Colombian mining company Carbones del Cerrejon has inaugurated Latin America’s first large-tire recycling plant, which will export part of its production to other countries in the region and to Asia.

The plant in the northeastern province of La Guajira, has the annual capacity to recycle 2,360 tires from mining equipment used at Cerrejon’s massive open-pit coal mine.
