Summary This is an expert overview on the topic of tyre recycling. It summarises current practices and the factors that have contributed to their growth and efficacy as viable, economically and environmentally sound methods of dealing with post-consumer tyres. There are around 1 billion tyres produced each year across the globe. It is estimated that for every tyre sold another joins the waste stream.
