|Abstract: ||Rubbers do not decompose easily and therefore disposal of rubber waste is a serious environmental concern. Raw material costs, diminishing natural resources, and the growing awareness of environmental issues and sustainability have made rubber recycling a major area of concern. Reclaiming and recycling rubber waste is a major scientific and technological challenge facing rubber scientists today. This paper reviews a number of important areas related to the reclaiming, characterizing, testing and recycling of rubber waste. These include: chemical and microbial devulcanization with particular emphasis on main chain scission and kinetics of chemical devulcanization reactions; the cutting-edge techniques for reclaiming devulcanized rubber waste by the action of large shearing forces, heat and chemical agents: and analytical techniques and methods for characterizing composition and testing of devulcanized rubber waste, respectively. In addition, some aspects of the recycling of devulcanized ethylene-propylene-diene rubber (EPDM) waste will be reported. EPDM is used extensively in automotive components world-wide and recycling the rubber at the end of its useful service life is of major importance to manufacturers of automotive components.|
