13th Auto Recycling Conference in HohenrodaOn the 1st and 2nd October 2019 the car dismantler conference, otherwise known as the AVT conference took place for the 13th time in Hessian Hohenroda, Germany. 

In addition to the numerous car recyclers, this year again the representatives of the ELV departments of car manufacturers, certifiers and representatives of the authorities were also present.

Very noticeable was the increased interest in e-mobility and the associated changes for dismantlers.
