Lightweighting in spotlight at Montreal conference

At last month’s Movin' On Conference(formerly known as Michelin Challenge Bibendum) in Montreal, technical textiles and composites specialist Kordsa made a presentation that emphasized the need to lighten vehicles for efficient and sustainable mobility. Kordsa’s presentation also covered the differences that it could make in mobility with its composites technologies, developed through its open innovation approach.

The Movin'On Conference, organized with the goal of ‘living a global, smart, sustainable and multi-model mobility’, aims to find sustainable solutions to the challenges of moving people and goods from one place to another and refers to the effects on mobility of the ground-breaking changes in daily life. Kordsa, which claims to be the reinforcer of one in every three automobile tyres and two out of every three aircraft tyres worldwide, highlighted current issues of mobility and emphasized the need to lighten vehicles for efficient and sustainable mobility in moving a mass from one place to another.

During the conference, more than 4000 participants from 31 countries came together and over 70 speakers made inspiring presentations, and held panels, roundtable meetings and practical workshops.

Kordsa, which claims to be the reinforcer of one in every three automobile tyres and two out of every three aircraft tyres worldwide, highlighted current issues of mobility and emphasized the need to lighten vehicles for efficient and sustainable mobility in moving a mass from one place to another. 

The presentation also underlined the future of mobility, and how to make mobility more efficient in the future and reiterated Kordsa’s aim to reduce the rolling resistance to decrease fuel consumption with its tyre reinforcement technologies and to lighten vehicles with its composite technologies to achieve a more sustainable mobility.

Kordsa, a key supporter of the open innovation model, aims to contribute to the future of mobility by developing composites technologies in a wide range of industries from aerospace to automotive thereby supporting the future of mobility by lightening the vehicles through its Composite Technologies Center of Excellencewhich serves as a technology hub.
