We can setup the Tyre Recycling Plant for you

Developing a sustainable workflow and an environmentally friendly process is consequential to our planet. The automotive industry has been booming, which lead to a major waste problem with end-of-life tyres (ELTs). As tyres slowly degrade in landfill, there was a need for the establishment of a modern plant for the recycling of ELTs. QACO has the perfect plan to transform ELTs into recycled products that can be used for various purposes. Modernization doesn’t have to cast mother Earth.

QACO has expertise of installing fully functional Tyre Recycling Plants. QACO has served as the main contractor to establish such a facility for ATR (Australian Tyre Recyclers). Starting from

Feasibility Report for Tyre Recycling

The process starts with RnD, the business model, legal requirements, technical brief, existing tyre recycler’s facilities data, and cost benefit analysis.

Suitable Place

Local Australian authorities and EPA have very for specific requirements for tyre recycling industry.

Therefore a suitable place for the plant in terms of local council’s requirements, zoning of development, logistics is a key part of the recycling facility.

Tendering for Plant and Equipment

On behalf of our customers, we do

  • Design specification

  • Evaluation of suppliers

  • Design basis

  • Project plan

Procurement of Recycling Technology & Support Equipment

We procure recycling technology from international manufacturers such as Chinese, Swedish, German and manufactures. We work within your budget and requirements. Major components to purchase are:

  • Plant and equipment

  • Weighbridge

  • Allied machinery

Development Application

The permission to construct a tyre recycling facility comes with certain obligations. To fulfil them QACO has complete experience and expertise in doing the following:

  • Identification of specific requirements for Strathfield council

  • Engagement of EPA consultant

  • Environmental impact assessment

  • Project summary for SEAR (Secretary’s Environmental Assessment Requirements) report

  • Subcontracting for acoustic, vibration, storm water, fire, traffic and transport, air quality and electrolysis studies as per EPA requirements.

  • Submission of development application

Obtaining Occupation Certificate

This step involves:

  • Engagement of private certifying authority PCA

  • Final engineering designs for infrastructure development (as per DA outcome)

  • Construction SWMS

  • Engagement of Civil Works contractors

  • Supervision of civil work

Plant Installation

This is the most technical stage of the project that requires assembling the machinery, troubleshooting and deep engineering knowledge. At QACO we possess expertise to complete step listed below with complete mastery.

  • Alignment of machinery

  • Engagement of electrical contractor

  • Dry testing of plant

  • Cold commissioning

  • Pledging with AusGrid for electrical design and installation

  • Hot commissioning

  • Machine reliability analysis

  • Process Proof


We provide complete solution i-e Hardware + Software. Two major components of software applications are:

  • Weighbridge Management System

  • Production Control System

  • Our software solutions are EPA compliant and manage operations completely from receiving the tyres, real-time warehouse status, products produced, supplier orders, customer orders, bar-code printing, batching etc.

Documentation and Training

The project doesn’t complete with the previous step, it goes beyond it. Not only we ensure that everything runs smoothly, we also provide training and assistance for ongoing processes. We acquire the necessary certificates that reflect upon the quality. We also provide training to maintain the standards set by EPA and other government bodies.

  • Operational manual

  • ISO 9001: 2015 QMS certification

  • Maintenance Manual

  • Basic health and safety training

  • Operation parameters and set point

For decades, tyres were simply left at landfills at the end of their product life – a very unsustainable disposal solution, which is unfortunately still widely used throughout the world. Later, the energy content of end-of-life tyres was recovered through incineration in cement kilns. This was clearly a step forward in comparison with landfilling, but the good raw materials were destroyed, and only a small fraction of the energy originally invested in the production of a tyre was recovered.

he smartest and most sustainable solution is material recycling, where end-of-life tyres are processed into new, high-quality raw materials for the substitution of virgin rubber and steel.

Tyres are made from scarce resources. In future, the supply of virgin steel will be limited. The production of natural rubber involves deforestation of rainforests, leading to a lack of biological diversity. Rainforests absorb more CO2 than rubber plantations, and when rainforests are deforested in favour of new rubber plantations, less CO2 is thus absorbed from the atmosphere. Material recycling is, therefore, the most effective way to mitigate all these destructive problems.
