In early September 2017, Giovanni Corbetta, managing director of Italy’s Ecopneus SCpA, the nonprofit company for tracking, collecting and processing end-of-life tires (ELT) created by tire manufacturers operating in Italy, visited Eldan Recycling A/S in Denmark. The purpose of the visit was to get an update on tire recycling developments and to discuss how production can be optimized. Eldan’s Managing Director Toni Reftman and Product Manager Bjorn Laursen attended the meeting, with Eldan’s Italian Agent Alessandro Silvestri of NME Srl.
Corbetta also visited Danish tire recycler Imdex A/S to see the new Eldan Tire Cleaning and Washing System in action. The system will improve the quality of end products by removing foreign objects such as stones, sand and snow from the tires in the initial phase of processing, the company says, and will reduce production costs in light of reduced wear on wear parts.
The Eldan Tyre Cleaning and Washing System will be launched at Ecomondo in Rimini, Italy, Nov. 7-10, 2017. The company will be at Stand N71 in Hall 5.
