ROUNDTABLE: No company can be circular alone! How to connect vendors and customers to share, process and verify material quality and sustainability data across global supply chains?

Roundtable discussion: Capacity per room = 10

With the race to net zero, industrial manufacturers face a high impact on carbon emissions related to upstream material supplies. Today, almost none of this data is computable. Responsible sourcing must be based on accurate, primary and reliable information. This is where Certificates of Analysis (EN10204) are playing a key role. New technologies allow to replace paper based documents with machine readable certificates that can contain both a product’s quality but also verifiable claims of a products sustainability and CO2 footprint. This is how companies from automotive, engineering, construction and packaging need to decarbonize their upstream supply chain, automate the sustainability reporting for their products and accelerate the transition to green lead markets.

Stefan Grüll

CEO and Co-Founder

S1Seven GmbH

Digital entrepreneur with many years of leadership experience in the steel and metal industry.

After almost two decades in various positions at one of the leading steel and metal distribution companies in Germany and abroad, I am now working at the intersection of digitalization and industry to drive innovative solutions. S1Seven GmbH was founded in 2019 and is a software platform provider, focusing on data trustworthy solutions enabling Digital Quality Certificates.

S1Seven GmbH provides a decentralized software platform for Digital Quality Certificates-as-a-service for steel, metal, and plastics. This is how companies in aerospace, automotive,rail tech, construction, and otherindustries, share machine-readable data instead of paper-based documents to use for smart manufacturing, to account for sustainability attributes, orto automate the verification of a material and process provenance. Ourtechnology is scalable, secure, and certified.

Our clients are in all stages of the supply chain – from the raw material producers to the processor and up to OEMs and notified bodies. I also act as a member of the board of the Austrian Steel Construction Association, as well as an advisor to the board of König Holding AG, Alukönigstahl Group.

ROUNDTABLE: What are Digital Product Passports (DPP), who needs them, what are they intended to do, and how can we implement them?

Roundtable discussion. Capacity per room = 10

Soon the European Commission will introduce “digital product passport” legislation that will require supply chain actors to share information about the lifecycle impacts and composition of goods that are sold on the European market. The aim is to help boost Circular Economy strategies such as recovery, reuse, remanufacturing, and recycling. However, identifying and sharing the information across the supply chain requires a lot of work and it is still largely unknown what data will be required, in what format and how data is to be shared. In addition, when it comes to intellectual property, data privacy, and confidentiality, we need to make sure that the data is shared with the highest security and in a decentralised way.

Join this session to learn more about how digital product passports will affect your business and understand what you can do now to minimise risks and become a front runner.

ROUNDTABLE: The challenges ahead of CRMs in a green economy and a reflection on the current supply crisis for some materials such as magnesium

Roundtable discussion: Capacity = 10 attendees.

The primary magnesium and refining industry are facing various challenges together with other high energy consuming industries on their way to a reduced and finally carbon free existence. A recent supply crisis and interruption on the global magnesium market has also added a geo-political dimension. New and alternative transport applications have shifted the importance of light weighing in general, and magnesium as the lightest structural metal has gained advantages (in e.g.: electrical vehicles), but also found some challenges (e.g.: in the efficiency of the powertrain). The lecture will provide a global view on the magnesium supply situation, and its pathway to a lower carbon production landscape, and will also display some case studies of Magnesium in various vehicle applications.

On 31 January and 1 February 2022, the French Presidency of the Council held a meeting of the EU ministers responsible for industry and the internal market to discuss strengthening European strategic autonomy. The Commission highlighted the actions taken since summer 2020 regarding raw materials, including the publication of an Action Plan on Raw Materials and the establishment of ERMA. Moreover, the Commission recently launched a high-level working group on magnesium, with the goal of ensuring 15% of the European production takes place in Europe by 2030.

Speaker

Dr Martin Tauber

European Representative, International Magnesium Association and President

Critical Raw Material Alliance (CRM-A)

Martin Tauber has over 25 year’s experience in different raw material related industries, whereas Magnesium has been the most significant one, with executive positions at leading industry players like Hydro Magnesium and Magontec.

In, 2009, he founded FAURIS Management, a consulting company which provides services to the Magnesium industry on a global base. Martin is also European Representative and former Chairman of the European Committee of the International Magnesium Association (IMA) and President of the Critical Raw Material Alliance (CRM-A). Martin is a registered expert of the European Commission.

ROUNDTABLE: What role will on-site solar power play for the future industrial manufacturing site?

Roundtable discussion. Capacity per room = 10 pax

Solar power plays a key role in the European energy transition. In order to meet the 1,5 degree target, Europe needs to achieve at least 45% renewable energy generation by 2030. On-site solar could stand for more than half of the required build out of solar power - being one of the fastest and most resource-efficient ways to reach the target.


At the same time, buyers find it challenging. Will the installation interfere with production at site? Is the roof condition good enough? What are the applicable laws and regulations? As a result, on-site solar is largely an untapped resource among industrial manufacturers.


Join us in a roundtable discussion focusing on how industrial manufacturers can use on-site solar as a key part of their renewable energy procurement and discuss how to overcome barriers and de-risk projects, so that we can unleash the full potential of on-site solar in Europe.
