STRF aims to recycle the rubber and steel composing wasted tyres and to diminish the devastating consequences of the fumes emitted by their incineration. This is a monopolized profession with only one other workshop in Meit El Haroon, the only other place in Egypt and North Africa that works on separating all the constituent components of tyres using primitive tools in a manual process that requires nothing but physical strength. In their factory, through cooperating with The Meit El Haroon workshop, STRF were able to design and manufacture machines that will help in the process and increase the daily productivity of rubber ton and steel. This will help in increasing the productivity of the rubber and steel recycling factories that are operating on 40-60% of their productive capacity due to the shortage of supply.
Our real development plans involves further processing of our current product. We intend on getting new machinery that will convert our rubber blocks into rubber powder, and instead of selling our product to rubber recycling factories, we will be a rubber recycling factory on our own. We also intend on expanding the business, creating a widely spread profession from a monopolized one, creating hundreds of job opportunities and creating .a cleaner environment with a better economy
