Boost for tyre recycling on cards

Eldan to reveal plans at tyrexpo India

Eldan Recycling aims to influence tyre recycling attitudes.

Danish recycling equipment supplier Eldan Recycling is planning to use July’s Tyrexpo India exhibition to influence the Indian industry’s attitudes to tyre recycling.  

Eldan has been active in the development and manufacturing of tyre recycling equipment for more than 25 years.

Its first complete tyre granulation plant was installed 20 years ago; since then over 200 plants have been installed all over the world, including two complete tyre recycling plants in Mumbai.

Eldan’s area sales manager, Henning Nørgaard, says: “The rapid expansion of the Indian tyre market is a major opportunity for tyre recycling.

"We want to play our part by bringing our proven technology into India, building on recent successful installations in Mumbai.

"It is important that recyclers and manufacturers plan ahead for changes in the market, like the growth of radial tyres, which in future years will place more emphasis on steel recovery and recycling.

"We attended Tyrexpo India in 2011 and the response far exceeded our expectations, so we are very confident that this year’s show will prove to be just as successful,” Nørgaard said.

Paul Farrant, managing director of Tyrexpo India organiser ECI International, says: “Tyre recycling is an important area for us to cover, so Eldan’s return to the exhibition is warmly welcomed.  

"With over a quarter of a century’s involvement in tyre recycling on a global scale, they will bring a vast amount of experience and expertise to the show.”

Explaining more about Eldan’s strategy for India, Nørgaard said: “Firstly, the use of private cars is expanding, so there’s going to be more tyres to recycle.

"Secondly, there is still a lot happening in the application areas that use materials produced from recycled tyres.

"Thirdly, there is a sustained move towards radial tyres, which contain steel and textile, instead of the traditional Indian bias ply nylon tyres.

“It has been predicted that by 2015, about 45% of these tyres will contain steel.

"Even though a lot of tyre manufacturers already have recycling equipment, they are going to have to extend their lines to include steel cleaning,” Henning predicted.
