How Much does a Tire Recycling Plant Cost?
There are three main points for investment in waste tire recycling line: First, the daily output of processing waste tires; Second, what kind of waste tires are processed; Third, whether the processed tires are granules, rubber blocks or powder.
Manufacturers based on these three necessary conditions in order to give a suitable tire recycling line price quotation. The overall cost ranges from 30,000-500,000, depending on the actual situation.
We can provide semi-automatic tire recycling line and fully automatic tire recycling line, you can choose according to your needs. Semi-automatic tire recovery line features low budget and quick start projects. Full automatic tire recovery line with high productivity, high efficiency, high automation features, you can get a higher benefit.
Process of Tyre Recycling
- Deal with the steel bead wires
- Cut big tyres into pieces if necessary
- Shred tyres into small block smaller than 6cm
- Grind the block into rubber granules mixed with steel wire and fiber
- Remove the steel wires and fiber
- Make pure rubber powder
How Are Tires Recycled?
Great strides have been made in tyre recycling and reuse in recent years, partly because of environmental regulations and partly because of innovative technologies that have created new uses for old tyres.
Civil engineers, in particular, have found a wide range of uses for old tires. Chopped tyres are used to build embankments and subsurface fillings; They can also be used as shock absorbers for railway lines. Grounded tyre rubber can also be used as a road or building material when mixed with asphalt or concrete.
Because of their shock-absorbing properties, shredded tires can be used as effective ground cover for safer playgrounds and as material for running tracks and other sports facilities. Moreover, the durability of tyres makes them ideal for reuse, such as dock bumpers, sidewalk material, kerbs and curbs on roads, and even speed bumps and highway crash barriers.
Because oil and rubber burn well, shredded tires are burned as fuel in some industrial processes.
Tyre-derived fuel, or TDF, is used in pulp and paper mills, cement kilns, power companies and other facilities. “Emissions from tyre-derived fuels are generally lower and generally in the same range as those from conventional fossil fuels,” as long as the combustion occurs in properly maintained equipment, the EPA says.
Old tires also have several imaginative household uses. Wheel swings, sandals, garden POTS, furniture, flooring and art are all made from old tires.
Is Tire Recycling Business Profitable?
It is convenient for the individual. However, due to it is difficult to dispose of and consumes a lot of space in landfills, you may have to pay for recycling tires. Some governments imposed a levy on new tires for recycling. It is expensive for someone who has lots of tires or rubber products. While on the other hand, it means there are rich cheap raw materials, which makes the tyre recycling business more profitable.
Nowadays, no matter in developed or developing countries, more and more individuals or families choose to buy cars or more, because of the improvement of economic ability and the cheap price of vehicles. Correspondingly, tyre waste has increased dramatically. More than 3 billion tires are discarded worldwide each year. In the United States, the tire scrap rate is 1.1 tires/person/year, resulting in over 300 million tires being scrapped each year. Other developed countries are not much better off. In Canada, about 26 million tires are sold each year, and an equal number are produced as scrap tires. More than 100,000 worn tyres are removed from cars, vans and lorries every day in the UK. In China, more than 10 million tires are discarded every year.
At the same time, used tires present unique recycling and disposal challenges because they are heavy, bulky and made of a variety of materials. The use of old tyres is becoming a pressing problem in many countries. What are the current recycling methods? Generally speaking, there are three main types of tire waste recycling, namely, tire derived fuel, ground rubber applications and civil engineering.
Of the three, though, incineration can help reduce reliance on fossil fuels and keep used tyres out of landfills. But because of its inefficiency and emissions, it is far from ideal. Compared to other applications, the current effect of tyre debris is better. For those looking to start a tyre recycling business, there may be concerns about the market. In fact, recycled rubber is widely used in many fields, such as sports fields, automotive industry, construction, geotechnical/asphalt applications, adhesives and sealants, shock absorbers and safety products, rubber and plastic products.
