I would apreciate if someone could help about topics related with the consideration of Valuation of End of Use Tires.
We are working on pirolisis proces and suprise that there is some kind of walls agains it! Is there any document that it must be considered Energy Valorization?
We recover main elements from tires, so we obtain products that can be reuse widely!
We have been carring CO2 footprint and compared with other traditional uses of ELT this tchnology has better results. Do you have documents related?
Considering the Beste Technology Available, wy we have so much barriers and there is only visibility for the traditional methods, semmeng like technology do not move!
I will pareciate to have as much information and possibility to collaborate.
Thanks in advance

Dear Juancar,
From what you described in your request I understand that you have specific questions about legislation concerning the recycling of tires.

Please be aware that European environmental legislation is beyond the Agency’s working remit. The EEA neither sets nor enforces environmental policies.

It is the EU Commission, which has the responsibility of making new legislative proposals. These proposals are then adopted by the Council and the Parliament, and implemented in the Member States by the national authorities. The Commission has the responsibility of overseeing that Member States act in accordance with EU law. The role of the EEA is simply to supply all parties concerned with relevant environmental information.

The “Summaries of EU legislation” website presents the main aspects of EU legislation in a concise, easy-to-read and unbiased way. You can find the section on environmental legislation at: http://europa.eu/[…]/index_en.htm

The European Commission is divided into 36 Directorate Generals (DGs). The Directorate General for the Environment (DG Environment) is the branch of the Commission responsible for European environmental policy and legislation. The homepage of the DG Environment is located at: http://ec.europa.eu/environment/

If the above mentioned websites do not provide you with sufficient information, you may also contact DG Environment directly. Relevant contact details can be viewed at:
National authorities: Since the individual countries are responsible for implementing EU policies, you may find it useful to contact the responsible national authorities in the countries of your interest. For practical examples on how EU legislation is implemented into national law, I suggest that you contact the national authorities in the countries of your interest. Relevant contact links to European national authorities can be obtained at:
