No European Green Deal without Lightweight Technology

Date: May 04, 2023
Location: Representation of the Free State of Bavaria to the European Union, B-1000 Brussels

Lightweight design is a key technology for Germany and indispensable for achieving the strategic goals of the EU. These are set in the Green Deal, the Green Deal Industrial Plan and the Critical Raw Materials Act. Last year, the Advisory Board of the BMWK’s Lightweighting Initiative expressed the wish for a European event in Brussels to raise the political profile of lightweight construction at EU level.

We are now pleased to send you the invitation for the first lightweight event in Brussels, which will take place on May 4th, 2023 from 10:00 to 16:00 in cooperation with the Representation of the Free State of Bavaria to the EU.

The venue is:

Representation of the Free State of Bavaria to the European Union
Rue Wiertz 77
B-1000 Brussels

The motto of the event, which will consist of short presentations, two panel discussions and an accompanying exhibition, is: No European Green Deal without Lightweight Technology.

Flame Retardancy for Composite Applications in the Transport Sector

From 10-11 May 2023, the AVK - Industrievereinigung Verstärkte Kunststoffe e. V. in cooperation with the FGK - Forschungsgesellschaft Kunststoffe e.V. will for the first time organise a conference on flame retardancy in Berlin.

Components made of fibre-reinforced plastics/composites, which are produced for the transport sector, often have to have specific flame retardant properties. In 18 compact lectures over one and a half days, more than 20 experts will provide information on new developments, requirements and innovations in this field. Among others, there will be presentations by industry representatives from Saertex, BÜFA, Clariant, Diehl Aviation and Airbus, but also from institutes such as the Fraunhofer Institutes and the Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing. Presentations on the topics of standardisation, raw materials, automotive or recycling are on the agenda in Berlin. Flame retardants for connectors and battery housings for electric vehicles or fire-retardant systems for rail vehicles, but also fire-retardant CFRP made from recycled CF nonwovens are just some of the presentations at the conference.

The event will be held in English.
