New recycling unit for tyre giant Continental

Germany – Major tyre manufacturer Continental has inaugurated a new recycling and retreading facility in Hannover, Germany.

The ContiLifeCycle plant is a combined facility for hot and cold retreading of truck tyres and for the recycling of rubber from used tyres. The retreading factory has an annual capacity of 180 000 tyres, of which 150 000 are hot retreads.

The recycling unit has a capacity of 4000 tonnes and directly sources a proportion of its material supply from retreading factory left-overs.

Continental has invested more than Euro 10 million in the ContiLifeCycle plant; the project has also received financial support from the German government.

In its December issue, Recycling International will run a more detailed feature on Continental’s new facility.
