This review primarily covers scrap tire disposal processes used, or suggested for use, in the U.S.A.
Sufficient statistical data are presented to define the magnitude of the scrap tire disposal problem.
The constraints of an ideal solution are presented as a basis for a critical review of current and proposed scrap tire disposal procedures.
Our conclusion is that no one scrap tire disposal procedure is so outstanding as to be used exclusively to handle the problem. Geographic location and economics will dictate which scrap tire disposal procedure will be used.
