Title: End-of-Life Tire (ELT) Management Market: Top Treatment Technologies

End-of-Life Tire (ELT) Management Market Top
Treatment Technologies A tire reaches the
end-of-life stage when it can no longer be
utilized on vehicles after being regrooved or
re-treaded. All tires, including passenger cars,
trucks, airplanes, two-wheel, and off- road
tires, eventually become end-of-life tires
(ELTs). As per Inkwood Research, the global
end-of-life tire (ELT) management market is set
to progress with a CAGR of 4.87 between 2023 to
2032. Moreover, the market is expected to capture
a revenue share of 14795.57 million by 2032.
Environmental Impact of ELTs An Alarming Global
Concern Despite the recovery rate of scrap tires
estimated at 90 in Europe and the United States,
nearly 4 billion end-of-life tires (ELTs) are
currently in landfills as well as stockpiles
globally. Besides, this amount is set to increase
up to 5 billion by the year 2030. However, the
significant waste flow of end-of-life tires can
be detrimental to the environment as well as
human health since it leads to severe water, air,
and soil pollution problems. Furthermore, as per
the National Institutes of Health, this waste
flow is non-biodegradable and is categorized
under non-hazardous waste. Since tires do not
decompose, they release chemicals into the air,
ground, and water and subsequently alter the
ecosystem. Moreover, when tires pile up in
junkyards, methane gas is released into the air,
ultimately increasing the carbon footprint and
contributing to climate change. Significant
research and development initiatives have been
undertaken in the field of ELT management by tire
companies, ELT management enterprises, scientific
laboratories, government regulators, and
industrial partners to counter the ecological
impact of end-of-life tires. In addition to
finding effective and environmentally sound uses
for ELTs, they help establish new recovery
routes, comply with reporting obligations, and
promote the introduction of efficient product
standards. A New Lease of Life Major End-of-Life
Tire (ELT) Treatment Technologies
  • End-of-life tires (ELTs) facilitate sustainable
    development objectives by reducing natural
    resource depletion and environmental costs
    associated with reserve exploitation. Aligning
    with this, ELT treatment technologies and
    services are rapidly witnessing robust growth
    while gaining crucial market shares globally.
  • And on that note, here are the top end-of-life
    tire (ELT) treatment technologies along with
    their market projections
  • Rubber Remediation The market for ELT
    management by treatment technologies such as
    rubber remediation has rapidly evolved over the
    last decade. This is mainly ascribed to stringent
    regulations for environmental protection and the
    efforts established by companies to grant
    incentives to end markets for the usage of scrap
    tire-derived products.
  • Market Position According to Inkwood Research,
    the rubber remediation segment, under the
    treatment technology category, is set to capture
    the highest market share of 72.03 by 2032.
  • Moreover, government regulations are being
    enacted for the redressal of environmental
    concerns linked to illicitly disposed of or
    stockpiled tires. Besides, they are regarded as a
    common tire disposal method in several emerging
    and developed countries.
  • For example, in India, the Union environment
    ministrys new draft notification (2021) proposed
    to regulate the disposal of waste tires in India
    by enforcing the extended producer responsibility
    (EPR). As per the notification, manufacturers and
    importers of tires, including waste tires, must
    ensure that their products are recycled in line
    with the Indian governments standards.
  • Scrap Tire Treatment Scrap tires, owing to
    their size, shape, and associated environmental
    hazards, present both difficult and expensive
    challenges for entities responsible for
    overseeing their management.
  • In this regard, some of the major problems
    associated with scrap tires include fire hazards
    when improperly stockpiled, emission of dangerous
    oils as well as soot into air and water bodies
    when illegally burnt, and breeding grounds for
    snakes, ticks, rats, and various other vectors.
    These factors, in turn, play an essential role in
    facilitating the need for scrap tire treatment
    and recycling.
  • Market Position Scrap tire treatment is expected
    to be the fastest-growing treatment technology,
    growing with a CAGR of 5.26 by 2032, as per
    Inkwood Researchs analysis.
  • Inkwood Research has further classified the
    treatment technology category into the following
  • While major investment projects for scrap tire
    treatment and rubber recycling technologies
    operate under private ownership, most are
    classified under the mechanical, thermal, and
    cryogenic technology treatment categories
  • o Mechanical Technology Mechanical treatment
    technologies constitute a crucial sector of the
    scrap tire management sector. This treatment
    technology is expected to witness notable growth
    in the overall scrap tire economy, given the

  • volume of scrap tires produced globally, as well
    as stringent environmental legislation adopted by
    nations to avoid their direct disposal in
  • Furthermore, scrap tire mechanical treatment
    processes, as well as services, are projected to
    generate strong opportunities for several
    developing countries mainly due to the low cost
    of operation and the simplicity of processes.
    Accordingly, Inkwood Research estimates that the
    mechanical technology segment under the scrap
    tire treatment category is set to grow with the
    highest CAGR of 5.42 during the forecast period
    of 2023 to 2032.
  • Thermal Technology Thermal technologies are
    characterized as a group of commonly used
    processes for scrap tire processing. They are
    aimed at decomposing scrap tires either in the
    absence or the lack of oxygen. As per Inkwood
    Research, the thermal technology segment, under
    the scrap tire treatment segment, is expected to
    progress with a CAGR of 4.88 during the forecast
  • The pyrolysis process, in this regard, is one of
    the most commonly-used thermal destruction
    technologies by ELT management companies for
    scrap tire management. For instance, Scandinavian
    Enviro Systems AB (Sweden), through its patented
    pyrolysis technology, recovers steel, carbon
    black, oil, and gas from waste tires.
  • Cryogenic Technology Compared to mechanical and
    thermal processing, the cryogenic method is more
    precise as well as predictable and also produces
    the finest product. Several leading players are
    also leveraging this technology for the efficient
    treatment of ELTs. For example, Lehigh
    Technologies Inc (United States) manufactures its
    products using end-of-life tire materials and
    post-industrial rubber through the companys
    proprietary cryogenic turbo mill technology.
  • The decrease in land availability for landfills,
    the need to reduce worker exposure and potential
    liability, and increased awareness of
    environmental safety have scaled scrap tire
    management technologies to new heights. And
    taking energy production and new material
    applications into account, these aspects are set
    to play a pivotal role in augmenting the global
    end-of-life (ELT) management market during the
    forecast years.
  • Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
  • How do waste tires impact human health?
  • A Waste tires take up valuable space in
    landfills, thus creating breeding grounds for
    mosquitoes. This exposes communities to health
    risks, such as West Nile Virus, Encephalitis, and
    Zika Virus.
  • What do thermal technologies for scrap tire
    treatments primarily entail?
  • A Thermal technologies for scrap tire treatments
    mainly include the pyrolysis process,
    thermochemical process, and thermal
