United Kingdom Waste Tire Construction Of An Environmental Friendly Rubber Road
Science times, November 28, 2006 United Kingdom engineers came up with an environmentally friendly and can be good ways to solve traffic jams – laying rubber pavements. This kind of "soft" road is made from discarded automobile tires of panels, and then laid in the United Kingdom around the now-abandoned railroad tracks. According to the project company says new laying system will be able to resolve every year around the world (United Kingdom waste tires up to 50 million per year) of waste tire recycle.
According to the United Kingdom Broadcasting Corporation, launched in July 2006 EU laws requiring landfill burial or incineration of waste tires to be offences, which makes these tires looks very attractive.
New pavement system developed by HoldFast rubber company. Engineers said the new rubber on the road you can drive cars and trolleys, speeds of up to 80-kilometer. Engineering staff apply the rubber to first laying a sidewalk and a railway intersection. Now, they have put this concept into practice, banpu is chain of low-cost rubber in the middle of abandoned railroad tracks.
Every 1.6 km of the tracks need to lay 354000 tons of waste tires in the Middle pieces. Each Panel is to tire fragments, and contamination during the manufacturing process is very low. Rest Fund (Wrap) funded by the engineering is in Northamptonshire, Bryant has built a 300-metre long model pavement. Wrap SteveWaite says: "this is a unique and interesting project, it will use the United Kingdom recovered numerous rubber tires. ”
HoldFast PeterSmith said: "construction of a 300-metre road need 4 people in 3 days time. Panel length will be manufactured after 3 times now, so 4 people can be in a 5 day period runs up to 900 m long way. ”
Finally, add rubber plate with this technology will be deprecated in the railway network to establish a highway network. Engineers noted that they did not plan on a disused railway in the country also built the road. Rubber road connecting satellite cities around the city will be able to demonstrate its low-cost advantage. "And the construction of the 1-mile compared to ordinary roads need to spend £ 20 million, we need only spend £ 1.4 million. "Smith said.
