ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the prospects of the new European Union (EU) directive where non-labelled oils have to replace high-aromatic oils. It is stated that the EU directive causes additional pressure on raw material costs as non-labelled tire oils are highly refined products compared to high-aromatic oils. It is stated that the tire and polymer industry need to decide on their replacement strategy to be ready for the final phase out of aromatic oils.
