Tyres as limitless resources

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.

By material replacement

From coal to cork, via plastics, with technical performances that are identical or better.

By sector of activity

From public works to leisure activities, via industry and energy, solutions that are cheaper and more respectful of the environment.

By brand

Designed as labels and developed as brands, presenting Technigom, Powergom and Géogom - by Aliapur!

Innovation: Openwaste, a creative marathon

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.

Testimonials

Using substitute fuels such as end-of-life tyres allows our cement works to reduce their consumption of fossil fuels, imported from often far-flung countries, thus playing a part in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and developing energy transition throughout the country. We know we can count on the reactivity and reliability of Aliapur to deliver shredded or whole tyres year round, satisfying the specifications of the factories.

[Vicat is an international cement manufacturer that was founded in the Isère département. The company has 160 years of experience, and has almost 8,000 employees in 11 countries. In 2018, Vicat Circulère was created: by transforming waste from building sites and reintegrating it into innovative, responsible products, it is now a question of participating in a new, sustainable development of spaces]

Quality, durability, homogeneity of the materials… AFNOR and Aliapur have been working together for more than ten years to encourage the actors in the field of end-of-life tyres to jointly write the voluntary standards defining good practices for collections and recycling. Fruitful exchanges have been federated at the national level, giving rise to European specifications favourable for the development of both the entire sector and new markets.

[AFNOR Normalisation informs and guides all those who, through their involvement in the writing of voluntary standards, want to allow a project, an activity, or a sector to develop in the very best conditions possible and thus play a part in the development of the economy and society of the future. It provides support that is indispensable for encouraging progress and innovation, as well as for helping France shine at the international level]
