It seems yesterday when we started working, in 2016, on an ambitious research project aimed to shake the pattern of end-of-life tire recycling.

The spark came from our President, Florinda Martena, as she drew the theoretical basis of the project and -given the outstanding value of the design- presented it to the European research and innovation programme “Horizon 2020”. The proposal received high ratings in terms of impact, efficiency of implementation, quality and capacity: thus, Electronic Systems project “REW-TYRES” took place.

During the following 3 years, we carried out the various activities internally: it has been a challenging endeavor, and conclusively we over-achieved every task that we had set. The functioning prototypes of REWORK and RECYCLES are more-than-tangible outcomes of our research project.

With respectful satisfaction, we would like to share the accolade that we received for project REW-TYRES: this month, the European Commission selected our project as one of the “today’s cutting-edge research” and highlighted it on the website dedicated to Research and Development.
