“We feel the need to discuss these topics not only with experts, but also to present them to business partners and the general public. That’s why we came up with this talkshow. We are also actively working on finding and implementing solutions to many of the issues discussed. For example, we are testing hydrogen manufacturing from sustainable sources or the process of recycling plastic by pyrolysis,” said Jakub Kosmowski, Marketing Director at Unipetrol Group.
The goal of this initiative is to inform about and explore areas which are increasingly more important in today’s world. Topics include circular economy, alternative fuels, recycling as well as responsible manufacturing, social responsibility of individuals and corporations and other related areas. The series of videos should function as an educational tool for the public and a source of information for businesses wishing to implement more sustainable production and business models.
“We want the series to function as a platform for meaningful discussion and sharing thoughts and ideas on the concept of sustainability. Guests are selected to represent a wide spectrum of opinions and perspectives from a line of experts, professionals and visionaries,” says Dr. Michael G. S. Londesborough B.Sc Hons Ph.D, Researcher at the Institute of Inorganic Chemistry at the Czech Academy of Science and series moderator.
The first videos from this pilot project can now be viewed on Unipetrol’s social media pages such as Youtube, LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter or on the web at www.fuellinginnovations.com
. Personalities who have already shared their opinions include Josef Jančář (Brno Univeristy of Technology, expert on advanced polymer systems), Vojtěch Vosecký (nonprofit organization INCIEN, transitioning from a linear to a circular economy), Lukáš Sedláček (ELAI, motivating society to higher aims) or Aleš Doucek (Czech Hydrogen Technology Platform, hydrogen as a fuel of the future). Many guests and the moderator of “Let’s talk about it” will also take part in Innovation Week Czech Republic 2019, of which Unipetrol is the general partner.
Unipetrol Group, the largest petrochemical producer in Czech Republic, considers the creation and support of these projects focused on sustainable models of production and consumption to be a part of its social responsibility. Unipetrol is promoting Let’s Talk about It on social media and the web at www.fuellinginnovations.com
. In the future, Unipetrol plans to widen project reach to additional media platforms.
