Tire recycling

Tire waste recycling is a very important sector for the sustainable development of our global economy. In addition, the government and international development agencies strongly support the recovery of investment in Africa. They provide economic and financial incentive programs for investment recovery. For African decision makers, tire recycling is a very profitable business idea. The number of cars and trucks in all African countries is increasing. In Nigeria, there are more than 12 million cars. In Kenya, this number exceeds 3 million. The tires can be used for about 4 years. This means that there are more than 12 million waste tires in Nigeria alone. Government incentives and funds from international development organizations have promoted investment in waste tire recycling facilities.

The South African Recycling and Economic Development Initiative REDISA is responsible for a program to collect and recycle used tires in Africa. Other countries in sub-Saharan Africa also have grants for sustainable development. Investors in sub-Saharan Africa will benefit greatly from investing in the waste tire recycling business. They must comply with government plans and funding from international development organizations. The final materials for recycled tires are rubber and scrap cables. They can be sold on the aftermarket. In addition, companies can make money from government subsidies.
