The Leading Journal for the Tyre Recycling Sector

Tyre Recycling Forum at The Tire 29th May to 1st June 2018

In an industry first, Tyre and Rubber Recycling is bringing the tyre recycling sector into the heart of the tyre industry. In a series of nine seminar sessions, Tyre and Rubber Recycling will be introducing 29 speakers from across the industry and around the world to speak about tyre recycling at the largest tyre industry event in Europe in 2018.

Never before has the recycling sector been invited into the tyre industry’s premium European event in this way. Speakers will represent the European Tyre and Rubber Manufacturer’s Association, Signus, Ecopneus, equipment suppliers, researchers and product developers. All speaking at the seminars that will take place on the Recycling Forum in Hall 9 at Koelnmesse, over the first three days of the show. What is more, access to these seminars is free. Normally, many of these speakers and presentations can only be heard at paid for conferences. Here at The Tire Cologne, once the entrance fee to the exhibition is paid, the Tyre Recycling Seminars are free of charge.

The recycling sector asked to get closer to the tyre manufacturers, and Tyre and Rubber Recycling has done its best to make that happen.  Come and attend the seminars, join the discussion and take the opportunity to speak to our presenters. Or, go and visit the tyre manufacturers’ stands and make direct contact with their technical experts and ask them about their approach to recycling and how you can help them.

On Friday there will be the opportunity for recycling exhibitors to present their equipment and services in the arena.

Remember 9 sessions, 29 speakers, and no additional costs to attend.
