Abstract

Every year in Italy about 430000 t of used tires (EoLT = End of Life Tyres) are dismissed (in Europe about 2.5 millions). Since July 2006 landfills do not accept anymore neither whole nor shredded used tyres, therefore it is necessary to identify some other disposal or material recovery strategies (valorization). This study focus on the Life Cycle Analysis of EoLT carried out using a detailed LCA software (Simapro6.0); in particular it focus on the comparison between two systems: a production of asphalt using recycling tyres (asphalt rubber) and a production of asphalt without rubber (asphalt normal). The environmental impacts are analyzed using 3 methods: Ecoindicator99, EDIP/UMIP96 and Cumulative Energy Demand. The results of the Life Cycle Assessment show that the first system (recycling tyres) has the less environmental impacts than the second.
