24th Annual European Tyre recycling Conference
: ETRA, 16 Avenue de Tervueren ,1040 Brussels BELGIUM
Time: 2017-03-22 08:00 - 2017-03-24 18:00
The 24th Annual ETRA Conference on Tyre Recycling will take place on 22 – 24 March 2017 at the NH Hotel du Grand Sablon in Brussels. The conference theme, Defining the Circular Economy for Tyre Recycling, will focus on industry to industry, business to business opportunities leading to durable market growth.
The conference offers the recycling sector an opportunity to come together to discuss the latest challenges and opportunities that face this increasingly important and specialised industry. Tyre recycling is an industry in its own right, with clearly defined raw materials, a structure for processing and markets for the end products – that is working together towards a range of international guidance documents and standards.
Today, tyre recycling is an industry facing a number of challenges in the drive towards taking its place in the circular economy. This year the Conference will focus on exploring these challeges with the aim of identifying solutions and opportunities for recyclers especially in terms of material options, potential end-users and expanded markets.
The Plenary Sessions are scheduled for Thursday 23rd and Friday 24th March and will include discussions on:
- Producer responsibility and eco-design
- Technical rubber and polymer compounds using ELT materials
- Examining the opportunities for use in road construction
- Expanding markets in urban construction – membranes, concrete, trams and trains
- The many opportunities for pyrolytic materials
We look forward to seeing you in Brussels!
