The correct disposal of end-of-life tyres (ELT) is an important and complex issue. The systems produced by FORREC guarantee specific treatment of end-of-life tyres by processing waste materials to obtain three different types of waste reduction as follows:
- Reduction in size of the material (shredded tyre crumbs): ideal for reducing volumes, facilitating warehousing and producing energy: waste becomes an alternative source of fuel
- Grinding up to 20 mm (chips): separating iron and textile fibres. In this case, the material can be used for thermal treatment or as a substrate in civil and industrial works
- Secondary raw materials (crumb rubber 0-4 mm): 99% pure; this material is suitable for application in anti-shock flooring, compounds and mixtures for asphalt, urban furnishings, insulation and sound absorbing panels.
