WHAT'S WRONG WITH TIRES
The number of cars in the world is growing every year. 77.6 million new passenger cars and light commercial vehicles were sold in 2020, according to LMC Automotive. The number of tires increases with them. Moreover, if the average lifespan of one ordinary car is about 13 years, then the tire has only five or six. And this is one of the most problematic types of waste. First, for many years, tires were sent to landfills, where they remained for a long time. Secondly, this is a bulk waste that requires significant areas. Thirdly, tires are fire hazardous, and when they burn, they emit a lot of toxic substances.
However, the solution to the problem is known – recycling.
