    In his role as Tire Chapter chair, Dodge will conduct outreach to recycled rubber industry leaders to help support and raise awareness of contributions to safety and environmental applications for the tire recycling and recycled rubber products industries.

    “Sustainable products and processes form the core of what we do at Ecore,” said Dodge, whose company is regarded as a pioneer in developing innovative recycled surfaces and is North America’s largest user of scrap tire rubber. “I am excited to work with ISRI members to build on the association’s vision for protecting and preserving the planet and continuing its mission to promote environmentally responsible products, technologies and services.”

    About Ecore
    Since 1871, Ecore has been transforming reclaimed materials into unique surfaces that make people’s lives better. What started with simple cork closures has evolved into a diverse portfolio of products solving complex problems in applications ranging from playgrounds, weight rooms, and turf fields to hospitals, hotels, and retail environments. Ecore is driven everyday by a simple question, “Can a floor do more?” YES. At Ecore, we create products based on the simple notion that floors should elevate beyond current expectations. Ecore’s energy is focused on the interaction between people and the surface. As a result, we engineer performance well beyond industry standards related to acoustics, ergonomics, and safety. Harvesting the unique power from a myriad of waste streams, Ecore creates products that align substantial force reduction with a balanced amount of energy return to create dynamic surfaces that are catered to the individual and the application.
