Waste tyre recycling and shredding is the process of repurposing tyres that are no longer suitable for use on vehicles due to wear or irreparable damage. These tyres are a challenging source of waste, due to the large volume produced, the durability of the tyres, and the components in the tyre that are ecologically problematic. UKR is a biotechnology solutions provider specialising in the recycling of end of life tyres through the process of Tyre Shredding and Separation.
This new technology recycles 100% of waste tyres and UKR believes that Tyre Shredding will provide ‘the end of life’ solution to what is an ever-increasing problem in ‘what to do with tyres’ at the end of their use.
