Vyncolit NV and Sumitomo Bakelite Co., Ltd. summit highlights need for lightweighting powertrains in the electric future


Vyncolit NV and Sumitomo Bakelite Co., Ltd., Gent, Belgium, May 17th 2018: Powertrains, be they conventional, hybrid or fully electric, will need to be light in weight if carmakers are to meet the stringent regulations on carbon dioxide emissions (CO2) to come into force in 2025 - and composites will be key to making this happen.

This was the key message delivered at the Lightweight Composite Solutions Conference organized by thermoset plastics professionals Vyncolit NV and Sumitomo Bakelite Co., Ltd. and held in Gent, Belgium.

The conference was attended by over 50 experts from leading OEMs, suppliers and research institutes in automotive lightweighting, including Nissan Motor, Volkswagen, Renault Nissan Mitsubishi, FEV Europe, Brembo, Robert Bosch, Mahle Filtersysteme, KraussMaffei and the Fraunhofer Institute for Chemical Technology (ICT).
