ETRA Innovation Workshop in Turin

ETRA – The European Tyre Recycling Association, in co-operation with the Chamber of Commerce of Turin, Politecnico of Turin, Environment Park, CLEVER Proplast, CGreen, CEI Piemonte, ANTEL and ARGO, are running an Up-cycle – Upgrading Recycled Tyre Materials, Products and Applications workshop on the 26th January 2018.

Packed Schedule for ETRA to Illustrate Benefits of Recycling

The workshop is designed to illustrate the many current and potential uses of Recycled Tyre Materials (RTMs) in various fields of application, highlighting the flexibility of use and high performance of the materials. ETRA hopes to stimulate discussions on new product development, research projects and cooperation. Topics will include: thermal, vibration and noise insulation, flexible and reinforced concrete, rubber compounds and thermo-plastic elastomeric materials, automotive and rail products, sports applications.

The programme will bring together companies from tyre recycling and end-user sectors with researchers from Universities and experts from various fields.

The goal is to come up with new partnerships and projects for the upcoming EU Funding Calls for 2018-2020. In order to increase their opportunities Participants may enter their cooperation profile into the ETRA Partner Registry, and to receive further assistance after the workshop as well. They will become part of a dynamic process that includes other

opportunities. The very next one will be on 14-16 March 2018, in Brussels at the ETRA Conference. There will be a one day NCP workshop, for a limited group of 15-20 attendees to define the key elements for 1-2 projects (partners, call, etc.). This workshop is part of a programme with various Universities around Europe, coordinated by ETRA that will continue throughout 2018 in the frame of ETRA 25th Anniversary. The program will cover all the main issues related to tyre recycling, and will analyse the state of the art, the problems, the technology and market potential.
