How will disruption and transformation impact you? Build powerful new alliances at Cleantech Forum Europe in Luxembourg on 18-20 May.
Since 2002, we’ve brought together global investors, innovators, corporates and change makers looking for answers to the biggest question: who will lead the transformation we’re all waiting for?
We’ll let our community tell you what makes Cleantech Forum Europe invaluable.
“Cleantech Forum Europe is a conference where you exchange in an interactive way on the latest topics with all different kinds of stakeholders relevant to our ecological and environmental future. It is a unique opportunity you can only get there.”
-Sandra Trittin, Co-Founder and Head of Business Development & Marketing, tiko Energy Solutions
“For me, the Cleantech Forum remains a unique opportunity to meet with the most significant and active investors in clean energy and environmental technologies in Europe, partake in conversations that inform new investment directions and create opportunities to work with peers in supporting new companies together. the Forum’s uniqueness resides in its ability to bring together the whole industry for a couple of days and create the opportunities for co-investment in portfolio companies”
-Julien Mialaret, Operating Partner, Idinvest Partners
“I was able to meet with several very interesting people, with good prospects of future business!”
-Antoine Hubert, CEO, Ynsect
You’ll interact with the people, companies and technologies building a decarbonized and resource efficient future.
What to Expect
A wide range of sessions means you can choose the topics and formats that interest you most. Pursue your area or expertise or widen your horizons. Our agenda will cover all six of our industrial sectors.
Our rapidly evolving agenda for the Luxembourg Forum is built around three tracks:
Financing the Transition – how will we balance innovation and investment?
The number of large corporates pledging to pursue carbon neutrality is multiplying. This will favour early-stage companies. Will they lead larger organizations on their journey to carbon neutrality?
Circularity – can we stop the make, use and dispose model?
By breaking away from the consumption of limited resources, circularity across all sectors will develop new industry openings. What is the scope and scale of the opportunities?
Digitization – is data the key to a cleaner future?
Edge devices, artificial intelligence and data platforms provide new tools to collect and analyze data for informed investment and service improvements. But does data have limits and where are its most valuable applications?

Sofie AllertCEO, Swedish Algae Factory Speaker bio
Sofie Allert is the co-founder and CEO of Swedish Algae Factory. She has a Bachelor degree in Biotechnology and a Master’s degree in Entrepreneurship and Business design from Chalmers University of Technology. Swedish Algae Factory was founded because of her passion for making use of a natural resource that can create a lot of sustainable value for society, algae. Swedish Algae Factory have developed a circular economic business model around a group of algae called diatoms.
The organic biomass of diatoms is surrounded by a nanoporous silica shell. This silica shell has naturally exceptional light-altering and absorbent properties that are useful in several industries, where the material can replace harmful and/or less efficient chemical substances. These unique properties can e.g. be used for efficiency enhancement of solar panels, improvement of battery capacity, UV light protection in sunscreens and paint and absorption and moisturizing in skincare products. Swedish Algae Factory are today operating an algae cultivation facility in Kungshamn, Sweden, where algae is cultivated whilst absorbing the nutrients nitrogen and phosphorus in wastewater released from a land-based fish farm. The nutrients are trapped in the organic biomass of the algae. This organic biomass is a by-product after extraction of the algae shells and can e.g. be utilized to produce more sustainable feed or fertilizers.

Athan FoxChief Technology & Innovation Officer, Aurelius Environmental Speaker bio
Imagine a world without waste. Our aim is to revolutionise recycling; our vision is a web of industries where one stream’s waste is another stream’s in-feed: bridging linear and wasteful processes to create a circular, energy-efficient, non-polluting, zero-waste economy.
We are working on a range of projects across the Technology Readiness scale. These projects include the recycling of lead-acid batteries, lithium-ion batteries, spent catalysts (from the petrochemicals industry), spent tyres and municipal waste. Our objective is to convert waste products into raw materials and reagents capable of treating / recycling other waste products. This synergy will help us create an Eco City where nothing but waste enters and nothing but products leave.
Our flagship technology is a green process for recycling lead-acid battery paste. We reduce the carbon footprint by 80-89%; eliminate noxious gases (e.g. sulphur dioxide and nitrogen dioxide) at no extra cost; we cut energy by more than 7,000 mWh per 10,000 tonnes of battery scrap throughput; we reduce slag by at least 90%; and we save more than $500,000 per 10,000 tonnes throughput. Batteries produced from our recycled lead oxide exhibit higher energy density and improved cycling compared to current batteries on the market.

From 2010 until 2015, the company expanded significantly, providing services to the growing UK renewables industry. Political changes, which saw big cuts made to subsidies in this area, caused a slow-down in the renewables industry and forced a major change in strategy at Digital Engineering.
From 2016, Digital Engineering has focused on supplying services to the wider energy industry. It quickly became clear that this change was actually very positive for the business as it opened a larger, more lucrative market for the company’s services. In the past 3 years the business has won contracts with major multinationals such as Bloomberg and National Grid and is currently working in Europe, America and Australia.
At work, Rob enjoys doing things differently and is constantly looking to solve problems in new and creative ways. He is passionate about growing his business and is excited to take it to the next level.
