A better environment

Looking at the future is extremely important to maintain a liveable environment by using our existing resources responsible and wisely today. Rubber Recycling Overpelt (RRO) exists since 1999 and is a reliable partner for the effective protection of the environment by reducing the waste of used tires. There are approximately 5.5 million tires sold each year in Belgium in the processing industry and approximately 7.5 million tires in the Netherlands. RRO annually processes approximately 7.200 tons of tires which equates to nearly 1 million units. RRO was founded in 1999 and has since an endured a tremendous growth. The company was founded by the Kuppens family. The main purpose was to combat the illegal dumping and find a way to process scrap tires in an environmentally friendly way. In the years that followed, there is a large knowledge gained for the collection and recycling of tires as well as developing the necessary equipment that is needed for shredding tires and for the production of the rubber granules. Rubber Recycling Overpelt is the only company in Belgium which manages the overall concept. RRO works everyday with 40 staff who ensure for the entire process of collecting, sorting / inspection and production of the rubber granules. In a highly sensitive area, such as the protection of the environment, strict observance of the rules is required. For us this means that we are also certified collector and processor in addition to the ISO 9001 certification by the Recytyre (Belgium) and RecyBEM (the Netherlands) conditions applicable. Being environmental friendly = 100% recyclable
