The afternoon will focus on the role of GPP in expanding Municipal and commercial use of RTMs in construction, transport infrastructure and maintenance for road, rail, tram and sea as well new opportunities in the automotive and consumer products sectors. Friday Plenaries will focus on New markets for Innovative Materials, Applications and Technologies. The afternoon will explore Pyrolysis as it moves into an array of traditional markets. The final session will identify opportunities to develop strategies to make tyre recycling a key contributor to the Circular Economy after 2020.
