We look forward to welcoming a fantastic lineup of expert speakers from the UK and globally, and we are grateful to them to take the time out to present at our event, particularly those who are travelling from as far afield as the USA. This one-day event is sure to gain the interest of all vehicle recycling industry stakeholders.

Like our last live conference, this year’s will be held at the Advanced Propulsion Centre in Warwick University on the 9th of June 2022, with registration starting at 9 am. So far, speakers include representatives from ARA, BMRA, e2e, Ezi-Methods, Lithiumionsafety Ltd, SYNETIQ and Volvo Cars, with more to be confirmed shortly.

The conference, entitled ‘Vehicle Recycling – never ending – always evolving’, will focus on the evolution of vehicle recycling. After an unprecedented number of years where countries seem to have come to a halt, the vehicle recycling industry has never stopped. This event is geared up for those wanting to know where the industry is now and where is it going. 

As well as a great lineup of speakers, there will be plenty of time to network with the other stakeholders, voice your opinion, and gain further knowledge and understanding of the evolution of ELV recycling.

Haydn Davies, Editor of ATF Professional and Auto Recycling World, said:

So we are now delighted to announce that our next conference will be this June. 

We are so much looking forward to seeing everyone at the APC. We have a great lineup of speakers and will be adding a couple more before the end of the month. The vehicle recycling industry is at an exciting place, and this will be a great day and chance to focus on its current situation and where it may change and grow in the future.”
