“The U.K. and Germany follow a free market model, and agencies in both countries claim that their method of approach works,” the association said in a press release. “Elsewhere in Europe, a managed system, in one format or another, is used to deal with ELT (end-of-life tires), with varying degrees of success.”
The 2015 ETRA conference will continue the “Industry to Industry-Business to Business” program from previous years to provide attendees with opportunities for awareness, exposure and market development, the association said in conference publicity.
The event will begin March 25 with a general assembly meeting, welcome reception and gala dinner. This will be followed by two sessions on March 26, “Quantifying Europe's ELT Arisings” and “Market Development,” and two on March 27, “Increasing the Use of Rubber in Urban Environments” and “New Markets.”
