Tire Recycling in the Middle East
In July/ August 2006 a new tire recycling
plant has been installed in the free zone Jordan.
tire recycling plant can process Truck- and Car tires to rubber
granulate, capacity approx. 3 metric ton input per hour. This
corresponds to approx. 500 Car tires per hour or 1 million car
tires per year.
The owner of the plant, Advanced Technical
Recycling Materials CO. ltd. (ATRM) expects to run the plant in
2 – 3 shifts beginning of next year meaning an expected
production capacity of up to 3 million car tires per year.
The ATRM tire recycling plant produces
high quality rubber granulate and powder for various products
like Rubber Mats, Molded products, Sound- and Vibration
insulation, Underlay for the carpet industries and rubber
components for the car industries. The rubber granulate can also
be used for the Asphalt industries. This is used with success in
the USA where approx. 90% of the roads in the states of
California and Phoenix are built with rubber granulate mixed in
the asphalt. The great benefit of this is the mainly the noise
reduction and the savings in maintenance, compared to normal
