The ETRA Project for Recycled Tyre Materials (RTMs) in Circular Cities
The aim of the project is to raise awareness about the Circular Economy opportunities for RTM products and applications that will foster the adoption of environmentally friendly behavior and practice in urban communities. The focus is to make available models and experiences that may easily be adopted to improve the Transport Infrastructures (roads and rails), Concrete and Building (steel fibers reinforced concrete for industrial flooring and roads, rubber sheets and layers for noise reduction, recycled fibers textile panels for insulation), Urban and Street Furniture, Sports and Leisure products and applications (sport facilities, rubber surfaces for multisport and leisure activities, etc.)
14 Partners from 6 EU Countries, coordinated by ETRA, will work together for 42 months, to reach the following main objectives:
- Raise awareness among Technicians of P.A., stakeholders, policymakers on the use of Recycled Tyre Materials (RTMs) in building, infrastructures and urban areas.
- Promote Circular Economy principles for RTMs in the Urban Environment.
- Develop and Promote GPP guidelines in to companies and public administrations.
- Expand the visibility of RTMs works through a web application.
The scope is to spread the use of RTMs, create more opportunities for tyre recycling value chain and the Public Administration.
The project will start on 1st January 2022. Keep following us : www.etra-eu.org
