The tire recycling industry is experiencing a boom in investment in new technologies and methods. Many of the claims by suppliers and intellectual property holders are unsubstantiated, unproven, or blatantly false.
Weibold’s Technology Evaluation Module provides you – the tire recycling project initiator or manager – with expert decision making tools in the following efforts:
The Technology Evaluation will allow you to draw on Weibold’s large database of tire recycling equipment suppliers worldwide and a network of experts in various fields to make intelligent choices on technology to be acquired, expanded, or improved. Leverage our collective know-how to choose the right technology partner, engage on optimum terms, and maximize the bang on your CAPEX buck! Weibold is not affiliated with any technology supplier or intellectual property holder.
Prerequisites for a Technology Evaluation is either a Pre-Feasibility Study or a clear client mandate with detailed information on issues, goals, budgets, available feedstock, product specifications, and markets for the tire recycling project. Weibold will research, locate, contact, engage, evaluate, rank, and shortlist a number of tire recycling technology suppliers for a given technology problem. A team of multi-lingual researchers is available to obtain deep technical information if required. Ranking of potential solutions is based on pre-agreed weighted criteria such as quality, origin, throughput capabilities, relevance to the client’s objectives, price/performance metrics, supplier’s experience, references, and other factors. Equipment to be so evaluated can include pre-processing equipment, debeaders, granulators, but also presses and extrusion equipment. Upon request Weibold can also conduct negotiations with suppliers on your behalf.

Weibold is conducting trend, market and technology studies for Clients around the globe. Our Clients include plant operators, investors, lenders, recycling associations, technology providers, and product manufacturers. Now selected cross sections of the knowledge we have collected and pooled in our research database is available for recycling strategists and operators looking for innovations and trends on specific subjects in world-wide markets.
The full-scale Bankable Business Plan gives the Client a detailed industry description and outlook, inform about existing and future target markets, include a competitor analysis, financial modelling tool as well as information about regulations. Recycling tires into materials such as steel-free crumb rubber and fine rubber powder used to be a profitable venture; however, due to market saturation in developed economies, tire recycling companies might want to shift their focus from raw materials to potentially higher-priced consumer goods made from recycled rubber or even virgin rubber which can be replaced by tire-derived materials.
In this Pre-Feasibility Study, Weibold considers the latest developments world-wide in utilizing ELT derived textile fraction for purposes other than incineration. The work will result into a list of companies, explaining the following: a) the methods for processing, b) the technical readiness level, c) any successful references, d) logistical considerations (low weight/volume vs. capital investment), e) and to what extent this application could be applied to the Client's specific situation.
The document is both an introduction to manufacturing of sewer covers and grids made out of end-of life tires (ELT) explaining input materials, processing techniques, manufacturers, suppliers of technology, prices, materials, characteristics, life expectancy, etc. It will be based on research and preparatory work performed for the specific situation of the customer in the target area.
