Pyrolysis Tire Recycling Experts — At Your Service

The problem

The use of scrap tyre chips for landscaping has become controversial due to the leaking of metals and other contaminants from the disposed pieces. Zinc is concentrated (up to 2% by weight) to levels high enough to be highly toxic to aquatic life and plants. Of particular concern is evidence that some of the compounds that leak from tyres into water, contain hormone disruptors and cause liver lesions


Several EU counties including Cyprus have  introduced  regulations regarding the number of scrap tyres that can be held on site. Among several environmental concerns regarding their disposal, fire hazard and mosquitoes are of high priority. In the past, millions of tyres have been discarded into open fields. This creates a breeding ground for mosquitoes, since the tyres often hold water inside and remain warm enough for a mosquito to breed. Mosquitoes create a nuisance and can  be responsible for spreading diseases. Furthermore, as tyres can burn for months and are highly flammable worries over tire infested landfills are created in countries with dry and hot environments. Finally, tyres have been known to liquefy, releasing hydrocarbons and other contaminants to the ground and ground water when exposed to  extremely high temperatures


The solution

Pyrolysis is a solution to the increasing ELT problem. The method utilizes environmentally clean processes with no effluents and manages to achieve a near 100% recycling standard. The processes are executed in a controlled environment with a minor amount of emissions from off-gas burning. The system has passed all environmental tests from the Cyprus Government and is granted an emission license. Furthermore, the company installed the special Continuous monitoring system for emissions which allows tracking and reporting of emission levels
