Tire and Retread Expo adds recycling section

Order Reprints

Technologies and services related to tire recycling will be part of future North American Tire & Retread Expo events. The new “Tire Recycling World” section will debut at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center April 19-21, 2016, in New Orleans

It is estimated that more than 300 million tires are discarded annually. More than half of used tires are consumed as secondary fuel in some industries like cement production. Reclaimed rubber is also used in various industries including shoe manufacturing, road paving and sports stadium ground fillers.

Show organizers say they hope the permanent addition to the Expo allows companies in the tire recycling field to present their technology and services to the tire dealers and tire industry.
