TIREC – development of a technology for new polymeric compositions with recycled tires rubber and new products designing

The goal of the Project is the management of rubber waste from used car tyres in the form of a filler in polymer composites. The waste which has been ground into a rubber powder of an average grain size less than 0,5 mm is combined with thermoplastic by injection moulding and with the porous polyurethane by vacuum casting. The composition of a newly created material will undertake optimization from the point of view of its share in the composition, mechanical properties, contents and the migration of the polycyclic aromatic compounds (i.e. PAH – polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons). 

Duration of the Project: 1.05.2019 – 31.07.2021

Project budget: 1 049 750 PLN 

UE co-financing: 839 850 PLN

The Project is carried out as part of the EUREKA Initiative.
