Together with the consolidation of the main applications for recycled rubber, thanks to Research and Development, Ecopneus is working to open new horizons to the potentialities of recycled rubber. In collaboration with MATREC new bonded materials are being experimented, where ELT recycled rubber is combined with other materials such as: leather, cork, fabric or wood. The aim is to widen the use range of recycled rubber from ELTs, for example: for furnishing, design, boats, building and giftware. Innovative materials with recycled rubber and thermoplastic materials are the ones created, instead, with the project Tyreplast in collaboration with IdeaPlast. It is aimed at creating new thermoplastic compounds at the service of the industry in the sectors of automotive, zootechnics, urban furnishing for technical products and many more.
