The characterisation and recycling of incinerated tyres
Rice, George Edward (2002) The characterisation and recycling of incinerated tyres. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
In excess of 1,000 million tyres are manufactured worldwide every year. The average tyre lasts for approximately 50,000 kilometres before it must be replaced. Each year in the UK approximately 37 million tyres reach the end of their useful life. The used tyre, which is almost identical to the replacement, then requires disposal. As the volume of road traffic increases alternative disposal routes are required to take up the resulting shortfall in capacity.
