Management of the recycling and recovery of used tyres
Recycling and recovery of used tyres
Wherever it can, Michelin supports and helps to set up structures to deal with the collection and recycling of used tyres. Civil Engineering tyres, depending on their size, can be treated by the same recovery channels as all other types of tyres. A number of industries around the world have turned to used tyres as an alternative fuel in the furnaces of their thermal power stations, industrial boilers, incinerators, cement works, etc. In the United States, more than 150 million tyres have been transformed and used to generate energy over the course of the last ten years.
Used tyres have also found many other applications: incorporated in the constructions of waterproof structures, used as infill for earthworks or put to use in noise-resistant walls, they constitute a raw material possessing numerous advantages. They can also be found in road surfaces, increasing their durability and cutting down traffic noise.
All our Civil Engineering and Handling tyres are repairable to the extent of the damage that they have suffered. Any repair must be carried out by a Michelin-accredited professional. It will enable you to extend the life of your tyre.
