Battery Recycling Conference & Expo 2024 is the must-attend event for battery producers, recycling companies, critical raw material suppliers, and the entire battery supply chain to come together to discover the latest innovations and solutions to create a circular economy for used batteries and help create sustainable supply chains for the future.

The conference will cover a number of highly targeted topics with a holistic approach to reducing the environmental impact of battery production and ensure maximum recovery of critical raw materials from end-of-life batteries.

Battery Recycling

Electric vehicle manufacturers, battery manufacturers, battery recyclers, research organisations and NGOs, will come together to discuss the latest challenges for battery recycling and end-of-life solutions.

Metal & Critical Raw Material Recycling

Metals and CRM’s are playing an ever growing role in a number key industries. As well as contributing to the circular economy and lowering carbon emissions, recycling will be crucial in reducing reliance on foreign imports and increasing stability in the supply chain.

IARC is the international platform for discussing the latest developments and challenges in circular economy and automotive recycling that brings together up to 300 decision-makers from the automotive and recycling sector, especially car manufacturers, metal suppliers, plastic scrap traders, recyclers, shredder operators, policy-makers and many more.

The 2024 edition will be hosted in Antwerp, Belgium, between 19-21 June.

What to expect at IARC 2024:

  • A significant transformation is underway in the realm of vehicle recycling, with global implications!
  • Given the close scrutiny of this development in European legislation by other global regions, it is set to be a focal point for discussion at IARC 2024.
  • This topic is of particular relevance to all stakeholders operating within the automotive circular economy value chain.
  • The European Commission released a Proposal for a Regulation on End-of-Life Vehicles during the summer of 2023. A Public Consultation, entitled ‘Have Your Say,’ provided stakeholders with the opportunity to express their views on the Proposal until early December 2023.
  • The positions that the EU Council and the EU Parliament will take throughout 2024 will shape the final outcome of this landmark legislation.

The organisers of ees Europe, working together with the experts from the ees Europe Conference committee and the prestigious conference partners, put together a highly topical two-day program focusing on the most important market and technology trends for energy storage. The ees Europe Conference will take place in Messe München/Munich, Germany, between 18 and 19 June 2024.

Stationary energy storage is fast growing in importance at every point in the energy supply chain. Likewise, eMobility is gaining traction worldwide. The greater need for both is fuelling demand for storage facilities and grid connectivity.

Where are the most promising markets for stationary and mobile energy storage? Which financing schemes are being applied and what are viable innovative ways of funding? Which players are defining industry best practice with transferable business models? Which quality standards must be met and what is the role of energy storage in the perspective of sector coupling? What are the trends and innovations for hydrogen technology and power-to-gas? These topics will be discussed at ees Europe Conference.

The Raw Materials Summit is a call-to-action – a platform – for industry leaders, educators and innovative new talent to share their vision for a sustainable raw materials future. The aim is to raise awareness of the critical role of raw materials, exchange knowledge and break down the barriers that delay sustainable value chains.

The event will take place this year at The Egg Brussels, Rue Bara 175, 1070 Bruxelles, Belgium, between 14 and 16 May.

The transition to clean energy means changing how we identify, source, use and re-use raw materials. We are all dependent on a sustainable raw materials supply and need to play an active role in the creation and maintenance of a responsible raw materials sector.

The 6th edition of the Raw Materials Summit will feature topics such as:
  • Critical Raw Materials Act (CRMA) and its impact
  • Raw Materials Academy and our future workforce
  • Changes to supply, demand and the latest trade policies
  • Electrification through renewables – and nuclear
  • Heightening mineral security for defense & space
  • Three nations present minerals investment plans
