More than 95% of fuel tanks produced in Europe are currently made of plastics!
This high penetration rate is explained by the strong benefits brought by plastic solutions in this application.
MOST RELEVANT INDUSTRY EVENTS
Each year PlasFuelSys members participate in both the Tank Tech and the ITB.
The conference tank.tech takes place every two years in Munich, Germany.
ITB Automotive Fuel Systems China 2019
The ITB Group will present its 13th annual Automotive Fuel Systems conference taking place in Shanghai, China.
Plastic fuel tanks and systems are designed to offer environment-friendly; cost-effective; light-weight; and safe solutions to the Automotive Industry
Recyclability has also been extensively demonstrated and HDPE derived from End-of-Life tanks is mostly recycled today in second life applications.
Plastic tank systems also serve the dual purpose of decreasing the vehicle’s overall weight, as an average plastic tank weighs two-thirds less than an average steel tank.
Fuel Systems industry developed innovative SCR system solutions, allowing to store and distribute on-board urea-water solutions, which has been recognized as the best technique to abate engine NOX emissions.
Since entering the market in 1976, Plastic Fuel Systems have continuously increased market share replacing steel due to superior product performances.
ALTERNATIVE POWER TRAINS AND "HYBRIDS"
Plastics fuel tank systems provide innovative solutions to address the fast growing market of hybrid vehicles.
