A new road for end of life tyres

Each year around 50,000 tonnes of used tyres are stockpiled or dumped in Victoria, creating a range of environmental and health risks. Sustainability Victoria is supporting two new research projects as part of a national initiative to develop new markets for end of life tyres. Delivered in partnership with the Tyre Stewardship Association and industry, the projects will explore ways of using tyre-derived product as supplementary material in road construction, helping to support the development of new markets for end of life tyres in Victoria and nationally.
