Study visits took place in Italy, Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany. They allowed participants to visit great sites such as the Fiat Research Centre (Turin), the tyre recycler Rumal (Montfoort), the BMW Recycling and Dismantling Center (Munich) or the Daimler recycling facility (Stuttgart). The needs of the Slovenian stakeholders had been identified early with three main topics selected: materials, which included material recycling, secondary materials as a resource and benefits of using new secondary materials, second life which covered both components reuse/re-manufacturing, looking ahead which dealt with the emergence of our future vehicles including advanced internal combustion engines their parts and components and their material life cycle.
