Leading bicycle distributor links up with tube and tyre recycling company in the UK
PARTNERSHIPS

NOVEMBER 13, 2020

Gradeall
The e-magazine Cycle Industry News reports that Madison – one of the UK’s leading bicycle parts and accessories distributors – had linked up with national tube and tyre recycling company Velorim in a bid to offer its retailers a channel to dispose of end-of-life tyres and rubber waste.

The magazine says that with the legislation on scrapping bicycle tyres now caught up with the same rules applicable to car tyres. Velorim set out to assist retailers in disposing of their waste.

Participating bike stores, workshops, hire schemes and cycle refurbishment centres can all now become local collection points. The rubber collected will be reprocessed into new materials, or re-used in other ways, with zero going to landfill and none exported. At present, the majority of the 30,500,000 used tyres and 152,500,000 tubes end up in landfill each year.

Those opting to take part will be asked to collect enough product to fill either a tyre cage (100 x 120 cm), a tyre bag for those with less space, or a tube box (30cm x 40cm x 50cm). Valves must be cut out of tubes prior to shipping. A tyre recycling cage will hold around 180 tyres, a bag around 25 tyres and a carboard box around 160 inner tubes.

For shops and workshops involved in the scheme there is an initial set up fee of £65 for tyre cages and £10 for tyre bags or inner tube boxes. Thereafter there are collection fees for the tyres and inner tubes to be recycled, which are as follows:

£90 per tyre cage collection
£16.50 per tyre bag collection
£20 per tube box collection
According to the magazine, shops needn’t foot the bill entirely though, reminds Velorim, which says that a small levy on customers asking for waste disposal is entirely acceptable.

“You can charge consumers an amount, for example: 50p per tyre and 20p per inner tube to recycle these with your businesses, or you can encourage consumers to buy a new tyre or inner tube in store and include the costs of recycling as part of the purchase,” says the firm.

Shops are able to request point of sale and merchandising materials ranging A5 information leaflets, an eco-banner, an A4 Strut Card or a dump bin for the tyres to be collected in for instore.

Unfortunately tubes that carry sealant or have multiple repair patches adorned can not be recycled.

Velorim notes that collections can be arranged by email at support@velorim.co.uk. Dealers can find a view and download a full list of FAQs by logging into Madison B2B and here.

ECO Green Equipment – one of the world’s leaders in end-of-life tire shredding equipment helps Missouri-based trucking company convert old truck tires into rubber mulch.

ECO Green’s recent press release reports that Prime Inc., a Missouri-based trucking company that had been devoted to retreading their used tires, discovered that 20% of end-of-life tires couldn’t be retreaded, and those tires — all 100,000 per year — were ending its lifecycle at landfills. With the help of ECO Green Equipment, they’re improving the environment by creating environment-friendly valued-added products and making money while doing it.

ECO Green Equipment is one of the global leaders in turnkey, cost-effective tire recycling systems and integrated tire shredding equipment. ECO Green says that its modular equipment is designed and engineered to deliver optimum production efficiencies for a broad spectrum of rubber aftermarkets, to include rubber mulch, crumb rubber, rubber powder, tire derived shreds (TDS), and wire-free chips.

Prime Inc. reached out to ECO Green for a solution to their tire waste problem. With the help of ECO Green’s equipment – the manufacturer highlights – Prime now converts dual truck and super single tires into rubber mulch and other value added product that can be sold for use in landscaping, walking trails, athletic surfaces, and playground surfaces.

“This process greatly reduces our waste and gets us to a sustainable place where everyone needs to be,” said Mike Jones of EcoShred, the division of Prime Inc. that is dedicated to recycling the company’s tires. “We can now process 98% of the material that comes through.”

Tire Recycling In The United Kingdom Many Tire Recyclers Non Compliant

Used Tire News-Usedtires.com-UK’s Tyre Recovery Association (TRA) reports that a Freedom of Information request (*FOI request submitted by ‘Tyre & Rubber Recycling’ magazine) has starkly exposed levels of non-compliance by many operators claiming ‘T8 exemptions’ for their businesses.

TRA says that in 2019 inspections of almost sixty sites carried out by the Environment Agency across England revealed more than one third to be legally non-compliant. Further action in the EA, conducted in the first 8 months of 2020, showed the situation to have further worsened with almost 50% of sites visited failing to meet legal requirements.

‘This confirms all our worst fears,’ said Peter Taylor OBE, TRA Secretary General, ‘T8 exemptions were intended to offer a ‘light’ touch regulating regime under which small businesses could operate but instead it has been very widely abused as we have long argued. In very many cases this approach allowed irresponsible players to flout the Law yet enjoy levels of overhead and compliance well below those of fully permitted businesses. We are pleased that government now intends to end this gateway to poor practice.’

The Tyre Recovery Association urges all those disposing of end-of-life tyres and especially vehicle dismantlers and tyre retailers to carefully scrutinise the compliance status of those to whom they pass on their waste, their own legal Duty of Care demands it. Tyre recycling industry’s own Responsible Recycler Scheme provides just that assurance of best practice. RRS members are audited and re-certificated annually and endeavour always to maintain high standards of service and compliance.

Used Tire News-Blackcycle By Michelin Tire Recycling End Of Life For Tires


Used Tire News-Usedtires.com-Deerfield Beach, Fl-BlackCycle – potential “game-changer” for end-of-life tires and recycled tire rubber

OCTOBER 26, 2020

According to expert opinion in the tire recycling industry, BlackCycle – the research project coordinated by Michelin – can revolutionize end-of-life tire recycling worldwide. This opinion was voiced by experts during a meeting of the Bureau of International Recycling (BIR) at its Tires & Rubber Committee on October 15, 2020.

There was tangible excitement at the BIR Tyres & Rubber Committee webinar on October 15 following a guest presentation on the recycling of end-of-life tires (ELTs) into secondary raw materials for tires and other product applications.

The Committee’s Chairman Max Craipeau of China-based Greencore Resources Ltd said the BlackCycle research project coordinated by major producer Michelin had the potential to “revolutionize” ELT recycling at a time when the key crumb rubber market was under severe threat. If successful, it could mean that, in five to six years from now, around half of Europe’s ELTs would be incorporated as secondary raw materials into new tires, he added.

According to Michelin, the €16-million project currently involves five research and technology organizations, seven industrial partners and an innovation cluster. Moreover, it spans activities such as tire collection, shredding and granulation, tire pyrolysis, rectification of tire pyrolysis oil into valuable materials, production of recovered carbon black.

Michaël Cogne of Michelin pinpointed that the aim of BlackCycle project is to address recovered carbon black and pyrolytic oil as well as “to find the best way to valorize everything to a good level of performance.”

Describing the BlackCycle project, BIR writes: “Chemical competencies would be used to refine oils to create a desirable feedstock for the manufacture of carbon black, he added.”

“With the full value chain, you have a good chance to valorize all the outputs for use in “high-value applications”, added Michaël Cogne describing the research which aims to revolutionize tire recycling and the use of recycled tire rubber and tire-derived materials.

The project is expected to be beneficial for the industry players involved in end-of-life tire management and recycling. Max Craipeau, the committee chairman, said that the key aspect of the initiative is that end-of-life tire collectors, recyclers and tire pyrolysis operators would “still have a major role to play in the industry as providers of added-value feedstock.”

According to BIR’s chairman, this is expected to apply even to small and medium-sized tire recyclers, allowing such operators to continue exploiting their present equipment.

Another Tires & Rubber Committee panelist Martin von Wolfersdorff – recovered carbon black expert and head of Wolfersdorff Consulting in Berlin – praised the BlackCycle recycling objectives as exceeding Michelin’s initial Vision 2048 goals. He estimated a recovered carbon black production of around 400,000 tons per annum and a sustainable carbon black production of some 80,000 tons per annum by 2030 if every second European tire were recycled in the BlackCycle system.

Martin von Wolfersdorff and Robert Weibold – a tire recycling and pyrolysis consulting expert from Vienna – were also impressed by the “all-star cast” gathered by Michelin, as well as by the “deep integration” of the research venture. During the event, they also actively discussed breakthrough technologies and projects to drive circular economy in the end-of-life tire recycling sector.

In its press release devoted to the online event, BIR pinpoints that the webinar participants acknowledged that the emergence of this potentially huge outlet for end-of-life tires was particularly well-timed given the regulatory storm clouds currently gathering over the main outlet for crumb rubber use as infill for sports pitches, a topic discussed in greater depth at the BIR Tires & Rubber Committee’s eForum in June this year. Speaking at the webinar, Mr. Craipeau expressed the fear that a ban on infill “is on its way”.

In a brief market analysis, Mr. Craipeau confirmed that the pandemic had dramatically reduced the number of vehicles on roads and therefore ELT arisings, forcing many recyclers to turn to their buffer stocks. On the demand side, COVID had curtailed the number of projects requiring crumb rubber, including the development of sports pitches.

Spanish End of Life Tire Program


Used Tire News-Usedtires.com-Deerfield Beach,Fl-From Weibold-

SIGNUS – SIGNUS has just published its Activity Report for fiscal year 2019, which is available on its website.

SIGNUS – the Spanish end-of-life tire management authority – reports that during 2019 it recycled 188,631 tons of end-of-life tires and converted them into new useful products for different applications. Of the total amount collected, about 12% were used to prepare for reuse (second-use or retreaded tires) and the remaining 88% were recycled in the different tire recycling plants in Spain into products that were destined for different applications. Among the main uses to which the material from end-of-life tires went in 2019, 39,011 tons of recycled tire rubber went for the construction of 390 soccer fields, 21,900 tons for the manufacture of 4,380 playgrounds and 2,940 tons that were used in paving 280 kilometers of roads.

Report by Signus is available for download here.

During the past year and in the same line of action as previous years, SIGNUS carried out various actions related to its commitment to the Circular Economy in collaboration with private companies, universities and technology centers promoting different projects to give value to recycled materials, this being the Entity’s contribution to sustainability and the circular economy in line with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). Among the different projects in which the Entity is working, the use of recycled rubber in insulation material in the construction sector, its use for the manufacture of automotive components or its use in infrastructure construction, in addition to its use in combination with ballast on railways to reduce maintenance work.

Also noteworthy is the recent approval of the modification of the regulation of the management of end-of-life tires, published on August 8 in the Official State Gazette, after almost 15 years of validity of the current one, which has addressed the renewal of the legislation that will allow a greater efficiency of the system and improvements in the management of end-of-life tires in Spain.

USED TIRE NEWS MAY 2020

USEd TIRE NEWS-FROM WEIBOLD.COM-
According to the Environmental Protection Authority (EPA), Texas is well-known among other American states for its end-of-life tire problem. This May, Eco-Flex – one of the leading tire recycling companies in Canada – announced it would establish a major manufacturing, distribution, and sales center in Lampasas, Texas to help tackle the problem. The new tire recycling plant is expected to bring up to 200 jobs to the area while supporting the state’s progressive economic growth plans. The construction of the 25,000-square-foot tire recycling plant is expected to begin on June 2, 2020.

According to the company, Eco-Flex has earned a global reputation as an innovator in the recycling of end-of-life passenger car tires and manufacturing recycled rubber products. Every year, the business produces crumb rubber from approximately three million discarded tires for use in new construction and remodeling, sidewalks, access ramps and more. The company’s customers range from municipalities to segments of the commercial, industrial, residential and agricultural industries. Three of the company’s major products include sound barrier protection walls, sidewalk blocks, and patio blocks. According to the company, these products are one-of-a-kind and exclusive to Eco-Flex.

According to Heather Deal, a Vancouver, B.C. city councilor, the Eco-Flex products were an asset to the community she represents. “We have the greenest city initiative and these sidewalks are made of recycled tires which makes them a great alternative to concrete. We also have a lot of people of different abilities in this city and we want to make sure our sidewalks are comfortable for pedestrians and people in wheelchairs…they are a very successful product for us.”

The company reports that the Eco-Flex move been initiated by lifelong Texas resident, Mike Cour, president of U.S. operations who said Texas is the perfect place to showcase Eco-Flex’s one-of-a-kind product. He cited the state’s forward-thinking plans for an integrated transportation system and the more than 8,000 planned associated projects as a primary reason for the company’s decision. Likewise, the state is a hub for tire recycling and ranks second in the country for most automobiles on the roads. Texas is also home to Genan, a large tire recycling company that breaks down tires into the raw material that Eco-Flex then uses to produce its environmentally-friendly patent-protected products.

As reported by Eco-Flex, at the heart of the company’s mission is a commitment to safeguarding the environment. Its products solve for two major ecological issues:

1) excessive timber use in construction leading to deforestation; 2) overuse of concrete, which is responsible for up to eight percent of the world’s CO2 emissions, leading to harmful greenhouse gases.

“Texas is the ideal location for our new facilities. Its strong economy, green-friendly attitude, and the willingness of officials at all levels to collaborate with us made our decision a no-brainer,” said Cour. “Every day, Eco-Flex helps transform a century-old environmental problem into a collection of innovative solutions for public and residential applications, and the state, business community and Texans, in general, are on board with that.”

Currently, Eco-Flex has been responsible for recycling over 50 million end-of-life passenger car tires. Manufacturing at the new Lampasas, TX, plant is expected to begin in August with products available for purchase directly from the U.S. operations office. The company will continue its strong operational presence in Canada.
