Naples, Florida - Using recycled rubber powders in manufacturing offers significant reductions in greenhouse gas emissions and energy use, according to a study performed by Malcolm Pirnie Inc. for recycled rubber powder maker Lehigh Technologies Inc.
For every 10 pounds (4.5kg) of recycled rubber polymers used in place of synthetic polymers, a manufacturing operations prevents the atmospheric release of 10 pounds of carbon dioxide and reduces primary energy consumption by the equivalent of a gallon of crude oil, the study said.
