End-of-Life Tires (ELT)

Global ELT Management – A global state of knowledge on regulation, management systems, impacts of recovery and technologies

With data on End-of-life Tire (ELT) management practices from 45 countries, the 2019 TIP report “Global ELT Management – A global state of knowledge on regulation, management systems, impacts of recovery and technologies”, includes:

  • An overview of current and prospective regulations, ELT management systems (collection, transport & intermediate treatment stages)
  • The distribution of ELT across recovery methods, products and applications
  • A better understanding of the feasibility of different recovery route categories and associated methods, products and applications
  • An overview of studies conducted on the risk of impacts on health and the environment
  • A panorama of advanced technology and innovations in ELT recovery to overcome risks and improve viability

The report updates an earlier TIP ELT report - published in January 2018 - and contributes toward the TIP objective of advancing ELT management globally through the identification and sharing of best practices.

A global state of knowledge on collection rates, recovery routes, and management methods

TIP has developed a state of knowledge (SOK) report that takes an in-depth account of the countries around the world that produce the largest numbers of ELT.  Through this landscape analysis, TIP has identified the most promising recovery routes, and is sharing that knowledge with stakeholders so that they can focus on the most effective methods in the future. The purpose of the SOK was to get an overview of the current ELT management systems for a selection of 51 countries: Europe (countries covered by ETRMA scope - European Tire & Rubber Manufacturers' Association), USA, Japan, South Korea, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, Brazil, China, India, Indonesia, Mexico, Russia, South Africa, Thailand, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, Ukraine, Argentina and Morocco, which cover 89% of vehicles in the world.
