How can rubber tires be recycled?



  1. 0 Votes

    The rubber tire recycling industry recycled almost 80% of the total production of rubber tires in the U.S. in 2007. Those tires are usually used to reclaim energy but can be employed for other purposes as well, including molded products (where the use of recycled rubber is much less energy-demanding compared to plastic; it has “between four and 20 times lower carbon footprint”). Large recycling plants are actually more energy efficient than smaller counterparts. Furthermore, recycled rubber has a smaller carbon footprint than coal and could be used as an electricity generator to reduce CO2 emissions.
