Governed by the motto “Creating tomorrow together,” over 800 decision-makers and partners of the global food and mobility industries, from 500 companies and 80 different countries, met to attend the second Bühler Networking Days in Uzwil.
The focus of the two-day event is on the question of how it will be possible in 2050 to feed a global population of almost ten billion people sustainably and healthily and how to ensure their mobility. “Climate change and the demands of our growing population are huge challenges. At the same time, we live in the best world in history. And never have we had such powerful technologies at our disposal,” says Stefan Scheiber, CEO of Bühler Group. He adds that the crucial point is that industry, research, and politics must use these new and sustainable technologies to cope with these challenges and that these various players must work together toward this goal. “Our aim is to reduce energy requirements, water consumption, and waste by 50% in our customers’ value chains,” says Scheiber. Another important point for him is a change of perception: “Industry must become part of the solution.”
Foundry-Planet took advantage of this important opportunity to interview Jonathan Abbis, Managing Director at Bühler Diecasting about topics including sustainable mobility developments, digitalization in industry, and values and visions for the future.
