In this section, Tyre & Rubber Recycling report on the latest equipment to be brought in the tyre recycling industry

University of Zambia School of Engineering, Lecturer and Researcher, Dr. Sam Sichilalu, has developed an innovation designed to generate fuel from polymer waste such as discarded tyres, plastic, and rubber

At the beginning of 2019, a new processing plant with 6,000 m² of factory space was put into operation at Hubert Eing Kunststoffverwertung GmbH at their site in Gescher.

UK company, Roadmender is offering a range of pelletised rubberised bitumen that can be used on site by adding to asphalt mixes at the point of use. Available in 20Kg bags the unique pelletised bitumen addresses issues over transporting wet pour asphalt from the plant to site, reducing waste and transport costs.

Traceability of tyres is a huge issue for the tyre recovery sector. When tyres end up in the wrong place, dumped or exported illegally, there is currently no traceability.  RFID company PragmatIC presented to the TRA Forum their solution for legitimate recyclers.

 

A “new” asphalt that uses recycled waste tyres has been launched by Tarmac, according to an article in Highways Magazine.

Polish pyrolysis equipment firm, Syntoil finished second in the global Chivas Venture competition

The NSW Environment Protection Authority (EPA) has issued a licence allowing the first green tyre-recycling plant to operate in the town of Warren.

 

 

Italian tyre recovery consortium, Eco Tyre, has announced that its devlucanisation project has shown proven results in real life use on retreaded Hankook tyres.

 

Researchers at Henan Polytechnic University in China have hydrotreated the oil derived from hydrothermal liquefaction of scrap tyres (STO) with waste engine oil (WEO) using five different activated carbon-supported noble metal catalysts—Pd/C, Pt/C, Ru/C, Ir/C, and Rh/C—for the production of liquid fuels.

PowerHouse Energy Group plc, the UK technology company pioneering hydrogen and clean energy production from waste plastic, which we recently featured in Tyre & Rubber Recycling, has agreed an MOU with exclusive development partner, Waste2Tricity Limited (“W2T”).
