JOIN OUR LIVE REMATEC WEBINARS

The worldwide focus on sustainability and the circular economy, in combination with the current large price increases of raw materials, require sustainable manufacturing methods. The remanufacturing industry has the knowledge and expertise to produce sustainably and improve the product life cycle.

Rematec is the global platform for the remanufacturing industry that connects industry experts with knowledge institutes and governmental bodies. Rematec is dedicated to serve the industry and the remanufacturing community by sharing stories, expert views and advice via our (online and in-person) events year-round. In the run up to Rematec Amsterdam 2023 we will organise several free to attend online knowledge sessions. 

Our Rematec webinars schedule: 

  • ✔️ TUESDAY 28 JUNE | Eyes on China: Opportunities for the remanufacturing industry in China 
  • TUESDAY 20 SEPTEMBER | Eyes on Electric Vehicles: Impact & opportunities of EVs for the remanufacturing industry | 10.00-11.00 cest | 10.00-11.00 cest
  • TUESDAY 13 DECEMBER | Eyes on Europe | 10.00-11.00 cest 
  • EYES ON ELECTRIC VEHICLES: IMPACT & OPPORTUNITIES OF ELECTRIC VEHICLES FOR THE REMANUFACTURING INDUSTRY
    20 SEPTEMBER 2022 | 10.00-11.00 CEST

    In July’22 the European Parliament lawmakers voted to support an effective EU ban on the sale of new petrol and diesel cars from 2035. This decision will speed up Europe’s shift towards electric vehicles (EVs). As a result of this important electrical paradigm shift, and in order to prepare new strategies, remanufacturers must follow the new technical developments closely and start immediately to study and research these new systems and their new components. Short-term production changes are not yet necessary although the changes may come sooner than proposed above.

    What to expect

    During the REMATEC Webinar – Eyes on EVs you learn what the impact of electrification will be in the near and far future. Experts from the industry and leading knowledge institutes will share their views on the opportunities and challenges for remanufacturing. What are the near future predictions towards Electric Vehicles (EVs) and what is its impact to the remanufacturing industry? How to deal with obstacles as high-voltage batteries and the logistics of classified dangerous goods?  Who will pick up the opportunities? Or is it simply too early – or late – to get involved?

    20 SEP 22 | IMPACT & OPPORTUNITIES OF ELECTRIC VEHICLES FOR THE REMANUFACTURING INDUSTRY


    EYES ON CHINA:  OPPORTUNITIES FOR THE REMANUFACTURING INDUSTRY IN CHINA
    28 JUN 2022 | 10.00-11.00 CEST

    China is the largest automotive market worldwide. However the Chinese remanufacturing industry is still very young. Recently the Chinese government has announced new policies for the remanufacturing industry. They decided to liberalise the bonded remanufacturing of key auto parts such as automobile engines. This creates great opportunities for the international remanufacturing industry to do business and share their knowledge and experience.

    What to expect 

    During the Rematec webinar, you will learn from Mr. Xie Jianjun, Secretary General of CPRA, what this new Chinese policy means for the remanufacturing industry. Following this keynote, well-known experts, as Clemens Ortgies, Julia Ma, Mike Yu and Huang Zhiyong, will discuss the impact of this new policy on the domestic remanufacturing business. What are the most important changes? What are the new opportunities for the international companies to enter the largest automotive market in the world? Based upon their experience our panellists will share with you what the do’s and don’t’s are of doing business in the Chinese remanufacturing industry, and they will give you advise on how to start. This 'Eyes on China' webinar is moderated by Rajiv Ramchandra, founder of Re:CREATe.
