Edition Spéciale by LUXE PACK has just announced its hotly anticipated keynote speaker for the show's 2023 edition. François Danel will take to the stage on the first day of the Paris-based sustainable packaging trade show to lift the lid on his start-up Earthwake Enterprise, a French association that commercializes a technology to transform plastic waste into energy for use in emerging economies.
François Danel, the Managing Director of Earthwake Enterprise, is confirmed as the keynote speaker at upcoming luxury packaging event Edition Spéciale by LUXE PACK. On June 7th at 10.30am, Danel will discuss the genesis of Earthwake, a company created with French actor Samuel Le Bihan and an offshoot the Earthwake Association. Earthwake Enterprise commercializes Chrysalis, a solution that transforms PE and PP plastic waste into fuel via pyrolysis. The process is said to be self-sufficient as the fuel it produces is used to power the technology.
With Chrysalis, the start-up aims to combat plastic packaging waste and respond to a pressing need for locally produced energy in underdeveloped regions. The goal is also to encourage collection of waste before it reaches the oceans. Of the 370 tons of plastic packaging waste that will be produced this year, 11 million tons are set to end up in the ocean, according to Earthwake.
Edition Spéciale is taking place at Paris’ Carreau du Temple on June 7-8. In addition to the luxury packaging suppliers showcasing their offers and a comprehensive conference program, the exhibition will also host a dedicated materials area featuring Woola, Auressens and Lebiu Design among other 'next-gen' materials providers.
