ETRA, the European Tyre Recycling Association, in co-operation with ANTEL, IFME, University of Rome Torvergata, Lazio Innova, Politecnico of Turin, and ARGO, are pleased to invite you to:

up- cycle - Upgrading Recycled Tyre Materials, Products and Applications

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.
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.
