Recycling of used tires in Japan
The recycling rate of used tires in Japan is much higher than that in other countries. However, it is necessary to achieve light weight and high performance of tires that match the high performance of automobiles year by year. Consequently, tire material separation and reutilization
for recycling are getting extremely difficult. For this reason, the tire manufacturers and tire dealers in Japan are working together to develop an effective disposal method and disposal direction of used tires.
