Understanding Tire Derived Aggregate

The CA Department of Resources Recycling & Recovery report on TDA informaed us of the following: “Tire-derived aggregate, or TDA, is a recyclable material derived from scrap auto tires. TDA was originally called shreds but with the advancement of standards and specifications that distinguished it from waste tires and other such derivatives, the name TDA was adopted to classify it as a standardized material. TDA has inherently good properties as a business material replacement for traditional aggregates like gravel and pumice-style rock, due to having less weight, high permeability, and a less costly material.

The Society for Testing & Materials (ASTM) has outlined the practices for usage of scrap auto tires in civil engineering applications and describes the material as pieces of scrap tires that have a simple geometrical shape and are usually between 3-12” in size. TDA is made by treating tires with a shredder machine that uses rotating cutting shears and a conveyor and screening system. Shears (which have been sharpened) are needed to produce clean cuts without residual amounts of exposed wire. The 1st pass through the machine produces rougher shreds. Additional passes through the shredder and a screen system break the material down to smaller pieces. The overall principle holds that the smaller the material to be produced, then the more shredding is necessary. While there are many TDA vendors and many various process configurations, it is the responsibility of the user to ensure that the TDA material delivered meets the desired specs.

Coordinating with vendors to have steady supplies and compliance with the specs is a critical part of the project development process. Vendors usually produce a variety of shredded tire products to match demand and don’t typically maintain back-stock of material. Scrap tires are also processed into tire-derived fuel (TDF) and crumb rubber, two other varieties of processing is executed for these applications.” The full study is available here: http://www.calrecycle.ca.gov/Publications/Documents/1545/201601545.pdf

In a July 8, 2016 article by Mónica Ortiz Uribe on Fronteras titled ‘America’s Auto Rejects Are Revived And Resold In Mexico’ we learned the following: “Mexico is making it harder to import old cars from the U.S., angering many that handle imports at the border who specialize in the refurbishing and resale of America’s 4-wheeled rejects. Recently, a sorry parade of damaged up cars sat bumper to bumper near a remote border crossing outside El Paso, TX. Many of them were lined up farther than the eye could see. Some had broken windshields and headlights, while others had dents on the hoods held shut by bungie cords. All were waiting near the border to cross into Mexico. He and other importers said Mexican customs agents abruptly reduced their hours and the number of cars they let through beginning in mid-June. This move has slowed an entire economic sector that’s long thrived. In the last 10 years Mexico received more than 7M used cars from the U.S.

The line of these clunkers at ports of entry in CA and TX has sparked chaos. Last month in Ciudad Juárez an angry group of importers blocked some commercial traffic coming into Mexico for a few hours. At a border crossing south of San Diego, the Tijuana Chamber counted as many as 4,000K waiting to enter. Eloisa Talavera, a Congresswoman the Mexican customs agency says the agency was tracking down on illegal imports— cars with values that are intentionally underestimated to avoid taxes or cars with fake emissions reports.

The Fronteras Desk contacted Mexican customs several times but didn’t get a response regarding why the agency had limited its hours and number of imports at the border, a move that’s negatively affected those who do business legally. Importers think customs is caving into pressure from the Mexican domestic auto manufacturing industry. In Mexico, new car sales are falling behind used car sales. While new car sales volume has remained relatively slow in Mexico over the last decade, auto manufacturing production has heightened in recent years. Today, Mexico is the area’s top auto exporter. Almost every significant brand has a factory there, such as Ford, Nissan and BMW. In the last (5) years Mexico exported 14M cars, mostly to the U.S. Eduardo Solis, president of Mexico’s Auto Manufacturer’s Association, says they are pressuring Mexican authorities to go after illegal car imports.

Solis says that too much trash from the U.S. ends up on our streets; if a car isn’t fit to be driven in the U.S., it shouldn’t be allowed on Mexico’s either. At a neighborhood body shop in Juárez, a worker repainted an imported Chevy Silverado. Other cars in the shop still had US registration stickers. Juan Flores, 2nd generation salesman, has been selling U.S. imports for many years. He says they make car ownership a reality for lower-wage Mexicans who don’t have access to lenders. Like other import salesman, Flores is paid for these cars in U.S. dollars, and right now the Mexican peso is weak.” The full article is here: http://www.fronterasdesk.org/content/10360/americas-auto-rejects-are-revived-and-resold-mexico

An article in the March 9, 2016 edition of Recycling Today titled ‘US aluminum producers ask for action on China’ told us the following: “A trade union and a US-based aluminum producer are asking the government to investigate the level of government subsidization of in Chinese aluminum production. The group making the request says China’s aluminum has been pouring into the U.S. for over a year. A March 9 article in the Wall Street Journal says the United Steelworkers union (USW) and IL-based Century Aluminum Company also sent researchers to China last year to investigate evidence of government subsidies for aluminum makers there. The USW & Century Aluminum say they expect that evidence showing the Chinese government has been providing billions in subsidies to aluminum companies, including low-interest loans.

The Arlington, VA-based Aluminum Association has been issuing releases and comments making similar allegations. As the economy of China has begun to slow, and less of its metal is being used domestically, there is a severe oversupply of China-produced metal. This is driving an increase of imported their aluminum into the US. According to the Aluminum Association’s data, U.S. imports of aluminum products from China grew 181% between 2012 and 2015. The Journal article states the value of total aluminum exports from China as having risen from $6.2B in 2006 to $23.8B in 2015. Any findings confirmed by the U.S. government would likely be forwarded to the World Trade Organization (WTO) to seek remedies. A Chinese embassy spokesperson said that WTO member nations, including China, should strictly abide by the rules, and use trade remedy measures in a prudent, restrained compliant way.

Despite a booming US auto industry & the stable construction sector, primary US aluminum production declined 7.2% in 2015 compared to the year before. The Wall Street Journal says aluminum production in China has gained 31% in 2015. However, North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) partner Canada was a larger factor in U.S. aluminum import markets in 2015. With the weak Canadian dollar, operators of smelters in Canada sent more than 2.8M tons of aluminum into the U.S. in 2015—over seven times the volume from China.” The full story is available here.
