Ferrostaal: Tire-Recycling Plant in Mexico
Ferrostaal AG, Essen, Germany, will announce the commissioning of its first tyre-recycling plant in Mexico.
The customer is the operator of a major, nationwide chain of filling stations where drivers can bring their tyres for recycling. Thanks to the recycling plant, the customer can process approx. 1,500 kg of old tyres each hour, doubling its current capacity. Because there are considerable quantities of old tyres in Mexico, the need for recycling is extremely high. Rather than store the tyres in enormous landfills, they will now be processed into rubber granules instead. These granules can be used, for example, to surface sports fields and playgrounds, for soundproofing insulation or for hoses that water plants underground, directly at their roots.
Ferrostaal is a global provider of industrial services in plant construction and engineering. The company is continuing to expand its activities in the areas of recycling and environmental-technology, thereby making consistent use of its presence in more than 40 countries.
