The speakers will share their reports on how markets for recycled tire products will be expanded. Attendees will learn which recycled rubber products may see the greatest demand in the new decade.
Critics of the grant programs launched by New Zealand authorities over the decade expressed their opinion that the funded measures failed to achieve outstanding results and was moving not fast enough. Some $20 million have been provided earlier to fight scrap tire issue in the state by the Government's Waste Minimisation Fund. However, tire clearance efforts are taking place too slow. The new group Accountability Action responsible for clearance of North Canterbury stockpile has also been accused of lack of progress.
A small Nile Delta village of Mit al-Harun in Egypt, located in some 70 kilometers north of Cairo, is known in the country as the most popular tire rubber recycling hub. Generations that are living here have learned how to manually recycle waste tires that are often seen dumped on the roadsides. People here wake up early morning and use sharpened knifes as they cut massive scrap tires that are further used as materials for surfacing projects, or as green fuel. In 2016, CCTV Africa paid a visit to Mit al-Harun’s tire recycling workshops.
