rubberized asphalt, as well as a pilot project involving pyrolysis (See Appendix E).

Due to the stringent emissions regulations any form of disposal involving the

combustion of tyre rubber cannot be implemented in Hong Kong.

Recycled Rubber Products

A company based in Hong Kong, Jets Technics, has developed particularly

innovative ways to recycle tyres to create useful products. During a tour of Jets

Technics, John So informed us that by using custom designed machinery protected by

intellectual property rights they can shred tyres economically and produce a variety of

shreds (See Appendix H). By combining these shreds with polymers and pressing or

heating them they can create products such as factory floor coatings, athletic surfaces,

rubber bricks, racing tracks for horses, and tiles for playgrounds (See Figure 8).

Figure 8 - Examples of Jets Technics products created from recycled tyres. A horse racing track can be seen in (a), a park path in (b), (c) is a playground, commonly seen in Hong Kong, and (d) is an example of an athletic surface. Photos courtesy of John So (Jets Technics).
