Abstract [en]

As part of the Norwegian Roads Recycled Materials R&D Program (, a large light fill noise barrier has been constructed along highway E6. The structure utilized 25% of all tyres that were collected in Norway in 2002. Four monitoring stations are used to sample leachate from drainage that enter local recipient. The leaching of anti-oxidizing compounds from tyre shreds is of concern for Norwegian environmental authorities. In national pilot projects where tyre shreds are used as a light fill material special precaution is taken not to harm the surface water recipients. A five-year monitoring program will document relative effect from different sources and the risk of environmental harm will be evaluated. Ongoing pilot projects indicate that leaching of nonyl-, octyl- or bisphenol from tyre shreds induces no environmental risk if applied under given design conditions. The way of application of recycled material will have an impact on long-term risk and the possibility of reuse or recycling of tyre shreds.
