Charles goodyear revolutionized the rubber industry in 1839 by inventing vulcanization.
We finishes the job by making de-vulcanization possible and making the rubber truly recyclable
When Charles Goodyear invented vulcanization in 1839, he gave birth to the modem rubber products industry.
Everything from car tyres and bumpers, shoe soles and doormats is made from vulcanised rubber (created by adding a number of chemicals, including sulphur, to virgin rubber). The process of vulcanisation creates rubber that is tougher, more durable and stronger.
The only problem with Mr. Goodyear’s wonderful invention is that vulcanised rubber is nearly impossible to recycle.
Until now that is.
The rubber industry has for decades faced a huge challenge: how to keep waste tyres from filling landfills, leaching into groundwater, poisoning marine life and providing a perfect breeding ground for mosquitoes and other disease carrying insects. In the developing world hundreds of thousands of people catch dengue fever, West Nile Virus and malaria from insects that breed in tyre dumb.
Last year 1,3 billion tyres were thrown away, so the problem is clearly acute and getting wore. One ‘solution’ is to burn tyres as a replacement fuel for coal. However, governments in several parts of the world believe that burning tyres causes a whole new raft of environmental problems. As our eommitment for creating a better world, our company provides an environmentally friendly solution for waste tyres.
