SIM 2018: 2018 was a record year for the fair SIM – and ROSTA AG was a part of it!

2018 was with 343 exhibitors, 3500 visitors and an outdoor fair with 47 machines a record year for this fair. Among these 47 machines Ammann, RM and Gipo also exhibited machines with clearly visible ROSTA elements. ROSTA AG was not only present at the outdoor exhibition, but also in the hall. In addition to our own booth, other exhibitors or our very active partner Michaud-Chailly had placed ROSTA elements.

We were able to make some new contacts and had a lot of interesting conversations. In addition to most visitors coming from France, we also had visitors from Algeria, Ghana, Morocco, Italy and other countries.

We are already looking forward to the next SIM, which will take place from October 2–4, 2019 in Montpellier.

IARC 2019: High attendance rate and fruitful discussions make congress a success

This year’s International Automobile Recycling Congress (IARC) ended on a successful note last week with a mixture of satisfied participants, interesting presentations and lively discussions. During the two-day event, some 220 experts from 24 countries came together to discuss the latest trends in the world of automobile recycling, making the IARC the only trade congress worldwide exclusively dedicated to this subject.

Quite a number of topics were up for discussion this year, as no other industrial sector is currently undergoing as many radical changes as the automotive industry. The pressure to cut carbon emissions is driving the development of lightweight design and electric mobility, but posing major challenges for the recycling industry, particularly when it comes to finding ways to recycle new types of composite materials. However, opportunities are also emerging from this development, as the overarching aim of reducing carbon emissions is also increasingly shining a spotlight on the recycling industry.

In his keynote speech on "Mobility’s Circular Economy Potential", Patrick Schaufuss from McKinsey & Company, Inc. emphasised just how great the recycling industry’s potential is. His speech also provided the basis for the subsequent panel discussion titled "Opportunities of the Circular Economy". The McKinsey consultant appealed to the automotive industry and other players to give greater consideration to designs that are suitable for the circular economy right from the outset.

Fittingly, Jean-Denis Curt presented the Renault automotive group’s circular ecosystem and the closed recycling loops it has introduced. Niklas Kilberg from the Volvo Car Corporation spoke about the measures the Swedish car company has taken to promote sustainability and also presented Volvo’s strategy for handling plastics.

Further lectures were held on the key topic of electric mobility and the challenges it poses. For example, Dirk Spiers from the US company Spiers New Technologies presented the "Life Cycle Management of xEV Batteries in Practice". Charles Stuyck also held a talk on the importance of recycling to support the growth of EVs.  In the same vein, Johann Prammer presented technology trends for processes and materials in the steel industry between now and 2050.

Another topic of focus at this year’s IARC was the latest technological developments in sorting and classifying scrap metal. Lorenzo Bacchetti from the Italian company Danieli Centro Cranes introduced the automatic scrap yard, where scrap is classified with the help of artificial intelligence. The technical lectures were accompanied by country reports from Argentina, Germany and India, which pointed out the challenges that individual countries are facing in the field of automobile recycling. Finally, Artemis Hatzi-Hull from the European Commission presented the current state of the planned revision of the EU End-of-Life Vehicles Directive.

A total of 24 presentations were held on the two days of the conference. The program was accompanied by a trade exhibition that gave congress attendees the opportunity to find out about new products, services and technologies. A total of 21 exhibitors had stands at this year’s congress.

Furthermore, on the third day, plant tours were on offer to visit the companies Scholz Austria Group in Laxenburg and voestalpine Stahlwelt in Linz. Next year, the congress will be held in Geneva to coincide with the Geneva International Motor Show. The event will take place from March 11 to 13, 2020.

Research in Central and Eastern Europe: networks for automotive Innovation

– Universities in Central and Eastern Europe are working on ambitious projects for the future’s mobillity
– CEEPUS: the education network of the region presents "AutoAuto" as a platform for joint research on autonomous driving
– edubiz Symposium at the Automotive Hungary in Budapest :: Exploitation of experience and matchmaking with the industry

Through their universities, the countries of Central and Eastern Europe are positioning themselves in the new value-added chains of global automobile production. The educational network CEEPUS, which includes 15 countries in the region, is seeking intensive communication with the international automotive industry for ambitious research and development projects at universities. In the automotive trade fair "Automotive Hungary" from 17 to 18 October 2018, edubiz will be presenting the CEEPUS initiative "AutoAuto" and selected projects on the future of mobility.

Central and Eastern Europe has become a hub for the global automotive industry. Only in the four countries of Poland, Slovakia, the Czech Republic and Hungary, German manufacturers produced almost 1.7 million vehicles in 2017 – almost 17 percent of total German production abroad. The countries of the region want to reposition themselves to the changes in the value chains, which are emerging with electric mobility, the networking of vehicles and autonomous driving, to avoid a role as an "extended workbench". "Hungary wants to be an innovation hub for the automotive industry. For this we have all the skills in the country, "says Prof. László Palkovics, Hungary’s Minister of Innovation and Technology. Palkovics opens an international keynote conference on October 17, 2018 at the country’s most important automotive trade fair, Automotive Hungary. Representatives of OEMs, suppliers and research will talk about "Innovation – the driving force behind the automotive industry".

In Budapest, therefore, the educational network CEEPUS seeks dialogue with the international automotive industry. It has also invited the universities, which are working on research projects on the future of the vehicle and mobility throughout the region, to Budapest to attend the conference and take advantage of networking opportunities with industry. "We want the impulses coming from research and teaching in the region to reach the industrial companies very quickly," says Elisabeth Sorantin, CEEPUS’ secretary-general. The dialogue format edubiz, which took place in Budapest for the first time in 2017, aims to stimulate the exchange and networking between the education sector and companies.

AutoAuto: a research network for autonomous driving

Already on October 16, 2018, a transnational coordination meeting of the CEEPUS network "AutoAuto" will take place in Budapest. Its focus is in the field of artificial intelligence and autonomous driving. "We expect an expanded potential for innovation through closer and cross-border coordinated cooperation of the various subprojects", Elisabeth Sorantin describes the initiative.

AutoAuto’s partners currently include the coordinating University of Maribor, Graz University of Technology, Budapest BME, ELTE, the University of Montenegro, universities in Gliwice, Poznan and Krakow, as well as Novi Sad, Lubljana and Zagreb. The coordination of research projects should also accelerate the transfer of knowledge into teaching and in the respective "ecosystems" of the industry. All partners of the network already cultivate intensive cooperation with each other and are involved in European research and funding projects. CEEPUS also wants to support the academic and personal exchange between the individual universities.

edubiz: Dialogue between education sector and companies

The implementation of the conference and matchmaking format edubiz in Budapest is a joint initiative of CEEPUS and the Stuttgart-based media company local global. In Germany, local global has organized edubiz events in Stuttgart and Karlsruhe since 2010. Themes were each time the resources that the education sector can provide for the international growth of companies. For 2019, partners are planning an edubiz premiere at the world’s leading trade fair for production technology, the Hannover Messe.

Automotive Hungary is a trade fair of Hungexpo in Budapest with over 200 exhibitors from 10 countries and around 10,000 trade visitors. One highlight of the trade fair is "Automotive – Techtogether" – a technical "hackathon" in which students will develop projects during the three fair’s days and present them to a specialist’s jury.
