Eni becomes the official “Platinum Sponsor” of the Italian Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai
(PRESS RELEASE) SAN DONATO MILANESE, 19-Apr-2021 — /EuropaWire/ — Italian multinational oil and gas company Eni announces that it has signed partnership with the Italian Commissioner’s Office for the Expo 2020 in Dubai as “Platinum Sponsor” of the Italian Pavilion, where Eni will illustrate its innovation-led decarbonisation strategy applied to the whole energy supply chain.
The company will take part in the Italian Pavilion with a project installation created by the innovation and design studio CRA-Carlo Ratti Associati and Italo Rota, that recreates artistically a microalgae cultivation by using a cascade of technological liana vines, up to 20 meters long. Through each of the LED lit lianas flow the microalgae: the see-through circuit therefore becomes a spectacular exhibition of microalgae biologic process and growth in the photobioreactor where, feeding on CO2, these unicellular organisms produce high-value compounds and more.
Eni’s commitment towards energy transition takes shape by focusing on technological innovation to find new solutions for the lowest carbon impact in energy production. Thanks to the collaboration with over 70 Universities and Research Centres globally, Eni is developing new technologies for decarbonisation, renewable energies and circular economy, all of which will be illustrated in the Eni area at Expo 2020, with a dedicated video schedule and with the company participation in events and talks throughout the whole exhibition semester.
