Recycling machinery maker Eldan Recycling A/S delivered and installed its first complete tyre recycling plant back in 1991. Almost 20 years later, company representatives told Tyres & Accessories that Eldan has developed and optimised its process to “obtain the best possible purity of the rubber granulate.” This means granulate that is 99.9 per cent free of liberated steel and textile. According to the company, this purity is obtained through specially built equipment such as classifiers and aspirators that operate by means of the “air flow” principle. Another reason for the positive results is said to be the company’s emphasis on modular design.

The company specialises in machinery aimed at the tyre business, but also helps with this disposal of Dry and Jelly Cable Scrap; Rejected Die Cast Magnesium; Aluminium Scrap; and Waste Electronic and Electric Equipment (WEEE).
