The International Tire Exhibition & Conference (ITEC) will feature a half-day interactive workshop called "Recycling and Retreading Bring Value To The Tire Industry," on Sept. 20.
The biennial trade show and conference will be held Sept. 21-23 at the I-X Center in Cleveland.

The workshop, which will be moderated by Denise Kennedy, founder and president of DK Enterprises, will cover the progression of the tire recycling industry and explore what new markets mean for manufacturers, dealers, distributors, suppliers and other recyclers.

The session will address the challenges and opportunities tire recyclers and retreaders face to maintain their economic foothold, consistency in quality and quantity of raw materials and demand for finished goods. It will discuss how creating markets are vital to the overall health of the tire industry and how changes in new tire compounds, materials, construction and design impact scrap tire processing and recycled rubber markets.
