A new way to recycle tires? A company is grinding them to fine powder thus opening up additional ways to use the rubber material from the old tires.

thats a great idea.

I've been on motorcycle Race tracks quite a bit and the faster guys will go thru a set of tires each day and sometimes each race. Lots of tires get tossed at the local gas station. hundreds.

Liquid Nitrogen is an expensive part of the process tho.
