The first stop of the ELT Academy of Ecopneus in 2019 was carried out in Olgiate Molgora, Lecco. The ELT Academy of Ecopneus is a training workshop about the correct management of End-of-Life tyres dedicated to the Security Forces and the technical figures of the Control and Vigilance Bodies of the Public Administration.
It has been an important moment of dialogue and confrontation under the patronage of the Province of Lecco, the Council of Olgiate Molgora, ISPRA and ARPA Lombardy, and organised in collaboration with Legambiente. The following people intervened during the course of this meeting: Senator Paolo Arrigoni in his role as Commissioner of the Senate and member of the Environmental Commission; Claudio Usuelli President of the Province of Lecco; Matteo Fratangeli, Assessor to the Environment and Public Works of the Council of Olgiate Molgora; Paola Colombo, Assessor to Instruction of the Council of Olgiate Molgora; Giuseppe Sgorbati, Technical and Scientific Director of ARPA Lombardy; Giovanni Corbetta, General Manager of Ecopneus; Paola Ficco, Lawyer and Environmental Jurist, and Antonio Pergolizzi of Legambiente.
ELT Academy has reached its 17th stop since 2013. It represents a moment of training that, thanks to the contribution of experts and jurists at national level, offers precise indications and operative tools to the technical figures and the members of the Security Forces who daily face the technical-legal aspects related to the management of End-of-Life tyres on the territory. Indeed, it is possible to exploit the many advantages offered by the use of recycled materials obtained from End-of-Life tyres only if the latter are correctly channelled into the recycling cycle.
Giovanni Corbetta, General Manager of Ecopneus stated: “We pay great attention to the topic of training, above all for the Security Forces and Control Bodies, as this allows us to build a relationship of reciprocal collaboration with the various bodies involved in the management of ELTs on the territory. An important moment of discussion that contributes both to constantly optimise a system that has already demonstrated to guarantee the correct recovery of 100% of ELTs, and to build a strong culture of recycling of this precious material”.
