Caption: Tyre-burning power station. Used tyres entering a prototype tyre-burning power station on a conveyor belt. The tires are used as fuel to run an electricity generator. It is estimated that one tire can serve the energy needs of the average northern California household for a day. A tyre mountain containing around 40 million tires can be seen in the background. Photographed in Westley, California, USA.
