Types of еnd-of-life tires
WASTE TIRES FROM CARS,
WASTE TIRES FROM CONSTRUCTION,
WASTE TIRES FROM BICYCLES,
MOPEDS AND MOTORCYCLES
The process of recycling еnd-of-life
tires includes the following operations:
Upon acceptance at the site, end-of-life tires are measured on a certified scale.
- CHECK AND SORT
End-of-life tires are checked and sorted into car, truck and bus tires.
Torn and tires over 22.5 inches are not accepted.
End-of-life tires are stored in specialized areas with concrete or asphalt pavement.
End-of-life tires are transported to the site by buses and trucks, and from the site to the recycling plant or cement plants by specialized trucks.
Mechanical crushing or pyrolysis.
- MECHANICAL CRUSHING
First, a specialized machine removes the steel wire from the bead of the tire, then the tires pass through several shredders that form granules of different sizes, then through magnetic separators and mill, as the final product is granulate.
The granulate is used for the production of plates for children’s and sports grounds, tartan, speed bumps as well as restriction pegs on streets, squares and others.
Pyrolysis oil extraction process is carried out in a reactor under vacuum and high temperature conditions. This process also produces rubber coke residue and metal waste.
Pyrolysis oil can be used as a substitute for fuel oil and industrial fuel, metal waste is recycled, and rubber coke residue is used to produce various parts for industry.
The recovery of end-of-life tires is carried out in order to obtain energy in the furnaces of cement plants during the production of cement.
PROTECTION OF NATURE
The release of harmful emissions
into the atmosphere during their uncontrolled
burning is prevented.
ELTs successfully replace
certain fuels, which
reduces their use.
Protection from injuries of
children and athletes.
