Aliapur presents: the second life of tyres

In 2 minutes, here is the recycling of your tyres in the Aliapur sector. You don’t imagine what they can become!

The conditions of a free collection

Automobile professionals: here are the essential rules to follow so that tire collection remains free (French only).

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!

Practical Guide

Testimonials

The Volkswagen group imported its acute environmental conscience from Germany in the 1990s. This state of mind was very avant garde back then. At the time, in France, the green economy we know so well today was still a long way off. We have developed a unique organisation for collecting and processing waste from our showrooms, including end-of-life tyres, which are mainly sent to cement works.
As a result, the practical implementation of Aliapur did not fill a gap, but rather presented itself as an opportunity that was not to be missed: it is always much better to leave it to specialists to provide relevant solutions. Since 2003, we have thus chosen to work together. For tyres, this decision has made our lives much easier, and this is still just as true today.

The Union of Tyre Professionals (Syndicat des Professionnels du Pneumatique) came into being in 1929 and groups together the different key players in the sector in France, including 200 specialist points of sale. Among our members, we also have the main tyre manufacturers, particularly Aliapur’s shareholders: this is thus a strong partnership that has been put together in a logical manner between our two organisations.
We need to remind users that tyres are highly technological products that deserve the very greatest respect. And in a context of heightened sensitivity to ecological and environmental matters, we should also remember that the sector has been organised in such a way as to make the life cycle of a tyre as virtuous as possible. We are thus in perfect harmony with the recycling sector which respects its obligations in an exemplary manner every year.
