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 hosting the 8th Scrap Tire Recycling Conference on December 4 & 5, 2019 in Greenville, South Carolina.

A lot has changed in the last two years, and this conference gives industry participants the best possible chance to get all the latest information, network with peers, and develop collaboration opportunities with colleagues. South Carolina is the center of the tire manufacturing industry today and that industry is changing. Recyclers and state recycling programs need to stay ahead of the trends and this conference will help them do so. 

Topics to be discussed will be non-commercial and include reviews of existing and potential markets for scrap tires. These include Tire Derived Fuel, ground rubber markets, civil engineering markets, and others like pyrolysis, plastics and especially rubber modified asphalt.

Register for the event


Information about the Conference Agenda will be available soon.
