Recycling Management

The End of the Tire’s Life

Management of tires at the end of their lives is a real issue for society and is becoming increasingly regulated. Worn tires are now recovered in large quantities and in some countries, entirely and can be used for second-hand tires, retreads, reclaimed materials or burned for energy production. Depending on the sizes, it may be possible for Car and Truck tire recycling facilities to process Earthmover tires as well.

Worn Tire Recovery

Wherever they can, Michelin supports the establishment of organizations that give tire manufacturers responsibility for the development and management of recycling facilities for worn tires.

Throughout the world, numerous industries have elected to use worn tires as an alternative fuel source in furnaces in power stations, industrial boilers, incinerators, cement works, etc.  In the USA, more than 150 million tires have been processed and used in the form of energy over the past 10 years.

Worn tires can also be used in numerous material applications. When constructing holding tanks, embankments or sound-proofing walls, they use raw materials with a number of advantages. Finally, they are to be found in road construction, to improve elasticity.
