Arthur Dodge, III, CEO and president of Ecore International, has been elected director of the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI) and chairman of ISRI’s Tire Chapter. ISRI, a nonprofit trade association consisting of more than 1,600 private and public for-profit companies, promotes public awareness of the value and importance of recycling in the production of goods and services worldwide.
As ISRI director, Dodge will participate in national policy discussions related to recycling industry domestic and international trade and help support the promotion of recycling industries’ contribution to a cleaner and healthier planet.
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, in a statement. “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.”
Dodge was elected to both positions at the recent ISRI 2018 Convention & Exposition and will serve two-year terms.
