The Tyre Recovery Association (TRA) in the United Kingdom reports that this autumn could bring with it a new rash of end-of-life tyre dumping and site abandonment. Several factors are in play at this present time which the public, UK’s regulators and the tyre trade itself should be aware, according to the TRA. First and foremost ‘gate’ prices – typical amount charged by end-of-life tyre recyclers and others to accept old tyres from those providing a collection-only service – have almost doubled since the start of the year as market conditions have hardened, indications are that they will remain at these new levels.
The UK’s Tyre Recovery Association (TRA) reports that the announcement by the Environment Agency that it has approved a new time-limited Regulatory Position Statement (RPS 238) allowing enhanced materials storage at dockside has been widely welcomed by TRA members. The RPS will permit up to 5000 tons of PAS107-processed and compliant material to be stored portside in secure conditions prior to bulk loading and shipment primarily for use as tyre-derived fuel overseas.
BASF SE – one of the largest producers and marketers of chemicals and related products in the world – is to invest €16 million into a German pyrolysis operator Pyrum Innovations AG – a technology company specialized in the pyrolysis of end-of-life tires, headquartered in Dillingen/Saar, Germany – as part of its ChemCycling™ project, which aims at sourcing pyrolysis oil from end-of-life tires as additional raw material source next to oil from mixed plastic waste.
