OTR Tires Circular Challenge


Deadline 06/10/2023

Closing Time 4:00 pm

In order to promote a space for articulation between companies interested in promoting the circular economy from this sector, SOFOFA Hub and CESCO (Center for Copper and Mining Studies) have created the Circular Economy Committee for Mining which is currently formed by representatives of Anglo American, Codelco, Antofagasta Minerals, Teck, the Chilean Mining Ministry, Collahuasi and SQM.   

The initiative has three subcommittees that articulate specific projects to advance the transition from specific by-products of this sector: the Copper Slag Subcommittee, the Mining Tailings Subcommittee and the Off-the-Road (OTR) tires Subcommittee.   

In this context, and with the purpose of improving sustainability and enabling the transition to greener mining industry, the Off-the-Road (OTR) Tires Subcommittee, led by Codelco, with the support of Fundación Chile’s Expande, has launched “OTR Tires Circular Challenge”, a global open innovation call that seeks to identify new applications for the by-products generated from OTR treatment.
