The International Automobile Recycling Congress (IARC) 2020 and the Geneva International Motor Show (GIMS) are taking place at the same time in Geneva this year, from 11-13 March 2020. As a bonus, when visitors register for the IARC 2020, admission to the Motor Show is included. That way visitors optimise their travel time and take in two unmissable automotive trade shows.
IARC is the international platform for discussing the latest developments and challenges in automobile recycling, bringing together more than 250 decision-makers in the ELV recycling chain such as car manufacturers, metal and plastic scrap traders, recyclers, shredder operators, policy makers and many more.
Building on the success of last year’s event, the organisers ICM want to make this year’s IARC program better than ever. Visitors can expect an update on new automotive technologies and their impact on recycling; discussions on the benefits of the circular economy for car manufacturers and recyclers; reuse & recycling of electrical and electronic components of ELVs; how to recycle new materials used in future cars including the safe recycling of automotive lithium-ion batteries and many other key issues.
This year key automotive partner Toyota will display the new C-HR Hybrid and Tesla will be offering test drives.
The lectures are given by industry experts and two corporate tours are being offered, to Thévenaz-Leduc in Ecublens-Lausanne and MTB Recycling in Trept, France. The conference will be accompanied by a trade exhibition and the IARC will also provide plenty of networking opportunities. There is a networking dinner held on the first evening of the conference.
More information about the IARC 2020 including the program and registration is available on the ICM website.
