metal wires are removed magnetically after shredding and separated into another pile.
Q: How could the government cover the start up costs for recycling techniques? A: Even if the government subsidizes companies it’s difficult because there is not enough waste tyres. The special conditions of Hong Kong must be taken into account. The production of tyres isn’t high and the Hong Kong government doesn’t like to apply too many regulations. The technology must be sustainable and commercially viable. Playground mats and simple uses of tyre rubber are viable but technologies such as pyrolysis take up too many resources. As such, small applications of tyre waste is the main plan of action for the PRS.
