Chile to decide on manufacturer liability requirements – will increase the need for material recovery technologies

Over the next month, Chile will be deciding on how to roll out its environmental ministry’s implementation of its 2016 Manufacturer Liability Act. The statute's entry into force may lead to increased interest in establishing Enviro’s technology in Chile.

For us who’re offering recovered materials, this is a very specific opportunity to provide solutions to the very actors who – going forward – will need to prove that they’re complying with regulatory requirements and who report on how they are recycling tyres sustainably,” says Thomas Sörensson, CEO of Enviro.

Enviro has been active in Chile for several years. It even participated in drafting the Manufacturer Liability Act. The manufacturer liability system that is currently being decided covers most types of vehicle tyres, including mining tyres.

“In our assessment, for the mining industry, this will result in a number of requirements for markets with extensive mining operations. Historically, manufacturer liability laws have had a very positive effect on tyre recycling rates and sharpened the industry’s focus on recovered materials. We're accompanying this all the way up to the gate, so that when it opens our technology will be first in line as an obvious choice.”

About Us

Enviro is a company developing, building and operating industrial plants for material recovery from End of Life Tyres (ELT). The company has developed a process, based on a patented technology, where gas generated in the process is heating the tyres in absence of oxygen. This enables the materials in the tyres to decompose and be recovered instead of incinerated. Thus, a sustainable recovery of the resources Carbon black, Oil, Steel and Gas is obtained. The products are used in new products, replacing fossil resources to help the customers reach their sustainability targets. Enviro was founded in 2001, has its head office in Gothenburg and runs its own plant for ELT tyres in Åsensbruk, Sweden. The company is listed on the Nasdaq First North securities exchange with Mangold Fondkommission AB, tel. +46 (0)8 5030 1550,, as its Certified Advisor.
