Recycling Forum and Recycling Chain

The Recycling Forum provided a complete overview of the decisive aspects in the field of tire recycling. The special area was organised by the trade journals “Retreading Business” and “Tyre & Rubber Recycling” – the two most important global media of the industry.

In an industry first, Tyre and Rubber Recycling is bringing the tyre recycling sector into the heart of the tyre industry. In a series of nine seminar sessions Tyre and Rubber Recycling introduced 29 speakers from across the industry and around the world to speak about tyre recycling at the largest tyre industry event in Europe in 2018.

Never before has the recycling sector been invited into the tyre industry’s premium European event in this way. Speakers will represent the European Tyre and Rubber Manufacturer’s Association, Signus, Ecopneus, equipment suppliers, researchers and product developers.
