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.
Registration fees are $125 for both days of the conference, or $85 for one day. To register, call 916-278-4433 or 800-858-7743, or go to the online reservation form at the event's website. April 10 is the deadline to register.
Titan International and the United Steelworkers union have petitioned the U.S. International Trade Commission and U.S. Department of Commerce seeking relief from OTR tire imports from China, India and Sri Lanka. What’s your opinion?
|I wholeheartedly support their action – something needs to be done.||
|I think it’s a bad idea that could inevitably tie the hands of domestic tire makers.||
|I oppose any duties against tire importers—they only raise costs for distributors and make it harder to obtain inventory.||
|I’m kind of on the fence and not sure what’s right, but need more information before deciding.||
|I don’t really care whether or not relief is granted.||
