Re: [GreenYes] Tire Management Hierarchy
Haven't worked it out exactly, but I've heard folks 
who have looked into the generation of scrap tires 
for their state say that rubber modified asphalt 
(RMA) could use most, if not all, the scrap tires 
they generate. It would depend on the rate of new 
road building, resurfacing and repairing, of course, 
but RMA would certainly be a huge one for scrap 
tires. Another significant use that is sure to come 
about sooner or later is closed loop recycling back 
into new tires. Several of the major tire 
manufacturers are currently working hard on recycled-
content.
