One of the biggest problems facing humanity in recent years is the environmental pollution from industrial and municipal waste. Global efforts are being made to address these problems on a community-wide basis. Tyres are a major problem as the amount of waste increases in proportion to the demand for new cars.

The geopolymer Baucis L 160 (cement and activator) and fabrics with a purity of 52% were used for the manufacturing. The advantage of this material is its customized environmental, economic and social benefit for various areas of industries.
