Explain your idea in details:

Tyre Recycling rubber is called RUBBER CRUMB which is suitable for production of another product. By recycling Tyre, we help the environment by contribute to solving pollutions,easing the energy shortage and create huge economic benefits in Nigeria and Africa, instead of piling up in the local landfill and potentially starting a hazardous fire filled with pollutant and as well become member of fast growing industries. Recycled tyre can be broken down for use in other products, and if the used Tyre are still in good condition it can be re-tread, which gives them additional life where they can be resold at cheaper price compare to new. Crumb rubber is high quality rubber products which are shred and broken down into 3/8.inches (.95cm) particle size and its can be re-used by many industries, especially by building materials industries for constructions (Rubber asphalts) which are used in countries like Canada, America and European countries in construction of their roads, because its minimize the road noise while driving and more durable than ordinary asphalt. Finer synthetic and natural rubber (after treatment) can be used to produce tiles and tiles adhesives, mixing with asphalt, sport surface construction (basketball court, football pitch, Long-tennis pitch,running tracks, noise and vibration insulation, Playgrounds for children and schools,rubber mulch, mud flaps, fuel, patio block, rubber Matt.etc ). Rubber products determined the equipment plants involved but basically includes; i. Tyre cutter. ii. Tyre shredder. iii. bead remover. FOR TILES MAKING. Tiles making required tiles production plants which includes: Mixer: To mix crumbs rubber, Pigments colorant (to gives rubber any color needed) and Epoxy glue (to make it solid). Moles: Gives it form and designs, sizes and shapes. Dryers etc. Roads, floors & sport surfaces wet-pour construction needed Mixer, Trowel and Trowel lubricant etc. Condemned used tyre consist 70% of crumb rubber,15% fibre and 15% metal. These gives us extra marketable products.

Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development

By recycling used and condemned tyre, it will reduced environmental pollution created to air, water and lands which could affect our life through burning or inappropriate disposal. And it will help to solve tyre waste disposal problems and as well as helping have more useful product produce in our country by making use of cheap and availability rubber crumbs, fibre, and iron derived from the recycled tyres. The idea will reduced the problem of unemployment for citizen, because it will create more job in our society, for factory workers, people in charge of sourcing for old tyres and more entrepreneur will rise in uses of rubber crumb for production of product alternatives to imported rubber-products(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6kD9YJ9iSfc). Rubber crumbs are made of high qualities rubber, its suitable for any rubber products ( high and low density), which can be supplied and exported to industries which making uses of rubbers, as alternatives to virgin rubber. Rubber crumbs are cheaper compared to virgin rubber, because it derived from raw materials which are available everywhere for free/penny cost. These will make it more profitable and marketable for exportation, industries and entrepreneurs that are uses rubbers as an alternatives to costly virgin rubber and its will reduced the cost of their production. Vehicle Tyre production industries preferred crumbs rubber from recycled Tyre for their production, because it will minimize the cost, production process and time, and also more cheaper compare to making uses of virgin rubber. Availability of crumbs rubber will attract more Tyre production industries and rubber user companies and entrepreneur to venture into business in my country and nearby countries, and will add to creating more jobs in our environment. More impacts are : Marketable Recycled Product. Converting Waste to energy. Maintain Natural resources. Create effective secondary market for tyres. No more Tyre landfills. Premium grade output materials. Cheap production of rubber. Cost effective process. Etc

Plans for implementation and sustainability

Starting Tyre recycling business is just like any recycling business, is demanding but highly profitable. Much more than making profit, because those that are in Tyre recycling business are part of people contributing to the reduction of hazardous material from our environment; of a truth used Tyre constitute nuisance in our environment and these attract access grants from government and international agencies.

Market feasibility studies: This help me to get first hand information on what its take to successfully launch tyre recycling business in my country, cost implication, how to source for the used tyres, and create market channels for the end products. This helped me to know the products that are highly demand in market e.g Rubber tiles and interlocking, Rubber asphalts, Rubber playgrouds, rubber mixed with cements,sport surfaces and commercial flooring.

Sources for capital: Tyre recycling business are capital intensive, hoping supports from government, investors and international agencies in financing one of the fastest growing industries to be firstly established in Africa. start-up capital needed to rent and lease land facility big enough building tyre recycling plant, setting up recycling plants, purchase of trucks and all equipments needed for this type of business.

Source for supply of Used tyres: plans to get used tyres free and at cheaper rates. plans has been made to negotiate with the Federal and states waste management board and vulcanizes arounds for supplies of condemned tyres.

Secure Facility and Equipments Tyre Recycling Plant: I have Tyre recycling plants and Tiles making Plant supplier which are ready work in-hand with me. ALPHA SPK LLC (http://alfaspk.ru/english-version).  And Pigment colorant to gives rubber different color and adhesive gum chemicals are ready to be supplied by A1 RUBBER (http://a1rubber.com/),one of the best chemical supplier for production of Rubber tiles and interlocking, playgrounds, sport surfaces, commercial flooring etc.

Can tyres be molten and poured into moulds to make rubber flooring and similar products. If yes, kindly educate me how to go about it. I'm prepared to pay for the tuition. Thanks.

I am already recycling Used tyres in Lusada Ogun state. If you have anything about carbon black then we can do something. My number is 08093390001.
Have some problem in sales of Carbon black usage in Nigeria and there are some challanges in waste tyres also as the government is not helping.
