Waste Tire Uses

Canvassing Barriers in California


  • Different dynamics between northern and southern California

  • Geographic proximity does not mean tire and product availability

  • Shortage of facilities in southern California that have equipment and capacity to handle the quantity of tires that currently go to the landfills

Canvassing Barriers in California


  • Tire processors compete with facilities and landfills that charge low tipping fees

  • Technology and markets must be supported by supply of tires

  • Subsidies by other states and countries influence collection, product and disposal

Canvassing Barriers in California


  • Generators, facilities, and registered and unregistered haulers of scrap and used tires that bypass the regulated system impact pricing and market share

  • Overregulation penalizes the businesses that abide by regulation

  • Enforcement activity of the unregulated players is limited

Canvassing Barriers in California


  • Difficult for many of the businesses to balance tire flow, seasonality, markets, and money

  • Insufficient and sustainable markets require overcoming market barriers

Canvassing Barriers in California


  • Research and development may be cost prohibitive

  • Education, advertising and marketing campaigns may not be cost effective

  • The cost of processing, manufacturing, equipment, land, and facility expansion capabilities impact decision to build business

Canvassing Barriers in California


  • Lack of industry standardizations impacts ability to expand technology and market development

    • Definitions and language

    • Industry weights and measurements (being prepared by the RMA & RCC)

    • Material Survey Data Sheet (MSDS)

    • Testing Certification


Canvassing Barriers in California

  • Interstate transport is market driven and cannot be controlled or regulated by state or local government

  • Impact of tires and feedstock being imported and exported can effect the balance of markets

  • Industry wants confirmation of authenticity of origination using California tires in CIWMB grant process

Canvassing Barriers in California


  • Rubberized Asphalt Concrete growth is limited by understanding, education, and dollars

  • Board to review the importance TDF plays in diverting 20% of the tire flow in California and impact if divert tires away from facilities

  • Storage requirements for long term civil engineering applications projects using TDA are not always feasible

Canvassing Barriers in California


  • Business Issues:

    • Workman’s compensation

    • Other insurance costs

    • High energy costs

    • Low-cost overseas rivals

    • RCC and EPA – will these programs help or hinder growth in tire recycling

    • Air quality

    • Transportation costs

California Waste Tire Activity


  • Grants will influence amount of income to processor, manufacturer and/or supplier

  • Focus on expanding existing ground rubber markets

  • Focus on developing civil engineering projects

  • Support TDF markets as they will continue to grow on their own
