Although there are a number of markets for recycled tyres in Australia, there is still large number that are not recycled.
Newer technologies like thermal processing, otherwise known as pyrolysis and gasification, are emerging for processing used tyres into separate various organic components. Although this technology has been around for some time, there is limited independent information to assist in informing decision makers and other interested parties.
Therefore TSA in conjunction with the Department of Environment and Science Queensland and Sustainability Victoria, have undertaken an independent study to establish an industry guide focused on increasing knowledge and identifying potential issues prior to approval, funding or the building of a plant in Australia.
