car population of the world is rapidly increasing. In the 20th century
automotive growth mainly took part in Europe and Northern America, but with the
new millennium a wealthy middle class has sprung up in the rest of the world.
Large countries like China and India have had an explosion in the number of
private cars, and with more cars also more scrap tires follow.
leading tire manufacturers of the world are working intensely to improve the
durability of a set of tires so that they can drive for more kilometers, but
other factors such as increased focus on road safety and legislation
prohibiting tires that are too worn down, are pulling events in the opposite
is estimated that 13.5 million tones of tires are scrapped every year. These figures
include all sorts of tires from car tires to truck tires and the huge tractor
and earth moving tires.
Tires can have many threats on the environment, we can summarize them as follow:
The Environmental Protective Agency classifies tires as
municipal solid waste rather than hazardous waste. Nevertheless, tires that are
thrown away instead of recycled can cause serious environmental problems. The
issues arise when the chemicals they contain are released into the environment
-- the breakdown of tires releases hazardous wastes. Tires contain oils that
contaminate the soil; they also consist of heavy metals such as lead that can
persist in the environment and accumulate over time.
Another major concern of discarded tires is increased fire risk.
When heated, tires become a fuel source. In fact, nearly 50 percent of recycled
scrap tires find a second life in fuel generation. Fires fueled by tires can be
more difficult to control and extinguish. In addition, the smoke contains toxic
chemicals and particulate matter that poses human health consequences, such as
a worsening of existing respiratory conditions so Burning
tires creating huge amounts of air pollution, containing toxins such as:
– Benzene (carcinogen)
– Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons
– Butadiene (central nervous system damage, carcinogen)
– Styrene (potential carcinogen)
Discarded tires present another environmental risk that may not
be as obvious as waste generation. Tires can collect water and become a
breeding ground for mosquitoes and other pests. This effect can, in turn,
increase the risk for vector-borne diseases such as encephalitis. Rodents may
also find habitat in tires.
Thus we at InjazIndustry S.A.R.L, use these scrap tires to
create recycled raw materials that can be used in thousands of industries,
therefore minimizing the effect on the environment and preventing our natural
resources from being depleted and creating new products that are cost effective
and quality guaranteed.
