There are an estimated 900 million cars and commercial vehicles in use worldwide, with almost 1 billion units being added to that number every year.
The explosive growth in the automobile sector in recent decades has been accompanied by a substantial increase in volume of end-of-life tyres.
Significant developments by the recycling industry can now guarantee the adequate recovery of the millions of tyres that are disposed of daily.
Mainly composed of rubber, textiles and steel, tyres are an ideal product for recycling.
Recycling tyres translates into lower energy consumption, a reduction in emissions and most importantly, a reduction in the amount of raw rubber needed for manufacturing which ultimately contributes to preserve natural resources like crude oil.
Tyres are built to last. However, the very same properties that make them durable also make them difficult to break down. Disposing of tyres in landfills or stockpiles can cause severe environmental and health concerns:
In civil engineering works, shredded tyres are used as filling to stabilise weak soil and also as insulation for roads, walls and bridge abutments, shredded tyres for cicvil engineering are supplied to PAS107 specification.
