The CEO of the GRT Group Luca Dal Fabbro will participate on 22 May to the meeting “The Hearth of the Circular Economy”, in the context of the “Sustainable Development Festival 2018”, that will be held from 6.30 pm at the Samsung Smart Arena (Via Mike Bongiorno 9, Milan). During the Executive Meeting, the main themes regarding the circular economy will be analyzed and discussed, highlighting how this paradigm represents a winning model that can generate value while ensuring sustainability. In particular, the Round Table will focus on one of the least explored aspects of the circular economy: the valorization of intangible resources. During the debate, Luca Dal Fabbro will present the ideas and observations contained in his recent book “L’economia del Girotondo – Dalla plastica ai satelliti: il futuro è nei rifiuti”. He will also support the need to tackle the environmental challenges, of which the issue of plastic in the seas is the emblem par excellence, resorting to concrete solutions: new systems for energy efficiency, advanced storage systems, recovery of non-recycled plastic. At the meeting, moderated by Maria Luisa Pezzali (Radio24, Il Sole 24 Ore), will attend also Sonia Cantoni (Board Member Cariplo Foundation), Mario Calderini (Vice President Milan Polytechnic Foundation), Luca Angelantoni (Board Member of the Cassa di Risparmio Foundation of Turin), Karina Litvack (Board Member of Eni) e Tommaso Santini (Managing Director of the Ca’ Foscari Foundation). The round table is sponsored by the Cariplo Foundation, the Ca’ Foscari Foundation and the Milan Polytechnic Foundation.
07.04.2018 – GRT Group at the Climate Show 2018: Luca Dal Fabbro presents the two leading technologies of the group
Luca Dal Fabbro, CEO of GRT Group, will participate on Saturday, April 7th, at the “Climate Show“, the exhibition dedicated to technologies and services in the field of green energy, sustainable construction, eco-mobility and fight to climate change. Dal Fabbro will contribute to the “From Research to Market” workshop and will talk about the development experience and the application of Hyform PEMFC, the new system that produces electricity from formic acid in a sustainable, convenient, safe and efficient manner, developed by the Group in collaboration with the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL). The workshop will also be attended by Philippe Nasch – representative of Alliance Pour Innovation – and Sophie Jullian – CEO of Satt Pulsalys – who will discuss how best to support innovative companies in the green economy, facilitating the transfer of knowledge and technologies from research to business. On the same day, GRT Group will participate, selected together with only seven other companies, in a Pitch Time in front of a jury of investors who will award the “most promising company” in the sector. Luca Dal Fabbro will present on this occasion the plastic to fuel technology, which allows to produce clean, ready-to-use fuel from non-recyclable plastic.
GRT Group and EPFL (École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne) are happy to invite you to the Hyform PEMFC presentation. The machine is the world first integrated Formic Acid Fuel Cell 1 kWe system, and it allows to convert formic acid into Hydrogen, and then into electricity in an energetically efficient way. That constitutes an innovative energy storage solution that supports the energetic transition from fossil fuels to renewables. The demo unit is the result of a collaboration of EPFL lab team, guided by Professor Gábor Laurenczy, and GRT Group engineers. The project was financed by the OFEN (Office fédéral de l’énergie) and by GRT Group. You can download an invitation and the program by clicking in the following link.
