Turning Black, Discarded Tires into
Green
, Useful Products
Every year tens of millions of tires are discarded the world over. Almost all of these end up in tire dump yards due to lack of sustainable recycling facilities and no real legislature in place. From dump yards, these tires eventually end up in massive landfills - almost waiting for an ecological disaster to occur.
We have two choices:
Maintain Status Quo
Unsightly tires wasting valuable real estate are just the tip of the iceberg
Hazards of Discarded Tires
Tire Fires
Fires in dump yards continue to be one of the biggest hazards created by non-recycled waste tires. There are numerous instances of major fires in tire dump yards in the recent past.
Health Hazard
Tire dump yards are known to be breading grounds for rodents and pests with some studies linking them to the spread of dengue
Tires exposed to the elements in the dump yards are also known to produce unpleasant odor
One of the largest fires in the world. Ever.
Hagersville, Ontario (Canada) - 12th February 1990
Fire burnt for 17 days
14 million tires burnt
Toxic chemicals like toluene, benzene and phenol seeped into the local water reservoirs
700,000 liters of oil and 140,000 liters of contaminated water and 20,000 m3 of solid waste generated
Estimated cost of fire - over C$ 25 Million
Notable Fires
1983 – 7 million tires burn in Winchester, Virginia, for nine months, polluting nearby areas with lead and arsenic. The location was cleaned up as a Superfund project from 1983 to 2002
1989 – In Heyope (Wales) a fire of approx. 10 million tires burnt for at least 13 years - longest burning tire fire in British history
1998 – 7 million tires burned for 26 months in Tracy, California
1999 – Lightning struck a tire dump in Westley, California, which burned for 30 days. Pyrolitic oil flowed into a nearby stream and also ignited
2012 – A five million tire fire erupted on April 16, 2012 in Kuwait
2013 - Fire broke out at tire dump site in Brunei on February 2nd
Tire Fires the world over

From the Ancient Wheel to Modern Tire
Consider This
There are over a billion cars in the world - which means there are over FOUR BILLION car tires. At least.
The Waste Tire Epidemic
Presently, almost all of these over FOUR BILLION car tires are destined to end up in dump yards and landfills creating an environmental hazard.
