Learn about the Global Issue and Solutions
Unrecycled tire waste is an enormous national and global problem because of their non-biodegradability, their flammability (tire fires) and their chemical composition that leads to leaching of toxic substances into the ground on dumping and hazardous fumes on incineration. Since they are hefty, thick, and made of multiple materials, scrap tires present distinct challenges in recycling and disposal. In 2007, around 300 million waste tires had been produced in the United States. The U.S. as the largest producer of waste tires alone produced 291.8 million tires in 2009 as estimated by the U.S. Rubber Manufacturers Association. In 2013, 3,824 thousand tons of tires were generated in the U.S. Newer figures (2015) show about 450 million scrap tires generated annually in the U.S.
Recycling is a solution!WHAT WE DO
US Rubber will in the business of processing waste tires into crumb rubber. Crumb rubber is recycled rubber produced from automotive and truck scrap tires. During the process, steel and tire cord (fluff) are removed, leaving crumb pieces approximately one inch in size. Further processing can reduce the pieces into smaller size granules depending on end use.
