Aliapur is the sector of reference for recycling end-of-life tyres. It is a company that was created in 2003 and its founding members, who have equel shares, are Bridgestone, Continental, Goodyear, Michelin and Pirelli. Our shareholders are also our first clients.
We operate as an eco-company and provide, on behalf of our 355 clients, a general interest mission that is defined and included in the French Environmental Code.
Aliapur’s clients finance these operations thanks to an eco-tax paid for each tyre that requires processing (€1.18 excl. VAT for passenger vehicle tyres in 2019). The company does not receive a cent of public money.
At least 370,000 tonnes of end-of-life tyres will be dealt with in 2019, or the equivalent of near to 47 million passenger vehicle tyres. This represents 80% of the total volume to be processed annually in France.
