FEMM Hub lead researcher presents at Automotive IQ’s 10th Advanced E-Motor Technology conference in Munich
The 10th Advanced E-Motor Technology conference returned on 21 to 23 February 2023 in Munich.
This event attracted experts from across the supply chain, including Advanced Electric Machines, Audi, Automobili Estrema, Elaphe Propulsion Technologies, Renault Group, Mahindra Racing, Punch Powertrain, Schaeffler, Valeo, Umbra Group, Volkswagen and many more.
The industry has reached a place where the design of e-motors is well understood and now there is a push to learn how to produce environmentally e-motors from the design stage, and to get to a point where recycling and secondary life is a priority and not an afterthought. Our lead researcher from NMIS, Dr Jill Miscandlon, was invited to present at this event as a result of her work on work-package GCX1.
Dr Jill Miscandlon presented on the first day of the conference, her presentation titled ‘E-Motor Recyclability: Cradle to Grace Design Strategies’ explored one of the hottest and most important topics in the e-motor segment galvanised discourse and incited thought provoking commentary and questions. Jill also took part in the interactive panel discussion on reducing the environmental footprint of e-motor design. The presentation was a success with numerous thought-provoking questions from the audience that continued on into the breaks!

Where recycling and second life is a priority, not an afterthought
The industry has reached a place where the design of e-motors is well understood and now there is a push to learn how to design e-motors to be environmentally friendly from the design stage. This issue encompasses design as well as the selection of materials in the process of building the e-motor to be fully recyclable.
This presentation and interactive discussion are designed to demonstrate new design strategies and techniques to build environmentally friendly motors, that can be recycled or reused at the end of their first life.
Learn what factors organisations have considered during the design phase, to ensure that recyclability remains a priority at the end of the cycle.
Evaluate how strategists collaborate with design teams to achieve recyclability of the motors.
Learn how to ensure that every part of the motor is recyclable after its first life.
