Designing Building Products Made With Recycled Tires . Zero Waste—You Make It Happen!. Moving Towards Tire Recycling. Over the last 15 years, The Major Tire Industries and The Federal and State Governments have been diverting tires from landfills to use in recycling projects.
Zero Waste—You Make It Happen!
Tire-derived fuel (TDF), as its name suggests, refers to tires as a supplemental energy resource.
Shredded Tire Materials
Crumb Rubber Materials
Tires and tire products function as homogeneous mixtures, but processing can impact physical characteristics as size and shape are altered and as reinforcing wire and fabric are removed.
The following are important tire material characteristics:
Tire Acoustic Insulation
Tire Temperature Tolerance
Tire Leaching Characteristics
Tire Energy Content
Tire Impact Cushioning
Tire FlammabilityTechnical Characteristics of Whole or Processed Tires
