Pneupur, a company established by Brothers Benjamin and Frédéric Belibi, has plans to start a tyre recycling plant in the Cameroon. The plant is scheduled to be built on three hectares of land in Bikok and will be used to convert tyres collected in the Cameroon into granulate, which will then be utilised in sports surfaces and as an over-layer in courtyards and playgrounds.
Test Surface Expected to be Laid During 2018 to Prove Concept Locally
It is hoped that initially the company will create 41 jobs with a further 150 people indirectly employed in collection. Capacity for the first year is planned to be around 70,000 tyres, rising to 150,000 after three years
The project will cost about CFA 327 million (€500,000) and, it has been funded by private operators and investment funds.
