General Meeting 2011 in Palermo

The 49th general meeting of AIRP (Italian Retreaders' Association) will take place on 7 and 8 October against the splendid backdrop of the capital city of Sicily. This year, the meeting will have a particularly important role given that it coincides with a series of significant events in the tyre world, and it will have a different format with the main focus on two major subjects.
The first is the coming into force of the actuation decree for art. 228 of the Environmental Code, which revolutionizes, also philosophically, the disposal of end-of-life tyres and entails careful analyses also by retreaders. Although retreaded tyres are exempt from the application of the ecological contribution provided for by the Decree, this sector must also deal with the requirement to implement the new and complex system.
The second major subject is profitability. Retreading represents a major part of revenues in professional segments, which are still affected by a series of issues that are not limited to figures, but range from customer solvency to the continual increase in the cost of raw materials. A multifaceted subject that will be handled with the help of experts.
