Review of the 5th Biofuels Industry Day

26 March 2024

The 5th Biofuels Industry Day took place in Langenthal last week. We look back with pleasure on a successful and enjoyable Industry Day 2023 in the Westhalle.

The event hall was prepared on Tuesday, 14 November 2023. The vehicles were gradually brought into the hall.

On Wednesday, 15 November 2023, we welcomed numerous members, participants from across the industry, representatives of the authorities and politicians to the Westhalle of the Parkhotel Langenthal. The morning began with a political update from National Councillor and Board member Pierre-André Page. This was followed by two highly interesting presentations by Dr Philipp Furler, Synhelion, and Christian Beidl, Professor at TU Darmstadt.

The lunch break provided an opportunity for personal dialogue, discussions and getting to know each other. A good opportunity for networking.

Other exciting speakers took to the stage in the afternoon: Christian Bach from EMPA, Dr André Kirchhofer from ASTAG and Claudio Ferretti from Volvo Trucks Switzerland gave their presentations.

The concluding panel discussion was enlivened by the views of Ramon Werner, Oel-Pool AG/President of Biofuels Switzerland, Daniel Schöni from Schöni Transport AG, Jonas Nordh from Sania Switzerland and Mike Ritter from Käppeli Transport AG. The Biofuels Industry Day 2023 came to a successful conclusion with a small aperitif.

Thank you very much for your interest and your participation in our event.
