ETRMA Tyre Arising Stats Released
ETRMA, the European Tyre and Rubber Manufacturers’ Association, has consolidated data on the management of End of Life Tyres (ELTs) for 2019 covering 32 countries (EU27, Norway, Serbia, Switzerland, Turkey and UK). 94 per cent of ELTs in the 32 countries were collected and treated for material recycling and energy recovery. This situation is quite comparable to the previous years with ELT treatment rates fluctuating between 92 and 95 per cent. The European tyre industry is committed to an innovative and sustainable economy. ELTs are collected and their treatment is organised across European countries, the vast majority operating under EPR. Secondary raw materials from ELTs are important resources for industries such as construction, automotive and cement.
ETRMA Publishes Recycling Figures
Tyre and Rubber Recycling expects that there may be some disagreement within the industry about the detail of these statistics. Not least for the 100% treatment claims being made. However, a look at some of the larger markets hints at some anomalies, possibly arising through differences in accounting practices.
