Beijing to Host World Remanufacturing Summit
- March 28, 2016
Prominent figures from leading remanufacturing organisations in Europe and America are lined up for the fifth World Remanufacturing Summit in Beijing on May 25.
The second to be held in China, the summit will highlight the increasing focus of the Chinese authorities on remanufacturing and its role in preserving resources, creating jobs and, perhaps, above all, contributing to China’s huge environmental problems, including pollution.
“Having seen rapid development over the past ten years, China’s different remanufacturing sectors now include not only the automotive segment but also other important areas such as engineering machinery, electronic products, medical devices, and electronics technology,” the organisers say. “The World Reman Summit will provide an in-depth insight into the latest developments, thus enabling attendees from across the world to familiarise themselves with a sector that is bound to maintain high-level support from China’s leaders.”
Keynote speakers will include Gregory S. Folley, Vice President with responsibility for remanufacturing at Caterpillar Inc, the world’s largest remanufacturing business; Professor Rolf Steinhilper, Bayreuth University, Germany; Professor Nabil Nasr, Rochester Institute of Technology, U.S and Professor Zhu Sheng, National Key Laboratory for Remanufacturing, China, the Summit’s three co-Chairmen.
Other speakers will include Professor Li Jun, China FAW Group Corporation; Professor Cao Huajun, Chongqing University, China; Professor Carsten Bucker, BU Group, Germany and William Schwarck, former Editor-in-Chief of ReMaTecNews, media partner for the World Remanufacturing Summits and several more.
Established in 2012 for the purpose of bridging the gap between remanufacturing research and remanufacturing companies across the world, the Word Remanufacturing Summits have attracted a broad range of reman leaders since the inaugural event in Bayreuth, Germany, in 2012.
Immediately following the May 25 summit at the Hotel New Otani Chang Fu Gong, Shanghai-based consultancy Duxes will host its 6th China remanufacturing conference with participants from Chinese and foreign businesses and associations.
