How climate activism sneaked into our daily (professional) lives…
and is here to stay !

by Kurt Vandeputte, Sr Vice President Battery Recycling Solutions at Umicore

What half a century ago in the Western world was still classified as environmental fundamentalism or dooms thinking has entered into mainstream societal trends nowadays. The awareness that uncontrolled chasing of personal welfare through innovation, abundantly available and cheap energy, ever faster information sharing, extreme globalization,… has hit its limits. Smart use of information, innovation and available energy is the basis for the current digital and energy transition. This approach has entered all our private and professional lives, moreover global geopolitical tension and the Covid health crisis have even accelerated the impact on all of us.

During his keynote, Kurt Vandeputte illustrates how Umicore applies these trends and principles at the smart batteries factory.

The industrial landscape is currently right in the middle of the Fourth Industrial Revolution with technologies such as the industrial internet of things (IIoT), big data, predictive analytics, machine learning and more being implemented at an ever-increasing pace. The combination of IIoT and predictive analytics offers unseen possibilities for operations, maintenance and asset reliability with more diverse and affordable solutions to monitor and increase asset performance (equipment uptime, energy consumption, quality output, etc.).

However, practice shows that in order to really cope with the challenges of the 21st century, assets need to interact harmoniously with people. By developing human-centred, innovative technologies, Industry 5.0 can not only support and empower workers, but also enhance the resilience of industry and make it more sustainable. That’s why the European Union has placed the evolution towards Industry 5.0 high on its agenda, and so have we!


"At the Asset Performance conference you will learn how to achieve higher equipment reliability and cost performance, while improving resilience and sustainability, by focussing on digital transformation and human-centric improvements to operations, maintenance and asset management."

Wim Vancauwenberghe, Asset Performance Conference Director
