New Study Paves Way for Building Walls from End-of-Life Tires

A new study by The University of South Australia has tested and verified the structural integrity of building walls made from tires packed with other earth materials. The study says the results potentially provide new opportunities for the reuse of end-of-life tires in the construction industry.

According to this study, tire waste represents a major sustainability challenge globally, with Australia alone generating an average of 55 million (450,000 metric tons) end-of-life tires each year.
