The Economics of tire remanufacturing

Author: Ferrer, Geraldo INSEAD Area: Technology and Operations ManagementIn: Resources, Conservation and Recycling, vol. 19, no. 4, apr. 1997 Language: EnglishDescription: p. 221-225.Type of document: INSEAD ArticleNote: Please ask the Library for this articleAbstract: The world market for tires is described to identify the current material flow from raw materials to tires and the used tire disposal problem. Then, the author describes the value-adding operations in the tire production process and in the tire retreading process. Once retreading is identified as the only recovery alternative that maximizes tire utilization, it is explained why heat generation is the only recovery alternative, when retreading is not technically feasible. The economic values of heat generation in electric plants and in cement kilns are discussed. The paper culminates with the case of retreading, the tire remanufacturing process, and the recommandation of a simple decision rule for selecting the number of times a tire should be retreaded to maximize its utilization
