About Valorpneu


Valorpneu was initially licensed to operate on the Portuguese Mainland on October the 7th, 2002, by the Ministries of Economy and Cities, Land Management and Environment, as the managing entity of the SGPU - Sistema Integrado de Gestão de Pneus Usados (Used Tyres Management Integrated System). The system went live in the Portuguese Mainland on February the 1st, 2003.

In January 2006, the society obtained a licensing extension to the Autonomous Region of Madeira, granted by the Environment Regional Division of Madeira.  In April 2006, in a joint decision by the Regional Secretary of the Environment and the Sea and the Regional Secretary of Economy, its license was extended to include the Autonomous Region of the Azores. The system went live in both autonomous regions on May the 1st, 2006.

This first licensing period, which was due to end in 5 years time, on October the 7th, 2007, was prorrogated for one more year, while waiting for a new license.

On December the 4th, 2008, a new license was granted to Valorpneu, with effects from October the 7th, 2008.

This second licensing period ended on December 31, 2013, and so the license was prorrogated on June 24, 2014 with effect from 1 January 2014.
