Global Tire Sustainability
23 European countries have adopted EPR programs to increase recycling and achieve higher end-uses for used tires. Learn how the US is stepping up and advancing tire sustainability by joining our webinar with Product Stewardship Institution.
The Tire Problem
The U.S. generates approximately 242 million scrap tires each year. Although tire recycling opportunities exist across North America, more than half tire delivered from disposal are burned as tire-derived fuel (TDF), which produces energy but is more resource intensive than reuse or recycling scrap tires into new tires and other products, and is a missed opportunity to create additional recycling jobs.
TreadWright, a Texas-based company, has developed a superior remolded tire that uses 70 percent recycled material, costs 40 percent less than new tires, and is approved by the U.S. Department of Transportation.
Join The Discussion
Join us for our webinar Tuesday, June 12th, 2018 1:00pm - 2:30PM EDT. We will be discussing the technological innovation developed by TreadWright and their role in advancing tire recycling in the U.S. We'll also hear from a tire trade association representative who will discuss broad sustainability goals of tire repair, reuse/retread, and recycling as well as long-time TreadWright tire user who will discuss the user perspective.
