Recycling Rubber

Published on 06 February 2010 by in Rubber Tidbits


Rubber, being durable and safe, is put to a plethora of industrial use. The tire industry is the biggest user of rubber, be it artificial or natural. But, unfortunately, rubber cannot be destroyed easily and cannot be burned due to the toxic gases it emits while burning. Rubber recycle is the only solution to the problem. Most of the recycled rubber goes into the production of rubber granules which can be used as mulch for a wide range of operations.

The granulated rubber is best suited for agricultural operations. It keeps away pests, weeds etc and prevents soil moisture and nutrients from escaping through evaporation and erosion. Landscape mulch is a modern form of the monotonous rubber mulch which is used for landscaping purposes. Being available in different colors, they can add color to your garden.

The material is obtained by cleaning used rubber treads and removing impurities like chemical remnants etc by putting the treads through high temperature and pressure. The resultant product is environment friendly and safe. Once laid, it does not wash away or decay like other mulches. Organic mulches, once they decay, emit a foul smell, invite harmful insects and form an impenetrable layer under the surface soil.

Landscaper Mulch is increasingly been used across the globe these days as more and more people become alive to environmental issues and the importance of recycling as a means to save resources and energy. You also can join the campaign by way of buying and using the resultant product of rubber recycle.
