BALTIMORE (Oct. 28)—Maryland Environmental Service, an Annapolis-based, non-profit utility with ties to the Maryland state government, is building a 100,000-sq.-ft. plant designed to process 1.5 million tires per year, to go on-stream by the beginning of 2003. The facility will produce three-eighths inch to one-half inch crumb for playground surfacing, as well as finer-mesh crumb for molded goods, according to Tait Saderholm, an MES marketing specialist who will handle sales and marketing for the new plant. "We´ve been responsible for taking care of scrap tires in Maryland for a number of years," Saderholm said. "We noticed there was a hole in the process, a shortfall in tire recycling."
