified nineteen alternatives. In addition to information about the potential dangers of BPA and possible alternatives, information on the technical and economic tradeoffs associated with each option are presented.
Bisphenols F and S are organic compounds, their chemical formulas are respectively C13H12O2and C12H10O4S and their CAS number are respectively 620-92-8 and 80-09-1.
Identified sources of bisphenols F and S are exclusively anthropogenic. Bisphenol F is used in epoxy resins and thermal papers, bisphenol S is used in epoxy resins, polycarbonate, polyethersulphone, thermal papers, phenolic resins and polyester resins.
The report published in 2011 by the Danish EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) is the conclusion of a study conducted in Denmark on the risks associated with the migration of BPA from receipts, and from the collars of physiologic pacifiers composed of polycarbonate. Alternatives are proposed for these two applications.
This report, published in 2004 by the Danish EPA (Environmental Protection Agency), details the different uses of BPA and the possible alternatives to its use in drinks cans and food tins, polycarbonate items, thermal paper and printer ink.
