29th ETRA Conference on Tyre Recycling

29th ETRA Conference on Tyre Recycling Image 1

“Circular Transition in Tyre Recycling”

is the title of the 29th Annual ETRA Conference on Tyre Recycling that will take place Wednesday through Friday, 17 - 19 April 2024 at Le Louise Hotel in Brussels.

Influential and informative as always it is the unrivalled ‘one-stop’ shop for all those seeking the latest insights into the worldwide business of tyre recycling. With its focus on providing insights into every aspect of the ever more important subject of used tyre management no other single event comes close to delivering essential insights into our future as an industry with its many conference sessions, exhibitions networking and social opportunities.

The Plenary Sessions on Thursday will focus on issues confronting recyclers today: The Circular Transition is moving ahead, but what are the trends in the Global Economy and the impact on Tyre Recycling. Quantifying ELT arising across the EU is fundamental, but what the data does not tell?  What are the positions of the stakeholders? Are we sure that the sports market will decline ? Tyre manufacturers will be able to use more recyclates? While other markets like Transport Infrastructures and Building Construction are growing and are looking for sustainable materials. These are just some points that will be addressed. Then the exciting Spotlight on Innovation. Friday will start by exploring new technologies to produce recyclates materials for the rubber industry and others: an update on the latest developments, new projects, improvements in materials quality. Pyrolysis is always very topical: new projects, improved technologies, high quality and growing interest. The final session will be on EU Programs and funding opportunities.

There are many informal opportunities for Delegates and Speakers to meet and discuss common interests during, cocktail receptions and meals and after-hours meetings.
