finally: An Environmental Solution for Scrap Mining Tires

how it works

Scrap industrial mining tires are difficult to manage because of their size and density. Traditional recycling equipment cannot handle these tires.

After years of research and development, Titan Tire Reclamation Corp has perfected a unique environmental solution to process giant scrap mining tires that have been accumulating in Alberta’s Oil Sands.
