Tire Recycling

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency reports 290 million scrap tires were generated in 2003. Of the 290 million, 45 million of these scrap tires were used to make automotive and truck tire re-treads. With landfills minimizing their acceptance of whole tires and the health and environmental risks of stockpiling tires, many new markets have been created for scrap tires.

The Tire Recycling Supply Chain is divided into three stages:

  1. Collection and processing stage; sorted into four operations: whole tires, stamped (cut) tires, chipped (shredded) tires, and ground (crumb) rubber.
  2. Tire-derived products stage; this involves the production of alternate products for sale.
  3. Distribution and demand stage; in order to create new products, companies are more likely to merge or link with distributors and retailers to ensure product sales and satisfy customers.

Global Resource Corp.

"290 Million tires are recycled annually in the USA our goal is to clean up all tire dumps".

Global Resource uses a microwave frequency technology to bombard the tires, which causes the "cracking" of the hydrocarbon chain. As a result, the hydrocarbon components in the tires are gasified. The natural gas is then collected, and the remaining gases are converted into oil.
