LAGARINHOS, Carlos A. F. and TENORIO, Jorge A. S.. Reverse logistics for post-consumer tires in Brazil. Polímeros [online]. 2013, vol.23, n.1, pp. 49-58. Epub Oct 11, 2012. ISSN 0104-1428. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0104-14282012005000059.
After the CONAMA (National Council for Environment) resolution 258/99, significant improvement occurred in the recycling of tires in Brazil, with technologies being developed for reusing, recycling and energy recovery. In 2009, the CONAMA 416/09 resolution changed the formula for calculating the recycling of tires, to be sold in the replacement market. The main objective in this work is to present the reverse logistics of used tires in Brazil and compare it with the systems already implemented in Japan, Europe and USA. From 1999 to 2010, were recycled 2.44 million tons, corresponding to 487.6 million automotive tires.
