2011-2020 Sustainability Report


The equivalent of a pile of tyres with the dimensions of a football pitch and 1.5km high. This is the amount of ELTs – End-of-Life Tyres – that have been recovered thanks to the activities of the Ecopneus chain in 10 years.  Thanks to the recovery activities of Ecopneus, over 1.15 billion euros have been saved on the imports of virgin raw materials. Moreover, 3.36 million tonnes of CO2 equivalent were not dispersed into the atmosphere and 3.3 million tonnes of virgin raw materials as well as 15.5 million m3 of water were not used. Ecopneus is the main operator in the management of End-of-Life Tyres in Italy (about 60% of the total).

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)



Technical Journals

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)
