Recycling Of Used Tires- Tire Derived Fuel Is It A Scam For Fees

August 5,2019-Used Tire Beach, Fl-Used Tire recycling and fee collecting is it a scam? The fact of the matter is tire manufacturers should be held to cradle to grave recycling by law. The makers of tires have sold the public a bill of goods as to the effectiveness and environmentally safe destruction of tires by burning with coal. How many people have their hands in the till collecting scrap tire fees? Where is all of this money going? If you check out your invoices when buying tires itis confusing at best what the consumer is paying and to whom for tire disposal.
The tire industry taught the cement industry how to “monetize” scrap tires for fuel. They created Tire Derived Fuel for a tipping fee. For cement makers, it was a win-win they make money and save on the cost of coal to run their kilns. The bill of good sold by tire makers that tires are burning hotter and cleaner than coal does not say much. Tires burning j the kilns emit plenty of toxins also, just like coal. America is burning nearly 150 million scrap tires a year, but not really clean tire to energy as they would like you to believe.fact is Goodyear Bridgestone/Firestone Pirelli they are the ones that should be handling the worldwide scrap tire issue, yes scrap tires are still a problem.

Has The Tire Industry Scammed Us Into Believing Tire Derived Fuel Is Recycling And Not An Environmental Hazard

July 19, 2019
Used Tire News-Deerfield Beach, Fl- As we have written about many times more than half of the used tires/scrap tires disposed of annually are processed by cement kilns. Has the tire industry sold the world a bill of goods just so they can cheaply discard of 150 million-plus scrap tires every year in an environmentally unsound and polluting way? Well if you take a look at tires being burned in cement kilns you may begin to question other than the cement company saving money as well as the cheap disposal method for the tire dealer who else is benefitting. Certainly, environmentalists have been questioning the Tires burn cleaner and hotter than coal. Really who said coal burned clean? The truth- the dirty truth is that tire manufacturers need to be held to “cradle to grave” recycling if we are ever going to really solve the scrap tire problem. Burning tires in kilns is at best a short term solution of what to do with them as opposed to a really good for the environment solution. Tire recycling cradle to grave putting the emphasis where it belongs environmentally safe destruction and reuse of as much material before destruction, by the factory.

My Brother The Prince Of Used Tires In Puerto Rico

Used Tire News-Deerfield Beach,Fl-My Buddy, my lil brother came to Florida so we could continue selling used tires together. I have known Carlos for more than 25 plus years. Carlos’s dad Juan Ramon and I were business partners back in 1994. Carlos worked for us and travelled extensively with me. We visited Germany,The Netherlands, Denmark, Switzerland and other western European countries in search of used tires. We also visited many U.S cities and Central American countries to go and sell the used tires we had bought.

Two years ago Carlos moved to Deerfield Beach so we could begin the second chapter in our used tire venture.While we got off to a slow start with the tires. Used tires were in both of our blood and was something we felt we had to do,together.Unfortunately we never got that real chance,last Sunday I found Carlos dead in his apartment.

I had not communicated with him since Thursday night. When I got there Sunday Am and found him on the floor ,of course it was too late,he was gone.Getting there earlier would not have changed Carlos’s outcome but it would have meant my buddy , my brother was not all alone on the floor for three days as well as his body may have been able to be preserved and his family could have buried him. As a result of being alone for three days it was not possible to transport his body as severe decomposition had set in. His family had no choice , but to cremate him and have his ashes returned to his beloved “Isla” Puerto Rico”

We have lost “The Prince Of Puerto Rican Used Tires” ,I have lost a dear friend and brother.

My deepest condolences to Juan Ramon and the entire Perez family I know how difficult the past 9 days have been,RIP Carlos Javier Perez. Te Amo!

Please folks if you have a friend,relative a loved one that lives alone check up on them.The first sign of them not reponding should be the warning that something may be wrong and they need a welfare check.
