Japan To Host 2014 International Roundtable On Auto Recycling
Registration is now officially open for the 2014 International Roundtable on Auto Recycling (IRT). This year’s event takes place in Kushiro, Japan, from October 1 - 4, 2014.
This will be the first IRT organized by the newly formed Global Automotive Recyclers Alliance (GARA), made up of the major automotive recycler associations from around the world.
The four-day event will include an international conference, factory visits and reception party. Topics will include country reports, international standards for automotive recycling, international certification programs; the adoption of Green Recycled Parts and qualifications and training systems for auto recyclers. Strategic planning around the next steps for GARA will also be discussed
The IRT brings the leading international auto recycler associations, industry officials, guest speakers and auto recyclers discuss the global auto recycling industry.
This is the eighth IRT. The last IRT took place in Phoenix, Ariz., in November 2013. Previous IRT’s have been in Brussels, Las Vegas, Tokyo, Coffs Harbour, Quebec City and Liverpool. Each IRT is unique to the local association hosting it. The Japanese Auto Recyclers Association will host the Kushiro City event.
