Car recycling experts to gather at IARC event

Global – What is the economic impact of the reduced availability of car bodies to shredder companies? And how do car manufacturers and the industry close the recycling loop? These and other topics will be highlighted at the 14th International Automobile Recycling Congress (IARC 2014) to be held on March 19-21 at the Dolce la Hulpe Brussels hotel in the Belgian capital.

Representatives from industry, the authorities and academia will present information on latest developments and challenges relating to the end-of-life vehicles (ELVs) business. The congress will bring together the various links in the recycling chain such as car manufacturers, metals and plastics scrap traders, recyclers, shredder operators and policy-makers.

A large exhibition area will be integrated into the conference facilities. In addition, participants will have the opportunity to take a test drive in a BMW i3 electric car – a quarter of whose interior is made of recycled material or renewable resources, according to the German auto giant.

Congress organisers will be offering plant tours to ARN in the Netherlands, as well as to Groupe Comet and Toyota Motor Manufacturing France.
