What are the benefits of end-of-life tire (ELT) management?

In addition to helping minimize some of the risks associated with the absence of ELT management, good ELT management delivers a range of sustainability benefits, including:

Economic benefits

  • Increased industrial activity (waste collection, tire retreading, tire material and tire-derived fuel (TDF) processing, etc.)
  • Improved infrastructure for cities and regions (deposit, collection, transportation, supply chains, energy supply)
  • Better allocation of funds destined for ELT management to enable long-term planning (e.g., investment in infrastructure and technology, developing new markets)

Social benefits

  • Job creation in ELT-related industries
  • The avoidance of exposure of local communities to potential health or environmental impacts linked to the absence of proper ELT management
  • Better coordination of stakeholders in the value chain (common collection of data, multi-actor awareness campaigns, coordinated treatment of issues, etc.)

Environmental benefits

  • Contribution to the circular economy through a more efficient use of the natural resources associated with tire manufacturing
