11:00AM – Agriculture and energy: what sustainable solutions to fight climate change?
By Margot Bibes and Laurent Barrau from BAYWA-RE
Combining agricultural production and electricity production on the same plot, a utopia? Agrivoltaism is today a concrete and sustainable solution limiting the impacts of climate change on fruit and vegetable crops. With the increase in extreme episodes (heat wave, hailstorm, frost, etc.), sensitive crops are protected thanks to raised structures and bifacial panels that allow light to pass through.
The workshop led by BayWa r.e., placed under the sign of exchange and conviviality, will aim to present our proven agrivoltaism technology to you as well as the first feedback. The opportunity to ask all your questions to our experts and to discover our AgriPV model as real as life!

Event dedicated to press representatives
2:00PM – The supply chain challenges of reusable packaging
By Anaïs Ryterband from Pandobac
Packaging is an increasingly strategic subject for players in the fruit & vegetable sector. The AGEC law already imposes new obligations since it prohibits the over-packaging of Fruits & Vegetables in single-use plastic packaging for packaging weighing less than 1.5 kg. The reuse of packaging makes it possible to anticipate the next regulations which will inevitably affect packaging, under pressure from communities and companies. This conference will address the various issues and examine the advantages and disadvantages of using reusable packaging.
3:00PM – CargoBeamer an innovative technology
