Eldan delivers first tyre shredder to Venezuela

Venezuela – Danish recycling equipment manufacturer Eldan has delivered a shredder for large tyres to what it describes as the biggest retread manufacturer in Venezuela.

The company, which has hundreds of employees, processes mostly truck tyres and other large tyres that are retreaded to prolong their lifespan. Given that a proportion of the tyres is unfit for use, the Eldan Super Chopper is used as a first step towards the recovery of the rubber, steel and textiles.

This represents Eldan’s first sale into Venezuela. ‘And a very interesting order,’ acknowledges Eldan’s managing director Toni Reftman, ‘as Venezuela has been a very difficult market to penetrate.’

Earlier this year, Eldan started up a complete tyre recycling plant in Papua New Guinea. This facility processes all kinds of tyres, including truck tyres and huge mining tyres measuring over four metres.
