Understanding carbon emissions and targets to support tyre recovery in Australia

Tyre Stewardship Australia (TSA) and the tyre industry want to minimise emissions and work with the end-of-life tyre (EOLT) sector to better understand their carbon emissions.

TSA has commissioned this report to assist tyre reprocessors, remanufacturers and end-users to better understand carbon emissions and targets, and to support tyre recovery in Australia.

Using tyre-derived product (TDP) or tyre-derived fuel (TDF) may lower carbon emissions in certain applications when compared to fossil-fuel base alternatives, meaning some organisations within the EOLT sector could potentially claim their products create lower emissions when compared to conventional alternatives.

For further information on carbon issues for EOLTs, please contact Dr Linda Mitchell, Science and Innovation Advisor at Tyre Stewardship Australia – getonboard@tyrestewardship.org.au
