Tire/Rubber Recycling Glossary
The Tire Industry Association’s (TIA) Environmental Advisory Council (EAC) has introduced an easy-to-use glossary of key reference terms and definitions used in the tire and rubber recycling industry. The guide, which also contains terms and definitions covering other tire segments, was developed to improve knowledge and communication and serve as a valuable resource for anyone working in the tire recycling industry. The glossary contains specific “core” terms that represent the foundation for scrap tire and rubber recycling and is not meant to be inclusive. Additional terms may be added to future publications as the industry changes.
