Industrial and speciality gas products supplier Air Products is intensifying the marketing of its tyre and rubber recycling solutions.

Engineering News previously reported that a levy of R2.30/kg would be introduced on new tyres manufactured in or imported into South Africa from February 1 to pay for the collection and recycling of waste tyres.

“We have two tyre waste recycling solutions, namely the cryogenic grinding systems, which use liquid nitrogen to grind rubber and tyres into small particles to be recycled and reused in many different ways.

“The other solution is the oxygen-enrich- ment solution within the cement industry, which is a flexible, efficient and cost-effective technology that also assists in improving profitability,” says Air Products bulk gas business unit national sales manager Sachin Kulkarni.

He adds that the oxygen-enrichment solution is applicable to all types of kilns – the wet, long, dry, preheater and precalciner types. “The oxygen solution can also be used to improve combustion inside the kilns, reduce emissions, attain more consistent clinker quality and increase the use of alter- native fuels by between 30% and 80%.”

The company reports that it has been offering these solutions to the South African market over the past ten years on a trial basis. But with the new levy from the Depart- ment of Water and Environmental Affairs, it expects more enquiries from tyre and rubber companies.

By ensuring that it stays a market leader in the industry, Air Products has committed itself to providing its clients with the necessary sales engagement and good service delivery.

“The challenges that previously affected the growth and need for such solutions in the market were the lack of a support system. “But now we witness willingness from industry players, especially in the cement kilns industry, to provide the necessary supply chain to support the growth of the market. “With the new legislation, there will also be a need for such solutions on a larger scale,” says Kulkarni.

Meanwhile, he adds that the company has always been passionate about skills development.

“On a yearly basis, we support trainee graduates through our training programme; we also offer bursaries to university students and provide current employees with the necessary support to further their studies, provided the company requires such skills,” explains Kulkarni.
