Abstract:

The purpose of this study was to identify and evaluate the technical and economic feasibility of various methods of tire disposal including the use of a mobile scrap tire disposal unit for the Armys application. The quantities and approximate locations of scrap tires in the U.S. Army were identified via a questionnaire. A scrap tire disposal system was conceived consisting of presently available tire disposal and recycling processes and used in a logical approach to arrive at several most practical process alternatives. Over thirty processes for the disposal of tires and their relationships to each other were investigated. Four process alternatives involving combinations of these processes were recommended for further investigation with respect to the local economic picture and current disposal practices at each Army installation.
