In the context of the “Circular Economy Stakeholder Conference: Together for a cleaner and more competitive Europe” running on 3-4 November 2020, ETRMA joins forces to bring further the EU Commission commitment to scope, during 2020-2021, the development of possible further Unionwide end-of-waste (EoW) and by-product criteria (BP).
This scoping exercise will help the Commission to make informed decisions on the need to adopt EU-wide EoW and/or BP criteria. Under a circular economy perspective, such harmonized criteria would allow by-products from production processes to be widely recognized in the Union as nonwaste and, facilitate its use in the economy. It would also allow waste to be recovered and widely recognized in the Union as a safe and high quality secondary raw material at the level to compete with raw materials and free to be shipped over the Member States’ borders with minimum administrative burdens.
Waste Reduction Week in Canada focuses on the principles of circular economy, resource efficiency, and waste reduction. The program’s primary purpose is to celebrate environmental efforts and achievements while encouraging new innovative ideas and solutions. The celebratory nature of the campaign is what motivates learning and behaviour change.
Each day of Waste Reduction Week and its associated theme is presented through the lens of its contribution to advancing a Circular Economy. The theme days provide an opportunity to educate what is meant by the Circular Economy as each theme has its own story to tell.
Globally, the tire industry lights the way forward to sustainable models of material creation, sourcing, use, recovery, reuse, remanufacturing and environmental protection, and in Canada today, tire recycling has become an industry with well-established markets and innovative technologies, and leading tire manufacturers are sending a strong message to the public and industry by publicly declaring sustainability targets and measures to improve environmental performance of their products.
The Resource Productivity and Recovery Authority has released its 2021 Business Plan, which outlines the Authority’s planned activities and budgets for the next three years.

Officially funded by the EU in May 2020, the BlackCycle partners are pleased to announce the launch of the project today. The BlackCycle project involves 13 organisations1 in a unique European public-private partnership that will demonstrate the technical, environmental, and economic viability of world-first circular processes. The consortium will develop specific solutions to produce sustainable raw materials for tyres: ELT collection and feedstock selection, pyrolysis2 optimisation, oil refining and valorisation, furnace process optimisation, and sustainable tyre performance assessment. As early as 5-6 years after the project, close to 1 out of every 2 European ELTs will be incorporated into the only virtuous cycle of this magnitude amongst all industrial sectors for the recovery of end of life products.
Ludwigshafen, Germany and Budapest, Hungary – September 1, 2020 – BASF SE (“BASF”) signed an uptake supply agreement with New Energy, a technology company specialized in the pyrolysis of waste tires, headquartered in Budapest, Hungary. According to the agreement, New Energy will supply BASF with up to 4,000 metric tons of pyrolysis oil per year derived from waste tires. In a pilot phase, first volumes of the pyrolysis oil have already been utilized successfully in BASF’s integrated chemical production site (Verbund) in Ludwigshafen, Germany.
The top entries for the inaugural staging of ERJ’s new Elastomers for Sustainability initiative has now been decided by our judging panel led by leading experts in the field of polymer science & technology.
E4S is an industry-first sustainability initiative, designed to highlight significant advances for end-user sectors including automotive, tires, automotive components, construction, consumer, industrial and medical.
The European new Green Deal is in line with a vision for a Circular Economy that the tyre industry has been pioneering for decades. Europe, the largest net importer of natural resources in the world, loses 95% of the material value during the first use cycle. By using the resources we already have, we can decouple the European economy from the need of new resources. The recycling of tyres is recognized for its success with over 95% collection rate and a 62% material recovery rate.
