Data collection and digitization and advanced intervention techniques
The hackathon is a competition for ideas that promotes innovation and cooperation to generate development via software and hardware solutions.
Sartec organises the first hackathon in Italy on precision agriculture, focused on developing inventions, digital project ideas and IoT in the field of agriculture. Our initiative brings together a range of competences and abilities to stimulate cooperation between different fields and promote innovation and development in the areas targeted.
#hackasartec2018 featured teams composed of specialists from Sartec and Techedge and undergraduate and PhD students from the Faculty of Engineering of Cagliari University, the Faculty of Agricultural Science of Sassari University and University Cattolica del Sacro Cuore. Over a period of 30 hours, the teams addressed the current challenges faced by the agricultural sector and proposed technological solutions, which were assessed by a jury composed of university teachers and professionals. The initiative was also supported by the Industrialists’ Association – Southern Sardinia Branch (Confindustria Sardegna meridionale), Boston Consulting Group and Techedge.
ERTC – Hilton Athens, Athens
ERTC gathers over 560 industry professionals from refinery operators, petrochemical plants, technology providers, regulators and government officials to discuss these topics, share market insights, project updates, best practices and case studies as well as the latest in process and technology advances.
ERTC is THE platform that technology providers use to present their latest and new innovations and technologies.
Lorenzo Sassu presented the speech “Determination of residue quality and yields from 1H NMR spectra of crude oils and chemometric for process optimization”. In the intervention, an innovative analytical method was analyzed for the analysis of Vacuum and atmospheric residues, developed by the Sartec technical staff.

Ecomondo – Quartiere fieristico, Rimini
Ecomondo is the leading Euro-Mediterranean area green and circular economy expo. An international event with an innovative format that brings together all sectors of the circular economy in a single platform: from material and energy recovery to sustainable development.
Running at the same time as Ecomondo is Key Energy, the expo of “energy for the climate”, energy-efficiency solutions and applications and renewable energy.
In September, Sartec participated in RemTech Expo 2017 at Ferrara, one of the leading events on site remediation.
On the invitation of RemTech’s organisers, Sartec reported on a complex and extensive environmental remediation project, entitled “Remediation of hydrocarbon polluted soil in a refinery – An innovative systemic treatment train implemented in phases”, presented by Manolo Mulana and Virginia Loddo.
The presentation – in the session entitled “Reclamation technologies for contaminated soils” (coordinated by Federico Vagliasindi, Mariarosaria Boni and Carlo Collivignarelli) – was met with great interest by the attending industry operators, who asked the speakers many questions.
Being at RemTech has allowed us to build, expand and strengthen our network of contacts with sector operators.
