B Green Innovations Inc.

B Green Innovations, Inc. ("B Green") has had a "Go Green" mission from its inception. Our goal is to create a "Green" company for the development of solutions to eliminate waste from the world's environment. B Green offers consumers a realistic and necessary solution to the problem of waste around the world. We believe that to truly have an impact on the planet, one must be committed to the environment and seek out environmentally-friendly products.

B Green Innovations, Inc. ("B Green") a Matawan, New Jersey-based corporation is dedicated to becoming a "green" technology company, focused on acquiring and identifying promising technologies that address environmental issues. The first technology will be used to create new products from recycled tire rubber. Recently, we announced that we had filed a new Patent Application for a process it described as "RecycledTire Pod with Appliance Recess Guide."

Introducing the EcoPod™ and VibeAway™, made from recycled tire rubber, address important environmental concerns and problems facing the planet today. EcoPod™ and VibeAway™ are 100% recycled rubber-based products that can be utilized as support pads under any units that vibrate and make noise, including washing machines, dryers, compressors, commercial condensers, and many other units that advantageously benefit from sound and vibration control.

How big a problem is worn out tires? In 2003, the Rubber Manufacturers Association estimated that there were 275 million tires in stockpiles across the United States, and that approximately 290 million scrap tires are added each year. The report noted that more than 90% of the illegal scrap tire accumulation and associated stockpiles are located in 11 states, making a targeted marketing program feasible. Many of the states did not have abatement programs or waste management programs in place at the time of that report.

In 2006 the EPA became involved, publishing a Guidebook called “Scrap Tire Cleanup” in which it noted that large scrap tire stockpiles present a risk to human health and the environment for several reasons. It noted that, “They provide an ideal breeding ground for mosquitoes, which carry and transmit life-threatening diseases such as encephalitis, West Nile and Eastern Equine virus, and dengue fever in some regions. Stockpiles can also catch on fire as a result of lightning strikes, equipment malfunctions or arson. The longer a stockpile continues unabated, the more likely it is to catch fire. Some experts no longer consider it a question of if a stockpile will catch fire, but when it will burn.”

According to the report, “State, federal and local agencies have spent tens of millions of dollars over the past several decades in responding to tire fires and as a general rule it is five to ten times more expensive to remediate a fire site than it is to remove the tires before they catch fire.”

EPA Scrap Tire Cleanup Guidebook
Minimize

According to the EPA’s Scrap Tire Cleanup Guidebook, released June 8, 2006, large scrap tire stockpiles present a risk to human health and the environment for several reasons. They provide an ideal breeding ground for disease-carrying mosquitoes and rodents. Stockpiles can also catch on fire as a result of lightning strikes, equipment malfunctions or arson. State, federal and local agencies have spent tens of millions of dollars over the past few decades responding to tire fires.

Approximately 290 million automobile and truck used tires are discarded by Americans every year.

Since 1989, when only 10 percent of scrap tires were recycled or reused, the United States significantly increased its tire reclamation efforts to slightly more than 80 percent. However, the 55 million tires (19 percent) not reclaimed are being thrown into landfills or, even worse, disposed of illegally on roadsides and properties around the country.

Perhaps you've driven by a tire graveyard, where hundreds or even thousands of tires create, not only an eyesore, but public health and safety hazards as well. Discarded tires are convenient breeding grounds for mosquitoes and rodents, which carry a host of diseases, including West Nile and Eastern Equine virus, encephalitis, dengue fever, and hanta virus. Tire piles attract children, who can injure themselves playing among them.

Scrap tires in landfills can also damage the landfill linings that have been installed to help keep surface and groundwater free from landfill contaminants.

Another problem with discarded used tires is the risk of fire: tire pile fires can smolder for weeks and months, releasing extremely toxic pollutants into the air, creating serious respiratory and other health problems for people in the vicinity and many miles away. Runoff water from such fires is also laden with toxins, which can contaminate water supplies. In 1999, a tire fire in Westley, California, ignited by lightning, burned for 30 days. The fire produced large amounts of pyrolitic oil that not only contaminated a nearby stream but also ignited and caused additional pollution problems. In 1983, a seven million-tire fire in Rhinehart, Virginia, burned for nine months and polluted water supplies with arsenic and lead.

The good news is that 80.4 percent of scrap tires in the United States are being reclaimed in various ways.
