20th International Automobile Recycling Congress IARC 2021

Event Date: 
Wednesday, 23 June, 2021 to Friday, 25 June, 2021

This year is set to be a critical for the automotive recycling business for three main reasons.

First, the complete recast of the EU End-of-Life Vehicles Directive which might have a serious impact on car & parts manufacturers and on the whole car dismantling & recycling industry, and its possible extension to other mobility sectors such as motorbikes, trucks & buses.

Second, the EU plans to ban the export of certain recycled materials as part of the EU Green Deal and Circular Economy Package. This might also have a huge impact on the global sustainable recycling industry.

Third, the accelerating uptake of electro-mobility will have an impact on the recycling trade as pressure builds for necessary investments in new dismantling & shredding techniques and for education of the increasing numbers of actors handling these new technologies.
