Music lives in silence, thanks to recycled rubber
In 2017 the Foundation Arturo Toscanini inaugurated the Music Production Centre “Arturo Toscanini”, composed of two large rehearsal rooms, a conference room, archives, offices, warehouses, technical rooms and study rooms. It is an integrating part of the project Music Park, started by the Council.
The biggest rehearsal room (400 square metres) is dedicated to Gianandrea Gavazzeni. It underwent a major acoustic intervention. The materials used for this renovation project came from the recycling of End-of-Life Tyres.
Sport and innovation meet on the pitch of Bologna FC1909
Bologna Fc 1909, Ecopneus, and Limonta Sport wanted to demonstrate that not only the pitch matters, but, if made with an innovative technology, it can also really make the difference. To this aim and thanks to their collaboration, a Duo Shape pitch with Geolastic has been installed at the sports centre of Bologna FC 1909. Geolastic is a performing infill composed of a mix of recycled rubber from End-of-Life Tyres and organic material. A state-of-the-art surface designed for training but also for footballers’ and athletes’ rehabilitation, as they make of their body the main tool of their performances.

Ecopneus and the collection of 40,000 tonnes of ELTs Castelletto di Branduzzo (Pavia)
A story with a happy ending that combines environmental and health protection and respect of legality. This is the story of the industrial site of the ex-Ecogomma in Castelletto di Branduzzo in the Province of Pavia. For 15 years, over 37,000 tonnes of ELTs lied abandoned due to the bankruptcy of the company that was supposed to recycle them. In about 1,100 working days and with 1,600 journeys of vehicles, the area has been completely emptied this winter thanks to the about 5 million euros Ecopneus sponsored for this intervention.
Tyreplast: from recycled rubber to compound
New compounds capable of uniting performances, quality, and environmental sustainability, valorising the sound-proofing and anti-vibration characteristics of two resources that possess numerous advantages: recycled rubber powder from End-of-Life Tyres and thermoplastic materials. Today all this is possible thanks to Tyreplast, the new project promoted by Ecopneus and Idea Plast, aimed at giving birth to innovative thermoplastic materials at the service of the industry.
