A city on Texas will be turning old tires into biodiesel. KGBT-TV reports that the City of Harlingen will send the old tires to The Tire Recycling and Processing LLC facility where they’ll be turned into the green fuel:
“This effort will result in fewer tires being disposed of in landfills effectively decreasing the volume of debris in our landfills,” the city said in a statement.
The Tire Recycling and Processing LLC facility will use a pyrolysis process to convert the recycled tires into biodiesel.
They believe the company is the only one in the nation using the process to create biodiesel.
The program will run through the end of April next year.
