Valorpneu publishes "Environmental, Economical and Social Balance of Used Tyres Management in Portugal" study

8 Set 2014

After presenting the main conclusions of the study about the "Environmental, Economical and Social Balance of Used Tyres Management in Portugal", Valorpneu has just published the full project's report (download available below), which demonstrates the relevance of SGPU in society.

This study was developed during 2013 by 3Drivers - Engenharia, Inovação e Ambiente, Lda., a consulting company, in partnership with IST - Instituto Superior Técnico and demonstrates the importance of the system managed by Valorpneu, as well as the benefits and the different contributions provided by the used tyres management activity in Portugal.

The study concludes that the SGPU has contributed, in average, with 78 million Euros per year for the national wealth (GVA); it also generated close to 2000 jobs and prevented the emission of 1.5 million tons of CO2-eq. As such, Valorpneu's activities are fully compliant and integrated with the concept of Green Economy: not only do they contribute towards a significant reduction of environmental risks, but they also leverage job creation and produce wealth.
