It looks to me as if the "buffing" process removes the treaded (or bald!) part of the tire... down to the steel belting. I am wondering what happens to the rest of the tire. It would seem that we will have a LOT of reclaimable rubber left "on the hoof" so to speak. I am guessing that the sidewalls probably have almost the same amount of rubber in them as the treaded portion on a worn tire. Something that hasn't been addressed yet is what will be done with the "buffed" tires... Sounds like we will have to stockpile them until we can reclaim the rest of the rubber and steel. It has been stated that we will be into the fine powders by early next year... I HOPE that means that this part will come from the rest of the tire... and that we will have the equipment in place to do this by then. I'd like a simple answer as to how many buffing machines will we need to fulfill the present buffings contracts (or WHEN will we be able to fulfill them).... and I'd like the same info for the existing nugget contracts as well? Apparently we are going to sub out some of the nugget contract. Wondering what we'll be able to make on that transaction? What part of the tire do nuggets come from? Is it an either/or proposition for processing either buffings or nuggets from a tire? Or... is a nugget just a further processed buffing?
