Materials 4 Sustainable Mobility Conference

How materials can make mobility more sustainable!

Electrification, digitalization, autonomous systems and new mobility concepts will help define the future of mobility. These mega trends will fundamentally change the way we think about mobility as a whole, and will have a major impact on the various value-chains. This will create a significant shift in use of materials. It is expected that for instance in the construction of a modern car, the need for some materials will decline, others will grow in importance and new materials will be needed in specific areas.

These trends impact material development like:

  • Lightweighting
  • Ability to embed electronics, lighting and sensing devices
  • Durability / Cleanability of materials and coatings
  • Noise reduction, thermal management, vibration management
  • Sustainability (Life Cycle Assessment)
  • Recyclability
  • Production technologies like Additive Manufacturing and hybrid technologies

Most fundamentally, succeeding in the emerging mobility landscape will likely require materials companies to dramatically re-evaluate how they do business. Instead of the traditional approach of developing a new material, companies have to collaborate across the value chain, from design to full-scale production. Approaches could vary from formal partnerships to joint ventures to participation in cross-industry mobility-focused consortia.

During the Materials for Future Mobility Conference the (inter)national speakers will present their view and experience on material innovations related to the fast changing mobility industry.
