Our speaker will be, Max Lam who will talk about Autocycle International, his new tyre recycling business

On 1 December 2021, an export ban on whole and baled waste tyres came into effect in Australia, following glass and plastics export bans commencing in July. The bans come under the larger circular economy scheme developed by the Council of Australian Governments (COAG), after consultation with industry and other key stakeholders. The waste response plan under the Recycling and Waste Reduction Act 2020 was well received, however it posed challenges for local businesses and communities.

The Autocycle team had a vision of creating a safe and sustainable future for tyre recycling in Australia.
Lam said: “We wanted to ensure we are a people-first business, from the welfare of our employees to the safety of truck drivers. And we are not afraid of showing people our process and making it 100 per cent transparent and compliant.”

At the soft launch of Autocycle International, Lam said the company’s initial $7 million investment has resulted in three weather-protected bays for storage of waste tyres and a 9-metre high rack for storage of rubber products, both with fire suppression systems.
In addition, the facility contains a production line with European-imported machinery designed to effectively recycle passenger and truck tyres into a range of rubber products suitable for both Australian and international markets.
