The Ministry of Commerce and Industry has shut four tire recycling factories in Riyadh, Jeddah and Khamis Mushayt (Saudi Arabia) for violating quality and safety regulations, Arab News reports. Inspectors from the ministry and the Saudi Standards, Metrology and Quality Organization (SASO) conducted the inspections. Eight factories were warned to improve their processes in six months to avoid closure. The teams inspected 17 tire recycling factories in six cities and found that the end-of-life tires used for recycling were unfit for this purpose. The factories lacked the required machinery, technically qualified workers and a performance checking system.
The Shiban end-of-life tire recycling factory continues its production of mini rubber pellets of various sizes, as reported by Libya Herald. Reportedly, the factory has received much praise and won the 2020 SME Expo award for best SME project. The business relies 100 percent on local workforce and local raw materials – which was cited for its winning the prize. The factory is referred to as a local champion and an example for others budding local SMEs. It has also helped Libya’s major environmental headache of discarded end-pf-life tires which filled landfills or were incinerated. It is hoped that Libya can now implement similar projects for the country’s waste and end-of-life materials which are currently buried in landfills. A similar tire recycling plant also exists in Benghazi, the Libya Herald reports.
