References Tyre recycling Used tyres are among the largest and most problematic sources of waste today, due to the large volume produced and their durability. The same characteristics which make waste tyres a waste problem also make them one of the most re-used waste materials.
EPAit is stated that markets "both recycling and beneficial use" existed for Entire homes can be built with whole tires by ramming them full of earth and covering them with concrete, known as earthships. They are used in civil engineering applications such as sub-grade fill and embankments, back-fill for walls and bridge abutments, sub-grade insulation for roads, landfill projects, and septic system drain fields.
Tires are also bound together and used as different types of barriers such as: Artificial reefs are built using tires that are bonded together in groups, there is some controversy on how effective tires are as an artificial reef system, an example is The Osborne Tyre recycling Project which has become an environmental nightmare that will cost millions of dollars to rectify.
The process of stamping and cutting tires is used in some apparel products, such as sandals and as a road sub-base, by connecting together the cut sidewalls to form a flexible net. The markets predicted by the report were: TDA can be used as a back-fill for retaining walls, fill for landfill gas trench collection wells, back-fill for roadway landslide repair projects as well as a vibration damping material for railway lines.
Ground and crumb rubber, also known as size-reduced rubber, can be used in both paving type projects and in mold-able products. These types of paving are: The rubber can be molded with plastic for products like pallets and railroad ties.
Athletic and recreational areas can also be paved with the shock absorbing rubber-molded material. Rubber from tires is sometimes ground into medium-sized chunks and used as rubber mulch.
Rubber crumb can also be used as an infill, alone or blended with coarse sand, as in infill for grass-like synthetic turf products such as Field-turf. Steel mills can use tires as a carbon source, replacing coal or coke in steel manufacturing.
Tire pyrolysis[ edit ] The pyrolysis method for recycling used tires is a technique which heats whole or shredded tires in a reactor vessel containing an oxygen-free atmosphere. In the reactor the rubber is softened after which the rubber polymers break down into smaller molecules.
These smaller molecules eventually vaporize and exit from the reactor. These vapors can be burned directly to produce power or condensed into an oily type liquid, generally used as a fuel.
Some molecules are too small to condense. They remain as a gas which can be burned as fuel. When performed properly, the tire pyrolysis process is a clean operation and produces little emissions or waste, however, concerns about air pollution due to incomplete combustion as is the case with tire fires have been documented.
For instance whole tires contain fibers and steel. Shredded tires have most of the steel and sometimes most of the fiber removed. Processes can be either batch or continuous.
The energy required to drive the decomposition of the rubber include using directly fired fuel like a gas ovenelectrical induction like an electrically heated oven or by microwaves like a microwave oven.
Sometimes a catalyst is used to accelerate the decomposition.Welcome to Unipex Tyre Recycling Established in , we are a tyre recycling company that takes great pride in assisting our customers in disposing of all waste tyres.
