Published on 04 February 2020

The world's largest car recycling congress – the IARC – takes place in Geneva this year from 11-13 March. This promises to be an exceptional edition, since it is the anniversary of the congress and the Geneva Motor Show takes place just around the corner.

Over 250 important players in the car recycling industry meet in Geneva from 11-13 March. During those days, the Swiss city will host the 20th edition of the IARC; the not-to-be-missed annual meeting of car recyclers, car manufacturers and politicians.

Keynote speakers

The anniversary edition promises to be a memorable event, since it coincides with the 90th edition of the Geneva Motor Show. One of the key speakers of the event is nobody less than Olivier Rihs, the director of the Geneva International Motor Show. Rihs will talk about the challenges he sees in the automotive industry in 2020. Other keynote speakers include Murat Bayram of European Metal Recycling Gmbh, professor Kerstin Kuchta of the Hamburg University of Technology and Michel B. Monteil of the Swiss Federal Office for the Environment (FOEN).

Subjects

The two-day congress programme - the third day is reserved for company visits - will cover, among other subjects, new automotive technologies and their influence on recycling, the advantages of the circular economy for car manufacturers and recyclers and the sustainability benefits of automotive recycling. Moreover, a number of countries (Ireland, Norway) show how they have arranged car recycling, and policy makers report the latest news surrounding the most important laws and regulations (ELV Directive).

Interesting programme

Other subjects include the safety aspects surrounding the collection and recycling of electric vehicles, the recycling of new materials in the cars of the future and innovations in the area of dismantling, sorting and shredding end-of-life vehicles.
