How Hitec Solves the Scrap Tire Problem

The Problem

OTR tire manufacturers estimate 400 million pounds of large OTR tires are scrapped in the U.S. each year.
 

Most OTR tires are scrapped and stored on-site where used.
 

300 million car and light truck tires are scrapped each year in the U.S.


The UN Conference on Environment and Development predicts 4-5 times more solid waste in the world by 2025.


The UN conference on Environment and Development estimates buried tires will pollute for over 100 years.


Only 23% of scrap tires are recycled worldwide.


Approximately 50% of all scrap car and truck tires are open buned as tire derived fuel (TDF) in power plants, mills and kilns.


Proposed EPA regulations and Cap & Trade legislation could reduce the amount of TDF burned woldwide.


Tire dumps are fire and health hazards.
