German chemical company Evonik helps using recycled tires in road construction
According to Evonik, it is possible to get valuable products out of recycled tires, thus, it is not correct to treat tires as waste. The business also states that by providing old tires with second life in road projects, they get rid of disposal issue and prevent burning of tires. Additionally, Evonik manufactures products for surfacing roads using mix of processed plastics. The tests and monitoring procedures will be ongoing, however, the authorities now believe that the plastic and rubber roads that contain recycled materials such as tires will prove to be more durable and better in comparison to the conventional asphalt, as the latter has a high CO2 footprint.
