2021 Sustainability Report
Guaranteeing every year the collection and recovery of 100% of End-of-Life Tyres generated by the change of tyres legally put on the replacement market the previous year: this is the goal of the management system in Italy, which was launched in 2011 and has quickly become one of Europe’s best practices. Contributing to this result is the constant commitment of Ecopneus, that is not limited to the collection and recovery of about 200,000 tonnes of ELTs each year, but goes further to expand the possibilities of using recycled rubber, structuring the supply chain industrially and thus achieving a concrete and sustainable closure of the recovery cycle of this precious resource.

Ecopneus Effect Report
The Symbola Foundation for the Italian Qualities has chosen to describe this system of excellence in its latest publication, the “Ecopneus Effect”: A +64.8% increase in the occupation of the companies of the chain; increase of efficiency and quality of the recycled materials, progressive autonomy of companies on the market.

Brochure on the applications of recycled rubber
Brochures of Ecopneus on the applications of recycled rubber from End-of-Life Tyres. Simple and brief manuals to have all necessary information about the main applications of recycled rubber. (documents in italian)
In collaboration with Universities and research centres, Ecopneus has promoted a series of technical dossiers in the course of the years. They scientifically deal with technical aspects, case histories, experiences and characteristics of the various applications of recycled rubber.
The dossiers are distributed in all the events of reference; they are shipped to some selected contacts, and they can be freely downloaded from our website.
The objective of these dossiers is to spread technical information and experience that may facilitate and expand the use of recycled rubber in the various sectors of application as much as possible. (documents in italian)
