Scotland introduces a new partnership that would encourage entrepreneurs to come up with sustainable business initiatives for used tires within the next five years. Simultaneously, the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) is going to take responsibility for development of a sector plan that will outline problems and goals pertaining to used tires, illegal dumping included, and define clear ways to tackle them.

To find new opportunities for commercial projects from scrap tires, Entrepreneurial Scotland is determined to collaborate with the Saltire Fellowship business improvement plan. The agency claims that close collaboration with entrepreneurs and business projects can drastically improve SEPA’s methods of regulation.

James Stuart, managing director of Entrepreneurial Scotland, said that Saltire Fellows are worthy candidates to work with on this issue. He explained that during the following months, their team will elaborate on business ideas at Babson College in Boston (USA); these business approaches will be conducive to development of effective solutions to deal with the used tires and problems they cause.

SEPA informed before that acrosome 100 tires end up as waste every 15 minutes in Scotland.
