OUR PILLARS

Safety
Safety is the tire industry’s top priority. We are committed to making tires that make driving easier, safer, smarter and more sustainable. Tire manufacturers are in constant pursuit of excellence by inventing new ways to design and engineer tires. Tires today are much safer and better performing than the tires from a few decades ago. The most recent government data analysis showed tire-related crashes decreased by over 50% between 2007 and 2010.

Sustainability
From environmental stewardship to workplace safety to corporate social responsibility, USTMA members are committed to continuous improvement. USTMA members have reduced energy use and greenhouse gas emissions and are incorporating sustainable and biogenic materials in tire manufacturing. USTMA is a leader in advocating strong scrap tire laws that have reduced stockpiled tires by 93% nationwide while nearly 90% of scrap tires are consumed in end use markets.

Economy
Tire manufacturing helps keep the American economy moving. U.S. tire makers employ nearly 100,000 people in our country, including factory workers and highly skilled scientists, engineers and others. Tires are always in demand, which makes tire manufacturing the kind of steady, robust industry our communities can count on in this changing economy.

Innovation
Tires are the only part of a car that touches the road and that connection is critically important to keeping the American economy moving and the driving public safe. The tire manufacturing industry has invested billions of dollars in improving tires so they are significantly safer and more sustainable than just a few decades ago – and they’re only getting better.

Recycling Of Used Tires- Tire Derived Fuel Is It A Scam For Fees


August 5,2019-Used Tire News-Usedtires.com-Deerfield Beach, Fl-Used Tire recycling and fee collecting is it a scam? The fact of the matter is tire manufacturers should be held to cradle to grave recycling by law. The makers of tires have sold the public a bill of goods as to the effectiveness and environmentally safe destruction of tires by burning with coal. How many people have their hands in the till collecting scrap tire fees? Where is all of this money going? If you check out your invoices when buying tires itis confusing at best what the consumer is paying and to whom for tire disposal.
The tire industry taught the cement industry how to “monetize” scrap tires for fuel. They created Tire Derived Fuel for a tipping fee. For cement makers, it was a win-win they make money and save on the cost of coal to run their kilns. The bill of good sold by tire makers that tires are burning hotter and cleaner than coal does not say much. Tires burning j the kilns emit plenty of toxins also, just like coal. America is burning nearly 150 million scrap tires a year, but not really clean tire to energy as they would like you to believe.fact is Goodyear Bridgestone/Firestone Pirelli they are the ones that should be handling the worldwide scrap tire issue, yes scrap tires are still a problem.

Has the tire industry sold the world a bill of goods just so they can cheaply discard of 150 million-plus scrap tires every year in an environmentally unsound and polluting way? Well if you take a look at tires being burned in cement kilns you may begin to question other than the cement company saving money as well as the cheap disposal method for the tire dealer who else is benefitting. Certainly, environmentalists have been questioning the Tires burn cleaner and hotter than coal. Really who said coal burned clean? The truth- the dirty truth is that tire manufacturers need to be held to “cradle to grave” recycling if we are ever going to really solve the scrap tire problem. Burning tires in kilns is at best a short term solution of what to do with them as opposed to a really good for the environment solution.
