EuRIC Lobbies European Commission
EuRIC reaffirms its commitment to the objectives of the circular economy and calls upon the commission to support continued use of granular infill made from recycled tyres.
EuRIC Requests EU to Support Tyre-derived Granular Infill
EuRIC has warned the European Commission about the questionable future of 527,000 tonnes of end-of-life tyres that may be annually incinerated, or worst stockpiled and illegally landfilled, if a ban on granular infill is adopted.
EuRIC demands that tyre recycling into infill for artificial turf is regarded as a strategic objective of the new Circular Economy Package considering the substantial environmental benefits of this application.
EuRIC reiterates that preserving a circular economy for tyre recycling into artificial turf infill can and must go hand in hand with reducing microplastics’ releases through standardised risk management measures.
