Lightweight Vehicles Conference, brought to you by Plastic News Europe, is the knowledge and networking event for the automotive lightweighting industry, where leading experts come together to discuss the future of lightweight vehicles and to explore solutions to the EU's tough C0² emission reductions targets set for 2020.
The automotive industry has been tasked with the challenge of engineering plastics to reduce vehicle bodyweight and create less emissions, by developing lightweight plastics and polymer-based components. The advancing trend towards lightweight vehicles also extends to other transport sectors; fuel-efficient electric-powered trains require lighter car to reduce weight. In addition, there is also the need to consider the growing consumer need for 'greener' vehicles.
Join us at the conference to network with OEMs, Tier 1 manufacturers and plastics companies and find out the latest information on materials and technology to ensure that your business is ready, as these 'must-meet' targets loom ever closer.
