Essential information for end of life vehicle dismantling, depollution and recycling


‘Vehicle Recycling – Dismantling the Future’ conference coming soon

Vehicle Recycling - Dismantling The Future conference 2019

ATF Professional’s conference focuses on the future of vehicle recycling and with an engaging lineup of industry expert speakers, this one day event is sure to gain the interest of all those involved in vehicle recycling. 

We kick start the day at 9 am for registration at the impressive Advanced Propulsion Centre in Warwick University on 27th November 2019 and so far speakers include representatives from Toyota, SYNETIQ, AXA, IAEA, WMG, Salvage Wire, RS Bruce, Cawleys and AIC. 

With so many changes occuring in vehicle recycling, ATF Professional took the opportunity to bring together experts to deliver their knowledge of what we as an industry need to be aware of in the coming years to enable us to continue to prosper and grow within our businesses. 

The conference delves into the safety of EV and EV battery recycling, how working together can create a better understanding between assessors and vehicle recyclers and the views of an insurer on the pros and cons of green parts. Other aspects of the day focus on a manufacturer’s perspective in relation to its collaboration with ATFs and viewpoints concerning the future of green parts use and the process of recycling EVs and their batteries from dismantlers themselves. 

There will be ample time for networking with others in the industry, the opportunity to voice your views and to gain an understanding of how future vehicle recycling could affect your business. 

Everybody with an interest in vehicle recycling is welcome to attend and places can be booked through our conference webpage where you can also find more details about the speakers and their presentations.

We also have exhibition space and sponsorship opportunities available so if you would like to know more, please contact us on 01432 055099 or email
