  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Shredding tyres stops zika virus breeding

    Zika is a dangerous disease threatening millions of people today in southern hemisphere. It is spread mostly by the bite of an infected Aedes species mosquito (Ae. aegypti and Ae. albopictus). These mosquitoes bite during the day and night. Once you get bitten it is too late to do much but what is important is to prevent this mosquito from breeding. Mosquitos typically lay eggs near water because ...

  • Development of downflow hanging sponge (DHS) reactor as post treatment of existing combined anaerobic tank treating natural rubber processing wastewater

    Conventional aerated tank technology is widely applied for post treatment of natural rubber processing wastewater in Southeast Asia; however, a long hydraulic retention time (HRT) is required and the effluent standards are exceeded. In this study, a downflow hanging sponge (DHS) reactor was installed as post treatment of anaerobic tank effluent in a natural rubber factory in South Vietnam and ...

  • Impact of aluminum chloride on process performance and microbial community structure of granular sludge in an upflow anaerobic sludge blanket reactor for natural rubber processing wastewater treatment

    In this study, granular sludge formation was carried out using an aluminum chloride supplement in an upflow anaerobic sludge blanket (UASB) reactor treating natural rubber processing wastewater. Results show that during the first 75 days after the start-up of the UASB reactor with an organic loading rate (OLR) of 2.65 kg-COD·m−3·day−1, it performed stably with a removal of 90% of the ...

  • Treatment of natural rubber processing wastewater using a combination system of a two-stage up-flow anaerobic sludge blanket and down-flow hanging sponge system

    A pilot-scale experiment of natural rubber processing wastewater treatment was conducted using a combination system consisting of a two-stage up-flow anaerobic sludge blanket (UASB) and a down-flow hanging sponge (DHS) reactor for more than 10 months. The system achieved a chemical oxygen demand (COD) removal efficiency of 95.7% ± 1.3% at an organic loading rate of 0.8 kgCOD/(m3.d). Bacterial ...

  • The effects of conversion of tropical rainforest to rubber plantation on splash erosion in Xishuangbanna, SW China

    The Xishuangbanna (SW China) landscape has changed dramatically during the past three decades due to the conversion of tropical rainforest to rubber plantations. This study characterized the influence of conversion of tropical rainforest to rubber plantation on potential splash erosion rate and actual splash erosion rate. The average potential splash erosion rate was 2.1 times higher in the ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...
