Concept & Objectives

The new model Developed by RECTYRE will enable the reduction of the environmental problem of used tyres due to the replication potential in all the Members of the EU and also in the future Members.

ACCIONA has developed a new design model in which natural soil has been substituted by shred tyres (20 to 30 cm) to fill embankments for road and railway construction. With this substitution, all the design parameters change, so there has been a deep research on the new values of the parameters and the identification on new ones. The initial model developed by ACCIONA has been improved during the RECTYRE project and with the results of this research the calculation and design model has been optimised. Laboratory test, pilot test and real scale cases have been executed to readapt it and finally to validate it. Once the new design model has been proved, a set of procedures have been developed in order to reduce time, costs and machinery and staff needs during the execution in worksites.

The addressing of this project at European level is essential and necessary, because the policies concerning Used Tyres management are defined at a EU level.

The reproducibility potential of the project is so high that it is necessary to extend the study to the whole EU territory, with special attention to the differences of each region and how they affect the model RECTYRE.

Once the project has achieved stable networks there is a potential extension of the project with the creation of transboundary networks, allowing the real distribution of used tyres as a function of the needs and demand, but contributing to the solution of the problem of stocks.
