SACRAMENTO, Calif. (Jan. 10, 2014) — "California's Tire Program: Rolling Into the Future" is the title of the 2014 Tire Conference to be hosted by the California Department of Resources Recovery and Recycling (CalRecycle) April 23-24.
Scheduled for the Capitol Plaza Holiday Inn in Sacramento, the conference is designed for waste tire processors, manufacturers of tire-derived products and anyone else interested in scrap tire recycling in California, CalRecycle said.
Topics to be discussed at the two-day meeting include an update on California's scrap tire markets and waste tire law enforcement; CalRecycle's grant programs for the in-state use of tire-derived products including rubberized asphalt and tire-derived aggregate; developing new tire-derived products; and an update on synthetic turf.

When is the last time you attended one of the national tire industry trade shows, such as SEMA, ITEC or the North American Tire & Retread Expo?
|I try and take in at least one show a year.||
|I usually attend one every few years.||
|There are so many tire maker and distributor meetings each year, I don’t see a need to attend one of the national shows.||
|I don’t find value in these shows and haven’t been to one in years.||
|I’d like to but I am too busy||
