11th VERT Forum postponed to March 25th 2021

at EMPA-Academy, CH-8600-Duebendorf, Ueberlandstrasse 129, 9:00 to 18:00, opening and registration 8:00

Dear Colleague,

because of the worldwide continuing threat by the COVID-19 pandemic the VERT Board made the decision in alignment with EMPA to postpone the VERT Forum from September this year to Thursday March 25th 2021.

Switzerland seems to be quite safe by now but nobody can predict what will happen after the vacation weeks which are starting now. The VERT Forum is an international meeting and we are expecting many guests and speakers from other countries which makes predictions even more difficult and since we feel responsible for your safety and health during this event we had to come to this decision. The VERT Forum is also known for communication and networking and we therefore resisted on the temptation to offer a digital meeting.

We basically want to keep the main items on the agenda as announced but we would like to also use this Forum as a virus filtration event to make public that our industry can support the society with best available technology to clean the breathing air not only from soot particles.

Our sincere apologies to coming again to you with such bad news, but looking forward optimistically to another fascinating event at the forefront of new BAT-emission control technologies.

with best regards on behalf of the organizing committee

Contribute to the European Green Deal-Just Transition Fund

EFCA has been requested to be more active towards the Commission’s legislative proposals open for adoption. Our President have screened some proposals of the EC and think that we all as EFCA confederated members should contribute primarily to the European Green Deal-Just Transition Fund, which is open for adoption and being consulted from 15 January 2020 till 12 March 2020. In short this is a complex proposal for regional policy and related regulation including budgetary implications provided interested countries take active part in its implementation. You will find the full text of the proposal „European Green Deal – Just Transition Fund” directly on: https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/better-regulation/initiatives/com-2020-22_en
