Probat introduces hydrogen-powered roaster at Connecting Markets 2022
Probat presented its new hydrogen-powered P05 shop roaster for the first time at the Connecting Markets symposium, which took place at the new production facility at its German headquarters from 21 to 22 September.
Throughout the two-day convention, impassioned speeches by highly regarded voices of the coffee industry such as James Hoffmann, Vern Long, Darrin Daniel, Cristina Madriñán, Stephen Leighton, and Anne Cooper were accompanied by captivating panel discussions centring on the megatrends of digitalisation and sustainability and in which way they interact.
“I feel honoured that nearly all of you went on that very long trip to this small town on the river Rhine to share industry insights, to inspire and be inspired. Emmerich is certainly no metropolis. During these two days, once again our guests have turned it into the think tank of the coffee world,” says Probat CEO and President Wim Abbing.
Carl Cervone from Enveritas and Raphael Studer from Algrano discussed new approaches to sustainability assurance and how power dynamics in the coffee supply chain can be balanced through smart technologies.
Anders Nordquist from Arvid Nordquist and Johan Hintze from Kafeko Nordic used their own business models to explain how environmental investment and governance have propelled the Nordic countries to the top of sustainability rankings.
Connecting Markets also provided a stage for disruptive approaches such as the idea of beanless coffee, explained by Andy Kleitsch from Atomo, David Klingen from Northern Wonder, and Heiko Rischer from VTT.
During the Experience Sessions, the supporting program of the symposium, Probat specialists presented the roasting machine manufacturer’s latest ground-breaking solutions for smart and sustainable process optimisation.
According to Probat, visitors were able to see for themselves that coffee roasted with hydrogen, which was served throughout the whole event, tastes just like coffee traditionally roasted with gas or electricity.
