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.

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.

French cement manufacturers have been recycling end-of-life tyres in their kilns for 40 years, and now process almost a quarter of all the tyres collected in France. In the last 15 years, Aliapur has made a name for itself as the key player in the sector, providing discipline. The cement manufacturers, who are part of a circular economy mindset, use tyre shred for both material recycling and energy recovery at the same time, and count on their partner Aliapur to operate in a short-loop environment at the national level.

[The ATILH (French technical association for the hydraulic binder industry) is a professional organisation that developed out of the French cement industry. Its aim is to "carry out all the actions in which the member companies find a common interest in the technical field": research, development, environment, standardisation and quality, information and technico-economic intelligence]
