Tire Scrap Problem is Becoming Urgent…

Nowadays, whether in developed or developing country, more and more individuals or families choose to buy a car or more because of the improved economic ability and cheaper price of the vehicle. Correspondingly, tire scrap has been increasing greatly. Worldwide more than 3 billion tires are dumped every year. In the USA, tires are scrapped at a rate of 1.1 tire/person/year leading to over 300 million tires scrapped per year. The condition in other developed countries is not far better. In Canada, about 26 million tires are sold each year and equivalent number is generated as used tires. Every day in UK, over 100,000 worn tyres are taken off cars, vans and trucks. In China, over ten millions of tire scrap is generated every year. We can vividly feel it from the world’s biggest tyre graveyard in Kuwaiti.

What are the present recycling ways? Generally speaking, there are three main ways to recycle tire scrap, that is, tire-derived fuel, ground rubber application and civil engineering. In the first application, burning tires release a compound, namely pyroloytic oil, which can be used as a cleaner and more economical alternative to coal as fuel in paper mills, industrial boiler,etc. Ground rubber application include new rubber products, playground and other sports surfacing and rubber -modified asphalt. As for civil engineering, these tire scrap are usually shred and then used in road and landfill construction, septic tank leach fields, etc.

Among these three ways, even though incineration can help to reduce dependence on fossil fuels and keep scrap tires out of landfills. It is far from ideal because of its inefficiency and emission problem.Compared with the other applications, tire crumb is better at present.
