Recycled Tires Help National Parks

Recycled Michelin Tires Helps Yellowstone National Park Go Green

Tourists visiting Yellowstone National Park’s famous geyser, “Old Faithful,” will even use tires once they get out of their cars for a closer look. Old Faithful, you see, now boasts a porous, clean, flexible walkway made almost entirely of recycled Michelin tires. The “paved” surface, known as Flexi-Pave and manufactured by the company K.B. Industries (KBI), is kinder to the environment than asphalt because the permeable composite material allows for better erosion control and preservation of the natural patterns of groundwater flow. In addition, the walkway surface is highly durable and tolerant of extreme hot or cold weather, and does not leach any oil into the surrounding environment.
“The material used to create KBI’s Flexi-Pave is completely benign and therefore can be used safely with the delicate aquifers here in Yellowstone,” said Kevin Bragnall, CEO and founder of KBI, in a statement. The Old Faithful Walkway Project covers 6,400 square feet and includes 900 Michelin tires. “The path allows 3,000 gallons of groundwater to pass per square foot. It also is designed to diffuse the water’s force, helping prevent erosion,” Bagnall noted.
“The Old Faithful Walkway Project is a great example of what a difference a company devoted to sustainability can make in the world’s first national park,” said Karen Bates Kress, president of the Yellowstone Park Foundation, in a statement. “We are fortunate to have a corporate partner as farsighted, public-spirited and generous as Michelin,” she added. Underscoring how important this project was to the 126-year-old tire company, Michelin flew in a team of employees from across the country to help complete the construction of the walkway. The 10 volunteers were winners of a company-wide contest to participate in the project.
Michelin is a major corporate sponsor of the Yellowstone Park Foundation, with a goal of helping the park curb operating expenses and reduce the consumption of raw materials. To ensure this, Michelin regularly donates and helps maintain thousands of tires for Yellowstone National Park’s more than 800 vehicles, including patrol cars, garbage trucks, snow plows and load-hauling tractor trailers. The tires feature the latest in green tire technology to help save fuel and reduce emissions.
“Helping build and provide material for this new pathway is very much in line with Michelin’s goal of working with the Yellowstone Park Foundation,” said Leesa Owens, director of community relations for Michelin, in a statement.

Getting your car inspected yearly might seem like a hassle or inconvenient but the program is designed to keep you and others around you safe. Most cars will start experiencing small problems. If ignored for too long, these problems can all of a sudden cause the car to fail in disastrous ways. By getting your car inspected yearly, you can prevent these problems and keep your car safe. Otherwise, what would start off as a minor problem, can become expensive and even dangerous. 

Another benefit to having your car inspected annually is that it helps the environment. In the state of Texas cars undergo an emissions test. This is designed to monitor the amount of pollution that gets released into the air from the exhaust. If it doesn’t pass this part of testing, you would have to figure out what the cause is and get it fixed. Let’s face it, we all like breathing clean air. Cutting down on pollution can also help prevent major health issues in the future. Cars release carbon monoxide into the air which can cause major respiratory issues such as asthma and other environmental issues as well. That’s why emissions testing is important to keep our world as clean as possible for the future.

MILEAGE INFORMATION

Write your post here.The pluses and minuses of adding mileage to your vehicle.
Employer Reimbursement for mileage
Current Mileage Rates according to the Internal Revenue Service:
Beginning on Jan. 1, 2014, the standard mileage rates for the use of a car (also vans, pickups or panel trucks) will be:
·        56 cents per mile for business miles driven
·        23.5 cents per mile driven for medical or moving purposes
·        14 cents per mile driven in service of charitable orginizations
 
Wear and tear on vehicle
Mileage decreases the value of a car. Even if the car is a newer year model the vehicle lessens quickly in value with high mileage.  (The higher the mileage the more wear on the parts.)
Sometimes it's less cost prohibitive in the long run to rent a vehicle for long road trips vs. using your own car to avoid adding higher mileage to your car, which decreases the total value.
Regardless of whether the miles you add are highway or city, it still adds up to motor and parts usage.

512-789-2177 AUSTIN JUNK CAR BUYERS IS A GREEN COMPANY DEDICATED TO RECYCLING VEHILCES.
Information from Wiki Vehicle Recycling.
Did you know that automobiles are the number one recyled product in the United States? Each year there are about 10 million vehicles are recycled. Each car weighs about 1.5 tons and for each ton recycled, we conserve 2500 pould of iron ore, 1400 pounds of coal and 120 pound of limestone. That adds up to a lot of resources saved for our great country.
Another part of recycling is the resue of spare parts. This saves the companies from having to manufacture the same parts over and over again and saves time and money and puts more money in your pocket when you buy from a junk yard. After the car is at no use and all the parts are taken off then the car goes to large scale crushing and taken to a steel mill to be refined and reused. 14 million tons of steel are provided to the steel industry each year by recycling cars, trucks, vans and suv's.
One part of recycling the vehicle is done by removing all the hazardous fluids and materials and disposing of them by state and federal guidelines and procedures. The batteris and sodium azade for the air bags and mercury are removed from the vehicle.
So, recycling save energy and natural resources for the United States. The steel industry alone saves enough energy to power 18 million households a year, each and every year. So when I turn on my lights at my house I am glad that Junk Car Buyer of Austin has provided the raw materials to keep my home lit as well as yours. Recycling keeps a lot of material out of the landfills too which is better for all of us and the enviorment. Speaking of the enivronment all the mercuy swiches from the cars have been removed from over 6000 recyclers and over 2100 pounds were collected in 2007 alone.
So yes, please recycle your car and we pay top dollar to you when you sell your auto to us and we are saving the enviorment one car at a time. Call for a free quote on your car at 512-789-2177
