AIKEN, S.C. (June 27)—Westinghouse Savannah River Co. has developed a process to recycle scrap tires while maintaining mechanical and physical properties inherent in the tire rubber. The BioWave process uses a two-stage treatment method to yield a crumb rubber that can be mixed with new tire rubber to create tires, and with virgin rubber to create other rubber products, containing 20 percent or more recycled rubber, the company said.
