Renewable solutions for the world's scrap tyre problems.
Recovery of valuable components from scrap tyres.
w2v responds to a profound need to see some of our waste used to create value. Tyres are a prime example of this: incredibly useful in their first years of life, they are very hard to dispose of without severely impacting the environment. They also constitute a health hazard in helping to harbour some of the world’s diseases like dengue and malaria.
There are currently over 10 billion scrap tyres around the world. Dumping, and failing to dispose of scrap tyres can lead to an elevated danger of fire, rodent infestation, and ground-pollution. Mosquitoes breeding in the water inside scrap tyres will spread Malaria, Dengue Western Nile fever, Filariasis, and other diseases. It is estimated that another 1.5 billion tyres become scrap every year.
Scrap tyres also take up a vast amount of space in workshops, garages and in transit, and are an unsightly and unproductive use of land. They are often disposed of illegally and most of them cannot and should not be put into landfills. A solution has to be found.
SRT has recently completed a major project with Imperial College London, Cobham Microwave, Artis, ABB, and Hughes Pumps. The project was funded by the UK government to investigate ways of creating valuable products from scrap tyres, and commercialisation is now in progress.
In the meantime Symphony has announced the SymTyre-S300 - which can reduce a scrap tyre into flat-pack components within 60 seconds.
