TSA Funding Overview

Tyre Stewardship Australia (TSA) is set up to enhance outcomes associated with disposal of end-of-life tyres in Australia. A key priority for TSA is to facilitate the development of markets for Australian tyre-derived product (TDP).

Intent of The Fund

The intent of the fund is to enable local market and product development initiatives that demonstrate value of new and enhanced applications for TDP. The challenge is to create economically viable products that use TDP’s in enough volume to consume the amount of waste tyres Australia generates annually whilst competing with conventional products. Our aim is to support initiatives that bring together strong partnerships across the supply chain, crossing research institutions and industry partners, to demonstrate both the technical and financial viability of products.

Investment for the Future

To minimise the environmental, health and safety impacts of end-of-life tyres, Australia needs diverse and sustainable markets for tyre-derived products. The Tyre Stewardship Fund (The Fund) is delivered in two streams, Projects and Scholarships, to ensure the viability of the investments in emerging technologies through varied applications. TSA has also played an active role in the delivery of further market development activities:

  • Joint technical training course for engineers and road practitioners, facilitated through the Australian Asphalt Pavement Association, and
  • Independent assessment of emerging thermal processing technologies, pyrolysis and gasification, to better inform stakeholders
