Richard 'Dick' Gust Named To U.S. Environmental Advisory Group

TIA’s Dick Gust Named to US Environmental Advisory Group

This will be Gust's second time on the U.S. DOC's Environmental Technologies Trade Advisory Committee.

Tire Industry Association (TIA) CEO Richard “Dick” Gust has been appointed for a second time to serve on the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Environmental Technologies Trade Advisory Committee (ETTAC).

Gust will represent TIA and the waste management and recycling segment of the U.S. environmental technology industry on the committee.

U.S. Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo informed Gust of his new appointment, which took effect immediately, in a letter dated Feb. 1, 2023. The appointment will run through Aug. 12, 2024, when the committee’s current charter expires. Gust’s previous appointment to the committee began in May 2021. 

The committee’s role is to provide consensus advice on the development and administration of programs to expand U.S. exports of environmental technologies, goods and services, and products that comply with U.S. environmental, safety and related requirements, Raimondo said.

Gust was appointed TIA CEO, the top staff position, on Jan. 1, 2022. He previously served the association as president in 2005 and was a former long-time board member. 

Well known in the scrap tire field, Gust joined TIA from Liberty Tire Recycling where he served as director of government affairs and president of national account sales. He also is a past president of Lakin Environmental Industries overseeing operations involving tire retreading, remanufacturing, scrap tire collections and scrap tire processing. 

“I am honored to again be appointed to this important committee and to represent TIA, our members and the tire recycling industry,” Gust said.
