TSA Seeks Research Advisory Committee Members

End of life tyres
Tyre Stewardship Australia (TSA) is looking for qualified industry professionals to submit expressions of interest for joining its research advisory committee.

As part of its program of work to administer the national tyre product stewardship scheme, TSA will use revenue collected through a levy to invest in research and development projects. Its aims are to improve the management of end-of-life tyres in Australia and promote the growth of strong markets for recycled tyre products.

TSA CEO Matt Genever is using LinkedIn to stimulate expressions of interest in the research advisory committee roles. The committee will oversee how this investment is allocated and managed. When formed, it will advise the TSA board on priority areas for research, undertake assessments of funding proposals, and provide expert advice on applications for the Tyre Stewardship Research Fund.

TSA Chairman Gerry Morvell said: “The research advisory committee is a key pillar in our market development strategy. Engaging a panel of expert advisors will not only give the Board the support it needs in making informed investment decisions, but sends a strong signal to our stakeholders about commitment to best practice governance for TSA funding.”

TSA is looking for expressions of interest from professionals who have expertise in areas including:
– internationally-recognised tyre technology, science and research;
– tyre recycling applications, including value-added markets for tyre-derived products;
– waste policy, economics and markets;
– the commercialisation of technology; and
– sector-specific expertise relevant to TSA objectives.

Applications close at 5.00pm on Friday 13 November. For more details contact Market Development Manager Liam O’Keefe on 03 9077 2791 or email
