Problems & Solutions
Dengue Fever and Zika Virus, both of which have old tyres as arguably the main reason for their spread across the planet.
DENGUE FEVER / Zika Virus
Ae. albopictus is primarily a forest species that has become adapted to rural, suburban and urban human environments. In recent decades Aedes albopictus has spread from Asia to Africa, the Americas and Europe, notably aided by the international trade in used tyres in which eggs are deposited when they contain rainwater.
The eggs can withstand very dry conditions (desiccation) and remain viable for many months in the absence of water.
We need to eliminate their potential breeding sites, especially containers and discarded tyres that can collect water.
Coral reefs are being destroyed by large-scale dumping of waste tyres. Huge waste tyre fires, engulf the environment, wildlife and man. As well as the cost of the clean up which is huge.
• Tyres dumped on the Florida Reef, USA
• Tyre fire in Melbourne, Australia
• Tyre fire in Kuwait
• Tyre fire in Spain
There are many waste tyre dumps scattered around the world causing hazardous problems to Man and wildlife. Many of these dumps were first started over 25 years ago.
• Stawell Tyre Dump, Australia
• Indonesian Mine tyre dump
• Hudson, Colorado, USA
• World’s largest tyre graveyard, Kuwait
PYReco® Thermal Recovery – the Ultimate Solution to the World’s Waste Tyre Recycling Problem
PYReco®’s waste tyre recycling process involves externally applying heat to tyres in a closed, oxygen free environment, so that the tyres thermally decompose, giving off gas, then oil, leaving a mix of char and steel which is then separated and further refined into a superior, high grade recovered Carbon Black (rCB)
