China Encourages Tyre Recycling Via New Drafts

China is all set to establish new firms that specialise in reusing and recycling of spent tyres. With a steeping rise in the number of waste tyres generated in the country, the government initiates solutions via drafted guidelines.

As a solution to tackle the mounting waste problem of handling waste tyres, the industry ministry of the Chinese government has set up newly drafted guidelines. This new rule has been set up as a part of the country’s effort to cut pollution and ensure comprehensive utilisation of resources.

The drafted guidelines which have been opened to the public for consultation, aim to scale up the tyre recycling business and improve the present recycling technologies. The set guidelines are meant to encourage thermal cracking and increased tyre retreading rates and also boost the recycling of spent tyres to tyre powder.

Handling spent tyre has been a major issue and a growing challenge in China as it has accumulated over 300 million used and unrecycled tyres. The rate of accumulation witnesses a steeping rise of 13 million every year. Recently, the country witnessed 340 million cars on its road by the end of the first half of 2019, as per the transport ministry data.

Various solutions to tackle the present alternatives for mounting waste problems have been launched. One of the steps also includes turning of spent tyres to ‘rubber asphalt’ to be used in the construction of the road. The guidelines are also being considered by the regulators, to use these tyres as a fuel to run their kiln.

Apart from setting and ensuring that guidelines are followed for proper recycling of tyres, the country has also taken a step towards creating a multi-million tyre recycling park. The park is all set to feature different sections for manufacturing, processing, trading, storage and research of these waste tyres.

It is estimated that China can create an industrial chain of worth more than 100 billion yuan ($14.2 billion) if it can manage to recycle the 13 million tonnes of waste tyres produced every year.
