From September 19th through 21st, Ecopneus will be present at RemTech Expo 2012, the Exhibition regarding the drainage of contaminated sites and territory re-qualification. Ecopneus will be present with a booth in Pavillion 1, and a convention, where the topic will be about the old stock collection of End-of-Life Tyres from the site at Via Ca’ Rosa in Ferrara.

Eight thousand tons of ELTs had been accumulated in the landfill over the years due to the bankruptcy of the company that should have recycled it. Thanks to Ecopneus’ action, the removal of all End-of-Life Tyres in the area was made possible, avoiding possible risks for public health and for the environment.

Besides the management of ELTs deriving from the substitution operations within the replacement market as foreseen by the M.D. of April 11th, 2011, n.82, Ecopneus can, on an exceptional basis, make withdrawals from old stocks; this is allowed when such withdrawals contribute to the achievement of the recovery targets established by the law, and when the conditions for an efficient after collection recovery exist.
