Kuwait Tires historic situation:
An average car tyre will travel around 30.000 KM over its lifetime and when they have
reached the end of their life in Kuwait… they are destined for the tire graveyard.In Ku-
wait City’s Erhia area every year gigantic holes are dug out in the sandy earth and filled
with old tires. There are now over 20 million tires in the ground. The piles of rubber
are so vast that they are visible from space.
Over 1.2 million tires per year are consumed in Kuwait.
Recycling activities are started and KRC is proud to be involved in this process,
Kuwait Tires actual and future situation:
As part of an integrated solid waste management system in Kuwait, the existing tire
graveyard will be cleaned and future end of life tires (ELT ́s) will be recycled.

lic Authority of Industry, for this operation.
In this approach KRC will have exclusivity and unlimited access to the main tires
