Rubber mastication plays a crucial role in the production of various rubber products, including tires, belts, hoses, gaskets, and seals. By effectively masticating the rubber, manufacturers can achieve better mixing of additives, such as fillers, accelerators, and curing agents, resulting in improved properties like strength, flexibility, and durability in the final rubber product.
The global plastic recycling market refers to the industry that collects, processes, and converts used plastic products into new plastic materials. This market is driven by the growing concern for environmental sustainability and the need to reduce plastic waste.
Tyre pyrolysis is the process of using heat in the absence of oxygen to break down used tires into their basic components. The process involves heating the tires to a high temperature, typically between 300 and 500 degrees Celsius, in a reactor vessel.
A study by the Center for International Environmental Law (CIEL) estimates that plastic packaging alone is responsible for around 1.8 billion metric tons of CO2 equivalent emissions per year, which is roughly equivalent to the emissions from 189 coal-fired power plants
