Since 2004, we have optimised, secured and tracked all the procedures that allow us to take responsibility for and process 47 million end-of-life tyres every year. As soon as a tyre enters the Aliapur network, it is destined for a second life.
To ensure this, we have developed recycling methods that respect the environment, are technically reliable and economically viable. Thus, we allow tyres to replace raw materials – which can be fossil or manufactured, but are always costly, including in terms of transport.
Discover here which material can be replaced advantageously by end-of-life tyres, in which form, and in which sector of activity.
From coal to cork, via plastics, with technical performances that are identical or better.
From public works to leisure activities, via industry and energy, solutions that are cheaper and more respectful of the environment.

The first Openwaste hackathon* devoted to waste took place in November 2017 at the LeroyMerlin TechShop in Ivry-Paris. The event brought together 37 participants – makers, designers, engineers, creative people and fans – all with the same ambition to “hack waste” during the 3-day creative marathon.
The hackathon was organised on the initiative of Aliapur. It allowed multi-disciplinary teams to imagine and create prototypes of products made from recycled waste in general, and end-of-life tyres in particular, making sure to use a significant quantity of materials without generating any additional impact on the environment. Openwaste 1 was won by the “Black Pillow”, a surprising type of protection for urban furniture.

In 2013, when we imagined a “filtration barrier to combat the proliferation of mosquitoes” manufactured from recycled rubber, seeking out the expertise of Aliapur was the obvious move. Sharing this project with Aliapur made it possible to identify the resources and means needed to implement it in the hydromechanical, environmental soundness, industrial feasibility and market analysis phases. Together, we have built a strong working relationship that has transformed into a relationship based on trust, despite our rather particular geographical set-up: Aliapur in Lyon and Aedes-system in New Caledonia. Within this adventure, we particularly appreciated the human qualities of our relationship with our “Aliapur” contacts: their availability, of course, but also and above all their ability to adapt to this new recovery method for End-of-Life Tyres, complete with its strong public health and social image.
We met Aliapur in 2016. Aliapur was looking for new recovery methods for Technigom. As a company that develops new composite materials that are more respectful of the environment, we suggested integrating Technigom into our composites. A project was thus born: 4 composite panels were manufactured at the prototype level for applications ranging from aeronautics to sailing, via design. The performances of certain panels exceed those of their rival products.
The collaboration between our two companies made it possible to exhibit these panels at the JEC WORLD 2018 in Paris, the world’s largest trade fair for composites! We would like to thank Aliapur for having put their trust in us, giving us the freedom to innovate, and accompanying us in the promotion of these new products. Watch this space!
