UB develops plan for recycled tires

KATE BOWES – Staff Writer

UB is embarking on a $1.8 million project to research possible uses for recycled tires, with funding from Empire State Development, New York State’s leading economic development agency.

According to Dr. A. Scott Weber, director of the Center for Integrated Waste Management, the department will be researching and identifying types of markets that can utilize recycled “tire chips” as part of the New York State Tire Derived Aggregate Program.

“The goal of the program is to find alternative uses (of tires) that have applications in civil engineering projects,” Weber said.

With this project, UB will be racing to the forefront of research on the uses of tire chips and the markets to which the recycled material can be applied.

“Tire aggregate is already used in a number of states, including New York,” Weber said. “Our goal is to look for new applications and fill the information gaps.”
