We are back with another installment discussing the recycling solution for using shredded car tires for construction projects, which is based on a Calrecycle 2016 TDA report: “All contractors and subcontractors should understand the basics of working with TDA prior to beginning. Information on prior completed projects and how TDA was used can help the management staff plan and complete the install without complications or delays. Based on management’s experience, once they’ve worked with TDA, they are typically comfortable doing so. The advantages of it include the following: The materials can be moved with conventional construction equipment.  It’s produced from waste tires and (supposedly) cleaned with fewer fines than rock or gravel.  The quality of the production is monitored, and no density test is needed to validate. It is lighter-weight and free-draining, and it has non-degrading type characteristics. Since TDA is derived from waste tires, it can rouse public attention sometimes, thus an on-site representative should be designated to act as the project public relations (PR) person if needed. This person should be appropriately selected so that media interruptions do not slow the progress of the job.

TDA is considerably lighter than conventional fill material. The limiting factor for moving TDA is not its weight but its volume. To provide the most low-cost method of trucking, trailers need to be big enough so the weight of the TDA being moved reaches the legal highway limit (80,000 lbs gross). The ability to hold and stockpile quantities of TDA on-site before use will allow for the best time and materials management. When considering a TDA stockpile site, the local fire department’s approval should be sought. It is recommended that only vehicles with tires filled with self-sealing gels be used in working with TDA, since it may contain metal shredding.” The full article is available here.

On July 5, 2016 an article titled ‘US Auto Fuel Economy Rating Slips in June’ composed by Paul Ausick explained the following: “The average fuel-economy rating for newer cars sold in the US for June 2016 was 25.3 MPG, down 0.1 mpg compared with the month of May . For all  2015, the overall average fuel-economy rating for new vehicles sold was 25.3 mpg.

While the window paper average is 5.2 mpg higher than when the information were first gathered, the average is still 0.5 mpg below its all-time high of 25.8 mpg set in August 2014. When gas prices started falling in the US, consumers purchased more light trucks, SUVs and crossovers, which get lower mpg ratings and contribute to the low average. The information are based on the average sales-weighted fuel-efficiency rating printed on a newer car’s window sticker and is compiled by Michael Sivak & Brandon Schoettle of the University of Michigan’s Transportation  Institute.

The sales-weighted unadjusted Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) efficiency rating averaged 31.7 MPG in May, up 0.4 mpg month over month and an improvement of 7.0 mpg since October 2007. These numeric values aren’t clearly comparable to the  ratings because these are adjusted by the EPA & used to gauge the window-sticker ratings. Overall vehicle sales in the month of June rose 2.5% 1.51M units. For the year to date, sales are up 1.5% versus  2015. On a seasonally adjusted annual rate (SAAR) scale, the sum fell from 17.46M units in May to 16.68M units in June. In June 2015 the SAAR came in at 17.01 million units.” The full article is available at this link:  http://247wallst.com/autos/2016/07/05/us-auto-fuel-economy-rating-slips-in-june/
