Tyre Stewardship Australia releases report about end-of-life tyres supply chain
In late June 2020, Tyre Stewardship Australia (TSA) has released a report which it referred to as “the most comprehensive piece of research conducted into the end-of-life tyre market since the 2017 National Market Development Strategy for Used Tyres.”
TSA’s research combines material flow analysis data with TSA participant reports to provide a complete picture on the fate of all tyres: passenger, truck and off-the-road.
The Stewardship reports that one of the key gaps identified in the last study was that around 60 to 65 per cent of all waste tyres generated were disposed to landfill or other fates like dumping or illegal stockpiling, with little verifiable data to specifically quantify each fate. The report addresses that, and according to TSA CEO Lina Goodman, supports TSA’s role as an information hub, thought leader and provider of rigorous, independent data for the resource recovery sector in Australia.
The report, "Used Tyres Supply Chain and Fate Analysis", is one of the biggest research pieces providing an up-to-date data set on end-of-life tyre arisings in Australia to date.

The report provides a strong foundation to the objectives recently launched by TSA in their 2020-23 Strategy Plan, notably continuing to improve data and information on all used tyre fates, both in Australia and overseas.
