The EPFL Alumni Eastern Switzerland chapter invites you to a visit of AEK Pellet SA’s production site in Bahlstal (SO) on Thursday April 11th, 2019.

AEK Pellet SA was created following the hurricane named “Lothar” in the late 20th century. So many trees were uprooted that nobody knew what to do make of it. From this situation emerged the idea to recycle the trees by making wood pellets out of it, thus providing tens of Swiss homes an eco-friendly combustible.

The event is an unique opportunity to learn more about this industry and discover the prominent role it has in the local economy.

The guided tour will be followed by an aperitif with finger food.

Time: 18h15 – 19h30 for the visit
Language: conference will be in German

Registration fees are 35 CHF per person (25 CHF for contributors). It includes the conference and the aperitif with finger food. The visit alone costs 5 CHF.

Register here by March 29th and take this opportunity to meet other graduates from your chapter. Attendance is limited to 30 on a first come first served basis. Partners and friends will be added to a waiting list. Their participation will be confirmed by March 31st with priority given to contributors.
