Tyres as limitless resources

Since 2004, we have optimised, secured and tracked all the procedures that allow us to take responsibility for and process 47 million end-of-life tyres every year. As soon as a tyre enters the Aliapur network, it is destined for a second life.

To ensure this, we have developed recycling methods that respect the environment, are technically reliable and economically viable. Thus, we allow tyres to replace raw materials – which can be fossil or manufactured, but are always costly, including in terms of transport.

Discover here which material can be replaced advantageously by end-of-life tyres, in which form, and in which sector of activity.

By material replacement

From coal to cork, via plastics, with technical performances that are identical or better.

By sector of activity

From public works to leisure activities, via industry and energy, solutions that are cheaper and more respectful of the environment.

By brand

Designed as labels and developed as brands, presenting Technigom, Powergom and Géogom - by Aliapur!

Using substitute fuels such as end-of-life tyres allows our cement works to reduce their consumption of fossil fuels, imported from often far-flung countries, thus playing a part in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and developing energy transition throughout the country. We know we can count on the reactivity and reliability of Aliapur to deliver shredded or whole tyres year round, satisfying the specifications of the factories.

French cement manufacturers have been recycling end-of-life tyres in their kilns for 40 years, and now process almost a quarter of all the tyres collected in France. In the last 15 years, Aliapur has made a name for itself as the key player in the sector, providing discipline. The cement manufacturers, who are part of a circular economy mindset, use tyre shred for both material recycling and energy recovery at the same time, and count on their partner Aliapur to operate in a short-loop environment at the national level.

[The ATILH (French technical association for the hydraulic binder industry) is a professional organisation that developed out of the French cement industry. Its aim is to "carry out all the actions in which the member companies find a common interest in the technical field": research, development, environment, standardisation and quality, information and technico-economic intelligence]
