Saskatchewan Tire Processors
Saskatchewan's scrap tire processing industry uses a variety of methods to create many different types of products.
Assiniboia Rubber Recycling
The plant uses both a cryogenic and ambient processing system to produce various sizes of rubber crumb. Their crumb product is used in various applications, depending on its size, such as material for sports fields, playgrounds, rubberized asphalt, golf courses, and many others.
The plant was originally owned by Prairie Rubber Corp, and opened in Assiniboia in 2000. It has two tire processing systems that make different types of rubber crumb. The cryogenic system uses liquid nitrogen to freeze the shredded tires and to separate the rubber, metal and fibre. The ambient system breaks up the tires by mechanical means.
