Executive Interview: Frank Schlehuber, aftermarket director, CLEPA, on automotive remanufacturing in Europe

Policy and Regulation

In an exclusive interview with IHS Markit, Frank Schlehuber, Aftermarket Director and Senior Consultant for Market Affairs at European Association of Automotive Suppliers (CLEPA), talks about the state of the remanufacturing industry in Europe, its role in the circular economy, the opportunities brought by the transition to EVs, the key challenges faced by the sector, and more.

The remanufacturing industry has existed for several decades, but while operations began as small businesses, the past few years have seen participation from OEMs and tier-1 suppliers, which have begun to see its economic and environmental benefits. Remanufacturing makes an important contribution to achieving the carbon dioxide (CO2) reduction targets that the European Commission is striving for with the Green Deal, and its role has been recognized in the European Commission’s Circular Economy Action Plan as well.
