The Tyre Stewardship Fund is actively supporting a range of new product and market developments across 34 projects, with over $4.9 Million committed to the research and development, and demonstration and implementation of these applications.
From these projects a range of new tyre-derived product applications are reaching commercial opportunity stage. These products range in application from horse racing tracks, local roads, residential concrete slabs and as a composite material which has endless manufacturing possibilities. These are only a sample of the solutions being generated through the Tyre Stewardship Fund.
The range case studies for products developed through the Tyre Stewardship Fund is available here.
Tyre Stewardship Fund
Research funding provided by TSA is dedicated to both early stage research and development projects to later stage demonstration and infrastructure-oriented initiatives. PhD Scholarships are also available for research that meets the objectives of the Scheme for the long-term utilisation of end-of-life tyres.
The objectives of the Tyre Stewardship Research Fund are to:
advance innovative technologies in Australia by supporting focused, collaborative research in high priority technologies;
retain local expertise in, and attract international expertise to, Australia in technologies related to end-of-life tyres;
support the growth of skills and capacity in Australia in technologies related to end-of-life tyres for the domestic and international markets; and
share the results of that research with the wider industry as appropriate whilst respecting intellectual property rights.
To get a better idea of the type of projects TSA is seeking to support through the Fund, please see the previously supported projects here, and Case Studies of recent projects and through detailed information on the funding program here.
