    20. Natural rubber still a strategic resource for Europe

      The European Tyre and Rubber Manufacturers’ Association (ETRMA) has welcomed the publication of the European Union’s 2020 Communication on Critical Raw Materials, which retains natural rubber (NR) in its list of critical raw materials. NR is the only biotic material to be included on the list, and was included in 2017.

      According to the organization, the tire industry alone absorbs about 76% of all the natural rubber produced globally. Today, there is no substitute for natural rubber from hevea trees that could be used in all current applications. ETRMA states inclusion in the critical raw materials list reconfirms NR’s priority status in EU policy, and the importance of securing fair and sustainable supply of natural rubber for European industry. It also provides further support for ongoing industry research into alternative sources of natural rubber.
