ZWEIBRUCKEN, Germany (Nov. 21, 2011)—The German Pallmann Group has formed a partnership with Spanish tire recycler GMN to develop, construct and sell complete plants for shredding and reprocessing vehicle tires.
Pallmann Group has been supplying GMN with tire shredding plants since 2004. The two companies have been working together to optimize costs per ton, final product quality, and output rates. Rubber, steel and textile fractions are extracted and sorted from used car and truck tires, the separated materials are then marketed for reprocessing into various applications, Pallmann said.
GMN and Pallmann are now cooperating to come to the market under the Ecotrec banner. Ecotrec is a global provider of complete systems that encompass all modules necessary for recycling car and truck tires.
