SKZ: "Polypropylene in automotive engineering" seminar on 21-22 Würzburg in September 2021.
Without polypropylene, the automotive industry seems to have no impact. The average weight of each vehicle is about 60 kg. In terms of the number of applications in this sector, polypropylene is the most important plastic. The use of customized polypropylene compounds can reduce costs and weight. Thus, this plastic has made a valuable contribution to saving energy and improving the carbon dioxide balance.
At the SKZ seminar "Polypropylene in Automotive Engineering" on September 21-22, 2021, in Würzburg, Germany, Dr. Jürgen Rohrmann of LyondellBasell will learn about the current status and future of this material in automotive engineering Perspectives. Top speakers will report on new raw materials, innovative PP compounds and new processing methods. Special attention will be paid to the concept of lightweight construction using new materials based on polypropylene and the topic of additive manufacturing. The question "Post-consumer waste as a raw material for automotive technical components - just a vision?" can be discussed with Gerrit Hülder from Dr. Robert Bosch. Andreas von Lösecke from Rohde & Schwarz GmbH & Co. KG and André Schulze from Volkswagen gave presentations on "Challenges from injection molding to printed parts" and the topic "Autonomous driving is a challenge for plastic bumper covers". According to the organizers, technical discussions and mutual exchange in a pleasant atmosphere are an important part of the plan. The first day of the event ended with a food and wine tasting in the wine cellar of the Würzburg Residence District Court. At this high-quality conference, participants will once again be able to gain many technical and strategic ideas, new impetus for products and manufacturing processes, and also interesting contacts.
