The tyre metering plant with container loading system at GCA Marseille transports and shreds used car tyres and loads containers. The facility was successfully taken into operation by db technologies BV in autumn 2014.
The shredded used car tyres are not only used as fuel, but also as a resource for producing cement. By burning the high caloric tyres, heat is generated for the production of cement, whereas the remainder of the burnt tyres is a resource for cement.
