Pollution from car tires is killing off salmon on US west coast, study finds
Mass die-offs of coho salmon just before they are about to spawn have been traced to tire fragments washed into streams by rain

Pollution from car tires that washes into waterways is helping cause a mass die-off of salmon on the US west coast, researchers have found.
In recent years, scientists have realized half or more of the coho salmon, also known as silver salmon, returning to streams in Washington state were dying before spawning. The salmon, which reach 2ft in length, are born in freshwater streams before making an epic journey out to sea where they live most of their adult lives. A small number then return to their original streams to lay eggs before dying.

The cause of the die-off has remained a mystery but a new study, published in Science, has seemingly found a culprit. When it rains, stormwater carries fragments of old car tires into nearby creeks and streams. The tires contain certain chemicals that prevent them breaking down but also prove deadly to the coho salmon.
“The salmon would be inexplicably dead, which is tragic because this beautiful wild animal should be culminating its life and then it’s suddenly dead,” said Jenifer McIntyre, an assistant professor of aquatic toxicology at Washington State University. “The more we look, the more we find it. In some years all of the fish we find dead did not spawn.”
Samples taken from urban streams around Puget Sound, near Seattle, and subsequent laboratory work identified a substance called 6PPD, which is used as a preservative for car tires, as the toxic chemical responsible for killing the salmon. It’s currently unclear how it kills the fish but McIntyre said it was likely to be an “acute cardio-respiratory problem”.
The finding suggests that fish and other creatures elsewhere in the US and around the world are also at risk from the car tire chemical. Animals are being “exposed to this giant chemical soup and we don’t know what many of the chemicals in it even are”, said co-author Edward Kolodziej, an associate professor at the University of Washington.

“Here we started with a mix of 2,000 chemicals and were able to get all the way down to this one highly toxic chemical, something that kills large fish quickly and we think is probably found on every single busy road in the world,” Kolodziej added.
The nature of the threat facing coho salmon has been unclear since the fish were first seen “rolling” down streams, unable to swim upright, in the 1990s, McIntyre said. In an undisturbed riparian area it would be extremely rare for a coho salmon to die before laying its eggs but a growing sprawl of roads, cars and buildings near waterways has coincided with a surge in pre-spawning deaths. A reduction in 6PPD use or buffers to prevent the flow of pollution could help stem the loss of salmon, McIntyre said.
Race to exploit the world’s seabed set to wreak havoc on marine life
Coho salmon are federally listed as either threatened or endangered along the US west coast and have diminished greatly from highly developed areas, such as near San Francisco. They are just one species of salmon facing an array of threats from dams, polluting and the climate crisis.
This summer, federal authorities gave permission for a cull of hundreds of sea lions along the Columbia River basin in a desperate attempt to save declining numbers of Chinook and sockeye salmon. More recently, the US government decided to block a proposed gold and copper mine in Alaska that would have threatened the world’s largest wild salmon run.
“Most species of salmon are experiencing a serious threat at least somewhere in their native range,” said McIntyre. “One of my lifelong goals would be to make our cohabitation with them more sustainable. Salmon are beautiful and delicious and important to ecosystems but they are becoming a rare thing for people to experience.”

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.
