RE: Rubber Waste

I have an client that does road construction and they use tire rubber scrap in their asphalt mix for certain applications.  This may be a source for the scrap rubber waste you are talking about.  When you have information on the rubber composition have them contact a local asphalt manufacturer or the state road department for names of companies that might use it in paving.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to deal with clean black rubber waste?  There is a small business with about 20,000 lbs of scrap cuttings on hand, and they want to do something better than simply landfill it.  I am still waiting on more information on exactly how this is generated and what it looks like in order to suggest a P2 solution.  So far the best use I can think of is boiler fuel for a pulp/paper facility!  Any suggestions?
