ETRA Conference Scheduled for 17th-19th April

“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 the ETRA conference 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 ETRA 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? Will tyre manufacturers 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.

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 Programmess and funding opportunities.
