add to this thread with info of Innovative Company which is doing something useful
This company essentially takes the older rubber tyres, splits them into smaller chunks, cryogenically cools them and then mills them into fine rubber dust. This dust has multiple uses as shown in the article below from TR

This is great info..somehow I missed this thread for a long time.

But with all this development, I feel a little less sinful while driving....
Let's hope and watch
