Tyre & Rubber Recycling Magazine recently sat down with Tyromer CEO Sam Visaisouk to learn more about their clean technology, their mission of sustainability, and the challenges of disrupting a longstanding industry that can be difficult to change.

2018 Rubber Recycling Symposium Coming in November

curata__X16iwnsPTSnvvTa.jpeg

The Tire and Rubber Association of Canada (TRAC), the U.S. Tire Manufacturers Association (USTMA) together with Host Sponsor, eTracks Tire Management Systems, are pleased to be hosting the 2018 Rubber Recycling Symposium, held on November 7-8 at the Sheraton on the Falls Hotel, Niagara Falls, Canada

This symposium brings together international experts and professionals from the tire and rubber manufacturing sectors, the rubber recycling industry, including processors, transporters, equipment manufacturers and stewardship organizations, as well as government and academia. This event offers a unique opportunity to explore the varied approaches in Extended Producer Responsibility, and to compare successes and opportunities for delivering and meeting our industry’s goals.

 

“Taking Sustainability to the Next Level” 

“Taking Sustainability to the Next Level” theme starts with the premise that corporate sustainability is fully embedded at the highest level of the industry. But what of the value chain as tires move through the market distribution channels to the final end-user? Do we have sustainable market players throughout the channels who act in accord with corporate sustainability goals and, more importantly, can these players operate in an ethical, social, environmental, cultural and economic sphere in the same way as their major suppliers?

To be sure, there are other drivers at play such as economic factors, market conditions and legislative imperatives that can work to either stymie or encourage taking sustainability. The 2108 Symposium will attempt to explore all sides of the issue in order to take the industry’s corporate sustainability where it needs to be. 

When:

November 7-8, 2018

Where:

Sheraton on the Falls Hotel
5875 Falls Avenue, Niagara Falls
ON L2G 3K7, Canada
