One of the core pillars of Tyre Stewardship Australia is to facilitate the development of markets for Australian tyre-derived product (TDP). TSA has invested over $6.3 million nationally to fund real-world outcomes for TDP. TSA’s market development program has, and continues to, support a wide range of environmentally sound technologies that productively use end-of-life tyres generated in Australia. The Fund aims to deliver products to both well established and emerging end markets that will be able to absorb larger volumes of tyre material over the longer term. A keystone for delivering increased used tyre recovery and end markets, one of TSA’s core strategic goals, rests on helping commercial leads reach a point where they can independently supply large and stable markets with competitive products that contain tyre derived materials:
The initiatives funded by TSA is a testament to the organisation’s deep commitment to drive a comprehensive, national program to significantly increase the development and penetration of TDP in Australia.
