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?
