Most people do not realize that old tires are a health, safety and environmental hazard. Disease-carrying mosquitoes nest in them, and if they catch fire, they can burn for weeks, releasing toxic fumes into the air, and chemicals into our groundwater.

An Israeli company based in the Ukraine, has found a safe and environmentally friendly way to dispose of old tires: the pollution-free process consumes no energy and produces attractive byproducts, such as gas for your car.
The only question I would have is if the fuel produced by this process is polluting or not. It's certainly preferable to system currently in place, but bio-fuels would be better.

On the other hand, since we still run on hybrid cars, this could replace gasoline produced from imported crude.
