Assessment Topic

A technological and economic assessment is made of alternative technologies to recover the waste rubber in scrap vehicle tires. The principal technical alternatives evaluated are ground scrap rubber as an asphalt additive, retreading, energy recovery, and carbon black recovery. The greatest potential benefits are seen to occur with retreading and asphalt additives, followed by carbon black and energy recovery.
