Delegates - why attend?

With the EU bringing in new legislation to reduce emissions and fuel prices constantly rising, engineered plastics for the automotive sector are fast becoming the future: predictions suggest that by 2020 plastics will comprise 18% of the average vehicle's weight. 

To achieve optimal fuel efficiency OEMs are going lightweight - since 2008 the average vehicle has dropped 20% - and are using more lightweight plastics and polymer-based components to achieve this.
 
Car companies have been developing new materials and technologies at a pace to meet the EU's tough C02 emission reduction targets but taking the green car to the next stage requires a decisive transition to lightweight materials, including composites and plastics.

Our aim is to bring together the decision makers in order to work towards the EU target of 95g/km for 2020.


Plastics in Automotive Lightweighting Conference 2016 will provide an opportunity to:

  • Address developments and challenges specific to the UK automotive sector 
  • Hear from OEMs about their lightweighting strategies– where can the plastics industry fit in?
  • Learn about innovations in injection moulding and thermoplastics for lightweighting
  • Listen to the latest use of composites
  • Understand scalability - what are the steps necessary for high-volume global production capability?
  • Discuss a vision of collaboration: can the automotive and plastics industries join forces to achieve shared goals?
  • Network with different elements of the supply chain to achieve your lightweighting goals
