  • Funding Innovative Uses For Scrap Tires

    Many States are cleaning up their stockpiles of scrap tires, but more roll in every day. According to the industry, each person in the United States generates one used tire annually. A number of states like North Carolina and Illinois are providing grants to stimulate markets for products made from scrap tire rubber, while states like Texas and New York are developing new civil engineering ...

  • Rolling out novel scrap tyre solutions

    In 2003, a team of scientists secured a £160 000 (Euro 230 000/US$ 310 000) ‘proof of concept’ award from Scotland’s leading enterprise agency to develop a microbial solution to the problem of scrap tyres. The so-called DART technology involves the use of naturally-occurring desulphurising bacteria isolated at Napier University in Edinburgh, Scotland, to devulcanise the rubber tyres by ...

  • Car and e-scrap recycling: the Chinese experience

    In late November, more than 220 delegates met in China for the World Recycling - Shanghai congress organised by Switzerland-based ICM. Among other issues, the focus fell on latest trends in car and electronics scrap recycling within China itself. Several speakers emphasised that much remains to be done to bring the country into line with standards adopted in other parts of the world. Tighter ...

  • Reusing Recycled Tires: 5 Benefits of Recycled Rubber Retaining Blocks

    According to the Recycled Times, over 300 millions used truck and car tires are accumulated every year. At least 25% of those tires are being put into landfills, which means that every year in the U.S., 75 million tires are taking up space in a landfill when they could be reused for something better. To put this information into perspective, for every three people in the United States, there is ...

  • Old Tires Face the Zero Waste Option

    TIRE PILES and tire fires were a prominent environmental burden 20 years ago, but today's options are cleaner with better economic payback. Recovery and use of rubber as an industrial material are far more valuable than use of these feedstocks as fuel. While the price of energy may have doubled in the past few years, the price of virgin rubber compounds has more than tripled - from 30 cents to 95 ...

  • Tyre aggregate applications in geotechnical and geoenvironmental engineering

    A Tyre Aggregate (TA) is made from scrap/waste rubber tyres. Four types of tyre aggregates are classified, namely the coarse-grained, fine-grained, random and composite tyre aggregates. Applications of these tyre aggregates are varied, but they are often used as geomaterial fills and highway-pavement components. More recently, TA has found application in geoenvironmental engineering. This paper ...

  • Tire Shredders: An Introduction

    How Does a Tire Shredding Machine Work? Tire shredding is a very common way of preparing scrap tires for disposal or recycle. In order to dispose of tires in a landfill, they must be shredded to various sized chips. The size required depends on the state or area you live in. Tire shredding is also used for recycling tires; crumb tire or tire mulch can be reused to create surfaces on ...

  • Tire Shredding: The Best Alternative

    From cars and trucks to planes, tractors, and forklifts, tires are used for a wide variety of vehicles. And those tires don’t last forever. Regardless of how many miles a tire travels, it should not be used longer than ten years past its manufacture date, as the rubber will grow brittle and can crack. This isn’t usually a problem, though, since most tires are replaced within three or ...

  • Pyrolysis as a promising solution to tire disposal

    The problem of solid and liquid waste utilization has a great ecological and economical significance for every developed country in the world. Low-temperature pyrolysis is evaluated as one of the promising solution to the growing disposal problem. Recycling old tires by closed pyrolysis method helps to reduce the quantity of emissions and protect natural resources. As a bonus, if you go about it ...

  • Tire Shredding: Alternatives to Landfills

    For many reasons, whole tires pose a major problem to landfills. The most obvious is the inefficient use of space. The actual rubber of a tire takes up only a small fraction of the space a tire occupies, and the rest of the space is wasted. A less obvious but far more serious problem is that tires may trap methane gasses when buried with other garbage in landfills. When this happens, the tires ...

  • International Tire Recycling Spotlight: Venezuela

    Tire recycling is a serious global concern. Scrap tires take up far too much space, they can spawn devastating tire fires that burn for weeks or even months when stored together in large numbers, and they they leach chemicals into soil and groundwater. Recycling is an absolute necessity, but not easily done. Most developed countries have produced millions of scrap tires (at the very least), and ...

  • Recycling Mining Tires | A Practical Solution to a Giant Problem

    The largest mining tires are nearly 14 feet tall and 5 feet wide. Not only would it dwarf a person, it wouldn’t even fit in a living room. Even off the road (OTR) tires of a more modest variety are typically 9 feet in diameter, made for large, OTR mining vehicles. They’re made to move the earth and must bear both incredible weight and brutal road conditions. The Giant ...

  • How Tire Shredding Protects Wildlife

    One of the most revolutionary inventions in the history of mankind was the wheel, and the best upgrade to that invention was the rubber tire, which overcame the limitations of wooden or metal wheels and made it possible to have smooth rides at fast speeds. However, there is a significant drawback to using rubber tires: eventually, they get too worn out to be useful as tires anymore and have to ...

  • Shredding tyres reduces transportation costs by 75%

    Recycling tyres is one of the fastest-growing business opportunities around the world. The EU, along with other countries around the world and many states in the US have banned tyres from landfills. This means that more and more tyres are being recycled for raw material for new applications, such as ground rubber mulch for playgrounds or rubberised asphalt, or are burned as tyre-derived fuel ...

  • Waste materials are an underused resource the construction of Europe`s roads

    Recycled waste material could play a major role in the construction of roads in Europe, bringing both environmental and economic benefits. A new study proposes a scenario where 50% of the asphalt for Europe's roads consists of recycled materials, leading to significant reductions in costs, energy use and greenhouse gas emissions. According to the European Waste Framework Directive, there is a ...

  • Turning waste into wattage

    How we are helping to meet the growing demand for waste energy recovery It’s a sign of the times that more and more companies and organisations are now looking at ways to capitalise on the waste material their production process produces rather than having to pay a third part to take it away for them.  One reason of course is the high cost of scrappage.  Another is the ...

  • Invention of the Tire Shredder

    The process of vulcanizing rubber was discovered by Charles Goodyear (yes, you read that right) in 1839, and the development of rubber tires followed not long after (Source: Continental Truck). From there, it didn’t take long for worn-out tires to start piling up, and finding good ways to ...
