German ELT supply chain is an indepth report about the German end-of-life-tire market and supply chain.

According to ETRMA, in 2019 an estimated volume of almost 3,6 million tons of end- of-life-tires (“ELTs”) arose in the EU27, UK, Norway, Switzerland, Serbia and Turkey. The 2019 figures of European ELT recycling routes average 96% treatment, 61% material recovery and 35% thermal recovery. Within the ETRMA scope, Germany is the biggest ELT market and, because of its “free market” policy, also the most obscure ELT market.

This report analyses the German ELT supply chain and aims to provide the market data and the market understanding required for securing ELT feedstocks in Germany. The report is written for investors, analysts and entrepreneurs planning to operate a tire recyccling company in Germany.
