Is your body ready for the 2020 EU emissions target? 

Plastics News Europe Lightweight Vehicles conference will be held in Berlin at Palace Hotel and will bring together OEMs, Tier 1 manufacturers and plastics companies.

Join us and make sure you are part of the discussion as the industry comes together to discuss the future of lightweighting.

For the automotive industry, engineered plastics are fast becoming the future. While new laws are being created to reduce emissions and fuel prices are rising, predictions suggest that by 2020 plastics will comprise 18 percent of the average vehicle's weight.  To achieve optimal fuel efficiency OEMs are going lightweight - since 2008 the average vehicle has dropped 20 percent - and are using more lightweight plastics and polymer-based components to achieve this. Meanwhile, the new fuel-efficiency trend of electric power trains results in heavier cars that in turn need lighter materials to reduce weight.

Car companies have achieved much in making their vehicles more fuel-efficient and generating lower emissions. But taking the green car to the next stage requires a major switch to lightweight materials, including composites and plastics. We want to bring together the decision makers and work towards the EU target of 95g/km for  2020
