Columbus McKinnon (CM) Asia announced that it has recently completed the installation of a CM Dual Speed Tyre Shredder at Osung Resources Co.’s cement plant in Daugu, South Korea.

The stage one machine can accept tires from passenger cars, SUVs and trucks. The shredder is expected to process between 8-12tph of shredded tyres. The CM Dual Speed is configured to produce a two-inch tire chip that can be used as a tyre derived fuel (TDF) at Osung’s cement plant.

The cement company expects to process 20,000t of scrap tyres at the cement plant this year. SU-UI Lee, Osung’s president, also is president of Korea’s Waste Plastic Association.

In a CM release, Lee says that he is planning on acquiring another factory in a densely populated area of Korea that will allow the company to shred more tires.
