The appointment underlines the commitment of both partners to provide the automotive industry with a sustainable solution for the collection and transformation of scrap tyres.
Synthos is pleased to announce that Matteo Marchisio, Business United Director, Synthetic Rubber at Synthos, has been appointed to the Board of Directors Tyre Recycling Solutions (TRS) during the Annual General Meeting on June 29, 2022.
Marchisio spent nearly 20 years successfully working in the rubber industry in various positions before joining Synthos in June 2017 as business unit director, Synthetic Rubber. Marchisio’s extensive experience at one of the world’s leading synthetic rubber manufacturers with a broad portfolio and strong technology roadmap focused on sustainable solutions will benefit TRS in its quest to grow the recycled rubber powder market.
“With many leading tyre manufacturers anticipating upcoming legislative changes in the EU regarding a possible minimum recycled content in tyres, it has become clear that the acceptance of high-quality rubber powder from end-of-life tyres as a viable alternative to virgin material in high performance rubber applications is rapidly increasing,” said Matteo Marchisio, Business Unit Director, Synthos Synthetic Rubber. “I personally believe that innovative companies like Synthos and TRS will lead the market shift toward high-performance material solutions with a smaller environmental footprint, and I am therefore committed to contributing to their long-term success.”
TRS, a successful Swiss scale-up company founded in 2013, is at the centre of a transformation by solving an enormous waste problem. With half of the world’s scrap tyres stockpiled annually, valorisation through recycling is less than 20%. TRS has proprietary, eco-viable and economically lucrative solutions that help the industry solve this problem by adding value to existing players in the recycling chain and offering cost-effective new materials and unique compounding solutions for use in tyres, industrial, construction and footwear applications.
