Tyre Stewardship Australia (TSA) is a not for profit company, formed with Government support and approved by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission, to lead a national scheme to promote recycling for the 56 million used tyres that are discarded each year.
It represents most facets of the tyre supply chain, including retailers, manufacturers, fleets, recyclers and collectors. It works to increase the environmentally sustainable collection and recycling of used tyres, and explore and promote new uses for and products using recycled end-of-life tyres.
Tyre Stewardship Australia has invested over $3 million in research and development through the Tyre Stewardship Research Fund, and has conducted campaigns to increase awareness and improve recovery.
TSA already has research relationships with a number of Universities, including the University of Melbourne, Swinburne University, UNSW, University of Wollongong, University of South Australia, and Monash University. The new products created include innovative permeable pavement materials, composite pipes, mine explosives, railway track stabilisation materials, rubber-concrete products and thermal processing for fuel and other materials.
TSA are interested in developing relationships with other BHERT members to look at opportunities to support further research and development into the utilisation of tyre-derived rubber products. Find out more about the TSA research fund.
