March 4th-5th | Amsterdam
Join us at the 2020 European FOG Summit
Last year we launched the very first European Fats, Oils and Grease Summit. Our goal was to change the way people think about FOG.
We believe the only way to achieve this is through continuous collaboration and the sharing of ideas. That’s why we’re ready to do it all again and bring more of the world’s innovators and experts to Amsterdam in March 2020.
A chance to talk
“Keep the conversations moving” was the message from one of our expert presenters at our 2019 European FOG Summit (Andrew Bird, Futurologies). Our 2020 summit will be the perfect place to do just that. Experts and innovators from around the globe can discuss and debate, and listen to what their peers have learnt in the past year. We look forward to welcoming another diverse mix of experts from the worlds of education, hospitality, utilities, grease management, sustainability, customer engagement, and more.
Hear and share ideas
There were some great ideas discussed at 2019, such as “setting up a co-ordinated group to look exclusively at FOG, align consistent messages and share the best practices that are happening all over the world”. Or “making FOG training compulsory for all kitchen staff”. Those at our next event will be able to hear any updates and progress, hear new ideas and, of course, share their own inspiring brainwaves.
Stories from the 2019 summit
We heard inspiring case studies from all over the world, including:
We’re always looking for new ways to tackle FOG from the latest technology to stop FOG reaching the sewers in the first place, to innovative methods for recovery and reuse and new ways to keep customers informed and engaged. We can’t wait to hear about the unique ways in which speakers all over the world are fighting FOG and changing the way we work.
At the 2019 summit, lecturer Tom Curran, from University College Dublin, discussed some fascinating research which is providing in-depth analysis of the most significant challenges in FOG management. Tom stressed the need to see closer collaboration between academia and industry, and that is what our 2020 summit is all about, providing the platform to share ideas and learn together.
