The importance of tyre recycling
Do you know how long it takes for a tyre to degrade? 10 centuries, no more and no less.
Well, every year we discard about 300,000 tonnes of tyres. But once they have been spent, what do we do with them? This is a big ecological problem that concerns us all. If tyres are not properly recycled a serious environmental problem is created.
In fact, there are still seas and black seas in our country of thousands of tonnes of used tyres that have not been properly recycled. They are an ideal focus for the proliferation of bugs, rats and other harmful animals, since the stagnant water in the tires favors the reproduction of mosquitoes up to 4,000 times more than in nature where they are a focus of infection. Apart from the fact that, let’s not forget, they represent a high direct risk factor in the generation and spread of fires.
Do you know the 3R of recycling?
They consist of 3 small gestures that if we all joined in making them we would gain a lot for the planet and for the future.
REDUCE your consumption
If we all took more care of our tyres, we would be doing our bit. It’s as easy as checking tyre pressure, alignment and not driving aggressively. This way the tyres would last us up to 20% longer and we would also save up to 5% on fuel as it is more ecological, economical and safe.
We can change the tread of the tyre and thus extend its service life. The result is a tyre with almost the same quality as a new, cheaper tyre. This practice is very common in countries such as Denmark or Switzerland, historically very conscious of sustainability and care of the environment.
Tyres that are no longer usable can be used to develop new products, such as guard rails, pipes or even decorative products. If not, check out our article on 20 creative ideas for recycling tyres (enlace a https://transvolando.es/20-ideas-creativas-reciclaje-neumaticos/)
