The impact of composites on Mobility 4.0 challenges
The challenges raised by Mibility 4.0 (electric connected and autonomous vehicles) can be solved using composites that offer highly adapted solutions for the new challenges faced by this sector, particularly in the context of the rising electrification of vehicles.
Hence, the 2019 edition of JEC Asia will host for the first time the eMove360° ASIA pavilion and conferences focusing on Mobility 4.0.
Eric Pierrejean, JEC Group CEO, says:
The automotive industry is accelerating the transition to electric mobility, but also to alternative energy sources such as hydrogen. At the same time, connected vehicles are increasingly developing into entirely autonomous systems. In both cases, composite materials play a crucial role because of their numerous advantages. They enable not only lightweight construction and ultimate freedom of design, but also the integration of new functions such as connectivity, battery housings and insulation for electric cars or fuel tanks for hydrogen and CNG vehicles.
The eMove360°is the International Trade Fair for Mobility 4.0 – electric-connected and autonomous driving and sustainable mobility solutions.
Celebrating Innovation and Knowledge
All large-scale events focus on networking and establishing business contacts between corporations and suppliers of new solutions & applications.
JEC Asia 2019 traditionally holds events promoting innovations and new ideas. During the composite trade fair, the 2nd leg of the JEC Startup Booster competition will be held. It is the leading startup competition in the world of composites that enables companies to find and assess innovations with a potential impact on their respective industry.
The 10 finalists selected in the region by a prestigious jury, will pitch their project to win a chance to showcase their work at JEC World 2020 in Paris.
The JEC Innovation Awards is a long-established and worldwide program with 3 simple goals: identify, promote and reward the most innovative composite solutions in the world. Over the past 15 years, the JEC Innovation Program has involved 1,800 companies worldwide; 177 companies and 433 partners have been rewarded for the excellence of their composite innovations.
The JEC Innovation Awards reward composites champions, based on criteria such as partner involvement in the value chain, technicality or commercial applications of innovations. The award ceremony will take place on the second day of JEC Asia, on November 14th, 2019.
EC Asia 2019 will also feature a fulfilling conference program with experts from the industry giving their insights on the latest developments in high-performance composite technologies and applications.
JEC Asia 2019 conferences main themes will focus on:
- International Carbon Festival Conference organized with our partner, KCTech.
- Automotive composite golden triangle: low CAPEX, low cost but high volume
- Automotive hybrid solutions: take the best of each material
- Aeronautics: faster processes and new materials
- Business opportunities (Raw materials, Process, Application, Countries, Region)
Finally, JEC Asia offers the opportunity to visit Composites sites. This year professionals will live a full experience of South Korea composites Industry.
