My working day is usually starting before 5 AM, I dress without putting the light on, take my electric unicycle, and ride to work, where the morning hygiene would be done, not to wake those who still sleep.

Every day I watch the sky and from time to time I took a snapshot to share with others the beauty of the morning.

Today is Saturday, one of two days when I usually sleep longer, if no meeting in Asia.

One of the core principles of the work which we do is to UTILIZE EXISTING

It sounds to many strange because they are thought that BUY NEW is better


With the NEW seems to be connected BETTER

We have lost on our way the MEANINGFULNESS of our life and work, hunting for MORE.

Realizing this I am happy that more and more of us open our eyes and not only that, WE STEP OUT OF THE STREAM directed by others.

But there is one important aspect to realize and recognize


Just the way how it is created is different

INDUSTRY 5.0 utilizes ON-THE-GROUND-MINES which does not request the mining of new materials and digging inside the planet leaving scarfs that will need centuries and millenniums to recover.

One of the INDUSTRY 5.0 HEROES translating the INDUSTRY 5.0 KEYNOTE into Italian, just asked me to explain to her the meaning of the name “OTGM” Let me share my words with you.


OTGM represents what we have, but frequently do not see or ignore its existence taken it for granted, we do not value it and with no hesitation call it WASTE.

All of the national INDUSTRY 5.0 AMBASSADORS, HEROES so as supporters and clients realized already that this waste is a system failure and they use the 6R methodology

We all have different voices

We alle have different stories

We are the ON-THE-GROUND-MINES everyone different, every one special and it is on us to understand the value, to share, to BE.

No matter if we suffer, If we are blind if we get just 2% to survive

ON-THE-GROUND-MINES are products that stay in the warehouses after the end of a project. OTGM is new unpacked food found behind the supermarket store because new goods came in. OTGM are empty buildings, factories, and flats. OTGM are people willing to work and deliver results is not permitted to enter the market because of …

There are many ON-THE-GROUND-MINES representing EXISTING RESOURCES, but is contrary to the habits, the resources are here not to be sold in the first instance, but to be utilized and shared instead and there is a big difference between these two.

INDUSTRY 5.0 and INDUSTRIAL UPCYCLING teach how to combine two or more existing items or OTGM to create a third unexpected product or solution. Creating NEW from OLD has a big share of uniqueness because frequently every single piece and solution is unique.

Nature that serves as a role model for INDUSTRY 5.0 does the same for millions of years and it works, so it is time to take advantage that we are part of nature and merge bot ecosystems into one.

If any more questions about the ON-THE-GROUND-MINES or any other topic related to INDUSTRY 5.0 or the future, just ask me, I would be happy to help

Have a nice day free of waste and wasting in all its forms and stay safe
