China’s tyre recycling industry lags behind
In recent years, authorities in many regions of China have put waste tyre recycling on their agenda. Recycling waste tyres is a reusable resource that aligns with China’s current green and sustainable development policy and can bring profits to tyre companies. Tyrepress China notes that ZC Rubber, Linglong, Doublestar and other tyre manufacturers have begun to lay out their plans in this industry. For example, in December 2022, Linglong Anhui Manufacturing Base announced that it was preparing to launch a project to recycle 30,000 tons of waste tyres annually and its feasibility study provides numerous insights into the development of the wider Chinese tyre recycling business.
