Tyre Recycling Grows in Kuwait

An article in The Arab Times states that the estimated 40 million used tyres that were moved from the Erhiya area in South Saad Al-Abdullah to the Salmi area will be recycled through the tyre recycling plant that aims to turn the used tyres into new environmentally friendly products.

Uses include tiles and pavers, with plans to develop the production and use of rubber modified bitumen for the Kuwaiti road network.

Eng. Alaa Hassan CEO of the plant, affiliated with the Abisco International General Trading Company, explained that the tyre recycling project began in 2016, and its production began in 2019.
