Whole Tire Recycling

The fast, easy, and profitable way to reduce fossil fuel costs and emissions.


After many years of study, the US EPA has concluded that the use of scrap tires as fuel in cement kilns represents one of its HIGHEST AND BEST uses.

Both the RUBBER MANUFACTURERS ASSOCIATION and the PORTLAND CEMENT ASSOCIATION have important things to say about the benefits of using scrap tires as fuel in Cement kilns. Click on their logos above to see how this important waste to energy use can benefit you.

Like fossil fuels such as coal, oil, and natural gas, tires are rich in hydrocarbons. Tens of millions of used tires are generated annually in the United States. By simply disposing of these tires, we miss an important recycling opportunity: the chance to recover their energy and conserve our resources of fossil fuels. Cement making is an ideal process for recovering the energy from whole scrap tires. The intense heat of the kiln ensures complete destruction. There is no smoke or visible emissions from the tires. In fact, because tires burn cleaner than coal, the use of tires as fuel can actually reduce certain emissions.
