Conference agenda

Martin von Wolfersdorff will launch the two-day symposium on recovered carbon black, and Paul Ita of Notch Consulting Group will give a market overview after him.

Dr. Andreas Topp of Continental will update the audience on Conti's sustainability goals before going over Michelin and Bridgestone's suggestions for the rCB specification. These will outline the situation of recovered carbon black in the tire industry.

There will be the standard update from some of the top pyrolysis businesses, including Scandinavian Enviro Systems, Bolder Industries, Black Bear Carbon, and Circtec.

On Day One's morning, there will be discussions about regulatory compliance, as well as a study on the carbon footprint of tire pyrolysis.

Testing, characterization, standards, and the results of post-treatments of rCB in rubber reinforcement will be the main topics after lunch.

Day 2 begins with a focus on Tyre Pyrolysis Oil and a presentation by BASF, a significant client for TPO, providing information on its applications.

The discussion on technical innovations from specialists in the field and researchers will come next.

Naturally, the afternoon examines how to upscale and how cooperation might benefit the industry as it moves towards "at scale" production. Krzysztof Wróblewski from Contec S.A., Eliot Sorella from Ecolomondo, and Pascal Klein from Pyrum Innovations AG will all provide presentations in this area.
