Kumtor Gold Company has always given the highest priority to environmental and sustainable development issues.
In this regard, on behalf of the country’s leadership, the company initiated a project to build a modern processing plant in the city of Tokmak (Chui region), aimed at processing and repairing obsolete truck tires, including tires for heavy vehicles with a load capacity of up to 180 tons, as well as aviation and other types truck tires.
The project is currently operating at the test mode stage. Upon completion of all testing processes and obtaining the necessary permits, it will be launched at full capacity. To implement this project, modern equipment from Germany and Russia will be used. The process of recycling old truck tires will include the separation of components – rubber, metal elements and textiles, which will be treated accordingly. The resulting materials will be reused in industrial processes to create new products.
The main goal of this project is to reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill and mitigate the negative impact on the environment. In addition, recycling of old truck tires will save the company’s resources by up to 30-40% when renewing tires.
The company noted: “We value nature and strive to preserve it for future generations. Recycling old truck tires is a very important step in this direction.”
The processing plant in Tokmok will not only provide new jobs, but will also become the foundation for the development of an environmentally responsible industry in the country. Kumtor Gold Company is committed to making this project a successful example of waste recycling and disposal in the mining industry, contributing to the conservation of our planet.
