About the Conference


Scrap Tire Markets in a Sustainable Circular Economy

The Scrap Tire Research and Education Foundation, Inc. (STREF), the U.S. Tire Manufacturers Association (USTMA) and the South Carolina Department of Commerce are proud to host the 8th Scrap Tire Recycling Conference on December 4-5, 2019 in Greenville, South Carolina.

As the scrap tire industry’s premier market development and emerging trends conference, the 8th Scrap Tire Recycling Conference offers a valuable opportunity for industry leaders, regulators and stakeholders to review key developments in scrap tire management.  This year, we will explore emerging trends in circular economy and scrap tires, and explore challenges and opportunities for existing and potential markets for scrap tires including: rubber modified asphalt, micronized rubber powder, tire-derived fuel, civil engineering markets and emerging markets like pyrolysis and devulcanization.

The Scrap Tire Recycling Conference has been the scrap tire industry's top event for the past decade. Make your plans now to join hundreds of your colleagues in Greenville, SC, to discuss the important scrap tire issues facing the industry.
