About KSA
For the last 20+ years K.I. Saab & Associates (KSA) and it’s team of associates has been involved in the research of many tire recycling technologies, systems and product manufacturing solutions. A full scope of work can be demonstrated, including many successful tire recycling projects built in various world markets including; US, Canada, Mexico, China, Europe and Saudi Arabia. The main KSA activities now focus on projects located in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) region www.gcc-sg.org/eng/ with emphasis in Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, and Qatar.

The scope of these projects included the design, procurement, installation and operations for a fully fledged integrated tire recycling plant incorporating shredding, granulating and crumb rubber manufacture with integrated after market product manufacture as described above.

Further, various research projects have been originated and managed in both Europe and the US covering early work on a mechnical devulcanization processes  and most recently a patent pending super critical fluid (SCF)

devulcanization technology. Also, significant work has been undertaken developing various press equipment for flat compression pressed flooring products, as well as continuous roll sheeting products (for sound reduction) and sports surfacing flooring for fitness and gym facilities, which are envisaged as the first product of choice suitable for the local high rise Saudi & Gulf construction and leisure  market sectors.

There is a growing local interest and hence demand for asphalt rubber as a high performance, cost effective road surface membrance providing low noise, safety and longevity properties – based on more than 25-years of development work in the United States (worth many millions of dollars) which can now be capitalized upon.

As well as design and engineering services this will include bringing to the Kingdom special proprietary asphalt rubber blending equipment needed to successfully manufacture asphalt rubber binders for use in road construction - now being introduced in the Kingdom after many years of market development work. To support this growing demand we can provide all the expertise to design and build a state-of-the-art tire recycling and crumbing plant to process in-Kingdom scrap tires to manufacture the required crumb rubber granulate used in the production of the asphalt rubber.

A number of feasibility studies have been completed for vertically integrated tire recycling plants as well as a variety of downstream value added technologies which can upcycle recycled tire rubber into valuable end products.
