Tyre recycling is a key sector to make Europe the first climate-neutral continent, a key objective of the European Green Deal. Tyre recycling into rubber granulates saves 58,4% of CO2 when compared with end-of-life tyre’s co-incineration2 and can reach 95% of carbon footprint reductions when compared to those of virgin materials substituted.
The Green Deal is “a new growth strategy that aims to transform the EU into a fair and prosperous society, with a modern, resource-efficient and competitive economy where there are no net emissions of greenhouse gases in 2050 and where economic growth is decoupled from resource use,” according to the words used by European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen to present a list of policy initiatives and delivery timelines.
ETRA Partner Member of EuRIC contributed to and support the Top 5 priorities of the Recycling Industry for the period 2019-2024 to realise the internal market for recycling to boost the circular economy and combat climate change.
