With over 1 billion waste tyres generated globally, barely 30% currently get recycled as per a recent EU Tire Report. Landfill bans also now cover 75% of scrap tyres in European countries, necessitating urgent solutions.
It is to tackle this pressing scenario that Gradeall showcased its portfolio of patented tyre reprocessing technologies.
The featured solutions included Gradeall’s tyre baler with 50-ton compaction bringing 5X bale density improvement alongside the tri-blade sidewall cutter that can shear 2000 car or 500 truck tyres daily into recyclable sections through industrial-grade automation.
Attendees at Tire Cologne 2023 recognised Gradeall’s spearheading role in enabling viable tyre-to-tyre recycling frameworks through equipment innovations. Industry associations have projected that achieving EU’s mandated 70% recycling target by 2025 would require EUR 2 billion investments into specialised reprocessing infrastructure over current capacities.
With offerings catering affordably from small workshops to large-scale recyclers in realising higher throughputs, unmatched bale densities and maximised raw material purity, Gradeall has positioned itself at the nucleus of the circular economy roadmap materialising.
