Tire pyrolysis company from the Netherlands Black Bear Carbon has stated this month that it is ready to construct one more recovered carbon black plant at the Port of Rotterdam. However, Black Bear did not reveal the annual capacity of its anticipated facility.

To recover carbon black, end-of-life tires will undergo thermal treatment at the facility as granulate will be decomposed from the waste materials. They will be further applied in production of carbon black and pyrolysis oil.

In order to evaluate technical and financial side of the project, Black Bear is expected to work together with the Port of Rotterdam Authority. The cooperation is anticipated to be confirmed next month.

Black Bear is renowned for its technology that relies on an original carbonization method aimed at manufacturing recycled carbon black out of scrap tires.

The Dutch recycler’s announcement comes after its representatives revealed the company’s goals to make the patented technology more widespread by creating new tire recycling facilities in EU and the Middle East.
