The recycling of tires begins when a group of people, an institution or an industry take the initiative to collect in a massive and constant way the out of use tires that have been discarded, then these old tires will be destroyed by a tire crushing equipment and from there they will continue with a process of increasingly smaller cuts, until they reach the desired size or texture according to the purpose or application to which this recycling is destined.
According to statistics, annually one billion tires are produced in the world and unfortunately among the qualities offered by a tire is not the capacity of its degradation, estimating that a used tire, which is not managed properly, could last more than a thousand years to disappear, which quickly turns it into an environmental problem that goes against human health and ecology, caused by inadequate provision. This is where recycling of tires must become a task of mass interest, starting with the awareness of the problem caused by the irresponsible disposal of a tire that has already met its known useful life and also adding more and more support to all Manufacturing sectors that promote the use of products derived from rubber from recycled tires.
A recycled tire has an endless number of uses that help not only to maintain the environmental balance but also promote the economy since there are many products molded 99.9% based on recycled tires. Maybe you did not know, but the raw material that results from a responsible work of recycling is used for various uses from the construction of decorative floors and playgrounds, gardening, stables, sports courts and ecological asphalt, which offers a better performance than traditional asphalting, all these uses in turn generate greater comfort than when they are built with conventional materials, since rubber padding offers a perfect support for shock absorption, among many other benefits. At ECO Green Equipment we have prepared this article so you can learn a little more about the uses and applications of recycling of tires out of use.
SOME USES AND APPLICATIONS OF TIRE RECYCLING
As a filler for artificial grass:
The use of recycled tire granules as a filler in sports fields, mainly used in sports such as football, tennis or football among others has great advantages, by achieving a cushioning effect that significantly reduces the player’s injuries and allows the player to same play more effectively.
For courts and sports courts:
Offering the same cushioning properties as artificial turf padding in which the player is protected from injury, the on-site casting technique allows for the paving of athletic tracks and other types of court using the recycled tire granule in specific sizes. Always respecting the official guidelines required in each sports federation.
For road paving:
This is another of the most widespread uses of tire recycling. The road paving developed with rubber granule compound to ensure that the tracks remain without bumps, cracks, or deformations for a long time, also has the great advantage of providing a more comfortable route for drivers.
For the manufacture of speed reducers:
In this use, the most used raw material is rubber powder. The speed reducers manufactured by means of the discarded tire granule are highly effective. It is molding significantly reduces the impacts caused to the vehicle and at the same time increases safety on tracks. The cushioning is its main characteristic.

If your interest is to acquire an out-of-use recycling system you can contact us now through the contact form or through our telephone numbers. You can also visit our equipment section directly where you will find more information about each of the machines we manufacture.
For the development of floor slabs:
This is one of the main uses of granules made of steel and fiber-free rubber, which when mixed with resins and dyes allows the molding of slabs of different shapes, textures, and colors used in a large number of areas to decorate the interior and exterior spaces. These slabs offer several advantages such as fall protection and easy installation.
For the production of Mulch of recycled tires:
Mulch is created using dyes mixed with asymmetric granules of steel-free rubber, is an ideal material for garden decorations, playgrounds and open spaces. This product, which is preferred by landscapers, prevents the proliferation of fungi and the growth of unwanted weeds in the areas where it is applied.
For the floors of playgrounds:
You can pave floor playgrounds with designs and figures made directly on the paved surface through the technique of casting in situ, which offers a wide creative freedom to design spaces that are friendly and safe for children. These floors have the same cushioning properties as mentioned above and prevent injuries to children that fall in these areas of play while protecting them from scratches.
For stables floors:
The benefits of cushioning rubber floors extend to the animal world. The stable floors, like farms in general, benefit from the recycling of discarded tires. The molded cobbles based on granules of rubber, dye, and resin have become an optimal solution in the areas where these animals coexist. The reduction of stress in horses and cattle is one of the main benefits of this type of flooring.
Currently there are many industries that get their raw material from the recycling of tires out of use, it is a trend that came to stay and the fact that it is in its early stages predicts that more and more eco-entrepreneurs will be getting involved in this attractive market that not only produces economic benefits but also a significant contribution to the environment.
