Looking at junkyards full of old tires, you come to understand that car owners of Vladivostok change their tires a lot. Sometimes, they set these tires on fire which pollutes the air greatly. Two years ago they decided to solve this problem by opening a tire recycling factory where they could turn old needless tires into a new stadium track surface. So, here it is!
At the factory they accept tires of all sizes for three rubles (30 cents) for a kilogram.
A ground in front of the factory.
They accept damaged tires too. The only condition is that they should have no paint and oil spots and burning marks.
The production process is harmless and environmentally safe. Before recycling, they pull out the metal wire.
They cut the middle part of the tire out with the help of this equipment.
This is the iron wire they pull out.
They put tire cores aside.
Then they cut the tire into 10-kilogram pieces, which later go to the hydraulic shearing machine.
Pieces of tires go to the conveyor one by one.
