Up-Cycle Workshops Planned for November

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. Topics will include: thermal, vibration and noise insulation, flexible and reinforced concrete, rubber compounds and thermo-plastic elastomeric materials, rubberised asphalt, roads and rail products, sports applications. The scope is to stimulate discussions on new product development, research projects and cooperation.

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. This workshop is part of a programme with various Universities around Europe, coordinated by ETRA that will continue throughout 2019 in the frame of 26th ETRA Conference on 20-22 March 2019, in Brussels.

The Rome event, thanks to the faculties specialisation and the economic context, will be focused on:

  • Sustainable Buildings
  • Structural Engineering
  • Architecture & Design
  • Chemical and Materials
