Smithers Rapra has released a Recycling and Reuse of Waste Rubberbook.
Smithers said this comprehensive review, with extensive up-to-date referencing, covers all aspects of rubber recycling, from its world market to the many novel technologies and processes that have been developed to reuse the material to manufacture added-value products.
One feature of the publication is describing the techniques used to devulcanize waste rubber so it can be reprocessed into high specification products, Smithers said. Additionally, the production of rubber crumb from waste rubber products and its use to manufacture a wide range of products also are covered, along with testing methods and quality protocols essential to ensuring rubber recycling can take its place in today's quality conscious world. Using waste rubber to generate energy and manufacture new materials, such as fuel oils and recovered carbon black also is covered.
