Mission And Vision
Of the 1.5 billion+ waste tyres that are generated every year worldwide, 6% are in India. In addition, India also imports around three lakh tonnes of tyres to recycle every year.
Every year over 1.6 billion new tires are generated and around 1 billion of waste tires are generated. However, the recycling industry processed only 100 million tires every year.
While India generates about 1.5 million tons of ELT per annum. Only 450,000 tons is recycled by the formal sector.
NGT data shows that India discards around 275,000 tyres each year, but there does not exist any comprehensive plan for them
