Tyre Recovery Association to launch pyrolysis group

In response to the growing interest in tyre pyrolysis in the UK and beyond, the Tyre Recovery Association is to launch a sub-group of interested members to address a number of matters of common importance.

The aim of the new group which will hold its first scoping meeting in January 2021 will be to consider pyrolysis in the context of the current regulatory environment as well as barriers and opportunities in the areas of product and market development.

With the number of potential new market entrants on the increase, ensuring we, as a nation, are well-placed to benefit from this developing process for dealing with post-consumer tyres is a ‘must’.  From being all too often viewed as a ‘problem’ waste our old tyres should be seen as an important resource which deserves to be better valorised.  Our hope is that tyre pyrolysis as a now emerging technology will play a significant role in achieving this ambition.

About the TRA

A cornerstone of the body is its support for the Responsible Recycler Scheme.  All TRA members are fully accredited by the scheme, which ensures that all tyres collected, recycled or reprocessed by them are disposed of or reused in an environmentally friendly or acceptable methods. However, markets for tyre recovery continue to grow and develop and as the EU Landfill Directive is applied right across Europe a new international dimension will evolve. The Tyre Recovery Association has the independent ability to pursue its broader objectives at both industry and government levels, generate performance data specific to its member’s interests as well as develop stronger links across the tyre recycling world.
