Introducing the most ecological road

 

WHAT IS SIGNUS?

 

SIGNUS Ecovalor is a non-profit company established in May 2006 by the main tyre manufacturers to serve as a mechanism to allow all makers and importers (producers) wishing to do so to meet their obligations under Royal Decree 1619/2005.

 

WHAT ARE ITS MISSIONS?

 

The missions of SIGNUS are to guarantee adequate treatment of used tyres from the moment of generation until they cease being waste and become a material with value and to maximise this value by developing new applications and new markets.

 

HOW IS THE SYSTEM FUNDED?


Through the ECOVALOR recycling fee paid by producers (affiliated members) to SIGNUS to ensure correct environmental management of a used tyre when it is replaced with a new one on a vehicle. The fee is passed on by producers and distributors throughout the value chain to the end user.

Any company that places replacement tyres on the Spanish market (producers) can join SIGNUS as an affiliated company.
