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.

Documentation and safety studies of recycled rubber granules from End-of-Life Tyres

Recycled rubber from End-of-Life Tyres: analysis on the safety of its use as infill for artificial turf football pitches. A study promoted by Ecopneus in Italy in 2016 provides clarity on the safety of rubber granules from recycled End-of-Life tyres for the infill of synthetic turf football pitches.
