Oil&nonOil: conferences focusing on new technologies and new infrastructures on the second day
The second day of conferences – Thursday 25 November – will see two proposals by Oil&nonOil: “The role of new technologies to safeguard fuels” and “The future of logistics and the new global challenges”
The first convention scheduled in the morning (9.30-12.30) will look into the near future, where the mobility of people and goods will be impacted by the spread of the 5G network of fifth generation mobile telephony. The digital transition is proceeding alongside the energy transition to offer new tools to combat illegality and control environmental impact. The meeting will especially focus on technological solutions to combat illegal trade in fuels which, according to some estimates, involves three billion litres per year (10% of total) worth between two and four billion euros. Blockchain technology will also play an important role, as field trials seem to promise, by offering a new way for recording data, including data concerning fuels.
In keeping with tradition, representatives of industry associations and institutions have been invited to discuss the issue. Inasmuch, speakers include Giuseppe Devito (Assocostieri), Eugenio Sbariggia (Unione energie per la mobilità), Bonaventura Sorrentino (Law and tax firm Sorrentino Pasca Toma), Marco Dreosto (Environment, Public Health and Food Safety Committee of the European Parliament), Natalino Mori (Transadriatic) and William Nonnis (Ministry of Defence and Enea), with Riccardo Pilat (Pilat & Partners) as moderator.
The afternoon (15:00-18:00) will be the turn for the conference dedicated to logistics. The event was organized in the conviction that infrastructures will be crucial for Italy’s recovery and restart and that infrastructural development needs open and far-reaching approach, involving public and private subjects and breaking down the barriers, including bureaucratic ones, which have held back growth in the past. Many sectors are involved, from engineering to energy. From sea to land and air, from physical to digital infrastructure – the challenges are enormous but so are the opportunities.
Speakers representing associations include Diana Fabrizi (Associazione logistica dell’intermodalità sostenibile), Dario Sorìa (Assocostieri), Natalino Mori (Federazione autotrasportatori italiani), Silvia Migliorini (Federchimica-Assogasliquidi) and Franco Del Manso (Unione energie per la mobilità). Parliament, regional administrations and public entities will be represented by Zeno D’Agostino (Eastern Adriatic Sea Port Authority), Luciano D’Alfonso (Senate Finance and Treasury Commission), Guido Castelli (Marches Region) and Guido Germano Pettarin (Parliament Budget, Treasury and Planning Commission).
