The Recycling and Economic Development Initiative of South Africa (Redisa) has appointed Continental SA sales director Eddie Jordaan and Alliance Tyre Africa MD Piet Swart as senior officials with effect from September 1.

Jordaan, who had about 43 years’ experience in the South African tyre industry, would be responsible for the roll-out and implementation of Redisa’s Integrated Industry Waste Tyre Management Plan (IIWTMP), as legislated by the Department of Environmental Affairs (DEA).

“One thing that all role players agree on is that South Africa needs to dispose of waste tyres in a responsible way. The Redisa plan does exactly what is necessary…I am excited to be involved with the next chapter when new changes emanating from our industry will positively affect local communities and the country as a whole,” he enthused.

Meanwhile, Swart would head Redisa’s recycling technology division. “I am joining Redisa because this is what I believe in. For me, the role will be hugely challenging but most importantly, fulfilling.”

Prior to joining Alliance Tyre Africa, Swart worked at Continental Tyres for 27 years. He was a founding member of the South African Tyre Recycling Process Company and served on the board.

BACKGROUND

Water and Environmental Affairs Minister Edna Molewa gazetted the draft IIWTMP for further public comment in May.

After initially being approved in November, the plan was withdrawn in January, overshadowed by concerns expressed by industry members regarding the consultation process.

Redisa called for comments between January and February, which were considered and compiled into a document that was submitted, along with the plan, to the DEA in February.

The department stated that the reworked IIWTMP was substantially similar to the version approved in November. However, clarifications and procedural amendments were included in line with suggestions by tyre manufacturers and importers.
