Ecopneus Report 2017
The management of End-of-Life Tyres (ELTs) in Italy represents a case of excellence at international level. Indeed, our Country has been able to bring to speed a management system that covers all national territory extensively and that has guaranteed the collection and recovery of 100% of ELTs that have been legally placed on the spare parts market since 2011.
Ecopneus is the main protagonist of this national system, managing about 70% of the overall amount of ELTs throughout all national territory every year.
BUT THE CHALLENGE DOES NOT END HERE.
Today, the main objective for both the present and the future of our Country is to set up a circular economy. It is a lynchpin for the protection of the natural environment and for an economy that looks to the future, making sustainability a fundamental element of development and new qualified jobs, thanks to research and innovation.
Ecopneus has always known that its main objective is the following: on top of waste management, its commitment has always focused on the promotion of the uses of recycled rubber, the market of its applications, and the qualification of the companies of the chain, basing its work on ethics and legality.
