The master collector for business and pleasure

In 2016, Ragn-Sells collected 87,000 tons of tyres in Sweden on behalf of SDAB. Over 6,000 tyre workshops and recycling plants contributed with tyres from their businesses. The total collected yet again over 100% of tyres sold, which is a record in returns collections.

A large part of the tyres, in fact, 26,774 tons (32%), have gone for production of granulate used for such purposes as filling in all-weather pitches with artificial grass. 1,568 tons (2%) of steel and textile have been extracted from tyres and returned to their respective cycles. The cement industry has used 24,968 tons (30%) as an energy source for its production.
