Spotlight Areas at IFAT Munich

In-depth insights: material flows in the cycle, innovation projects and the latest technologies. Our Spotlight Areas offer valuable and exciting insights into current topics such as battery recycling, plastics recycling, digitalization in water management, and hydrogen.

Circularity for e-mobility (BDE)

Titled "Circularity for E-Mobility", we will present best-practice examples of selected material flows relating to the mobility of the future together with companies from the automotive, recycling, metal and plastics industries. From the dismantling of end-of-life vehicles to recycling and the reuse of recovered raw materials in production, right through to the new car, we want to show that it is already possible to close the loops for a large number of materials today and also take a special look at developments in the field of e-mobility and the associated requirements for a sustainable circular economy.
