Versalis, a chemical company owned by Eni, and one of the world’s leaders in the production and marketing of elastomers has signed an agreement with AGR, a company that owns technology for the devulcanization of post-consumer elastomers. Together, Versalis and AGR are going to develop technological innovations and new products and applications from recycled end-of-life tire rubber. Devulcanization is process of selectively breaking chemical bonds that transforms objects in solid rubber, usually granulated, into a workable and moldable form, ready to be reused in the production of new products, such as tires or gaskets.
KURZ Karkassenhandel GmbH – a tire recycling company from Germany – has been committed to environmentally friendly and responsible waste tire disposal for years. Till this November, the tire recycler had been accepting only large quantities of end-of-life tires. With its new online inquiry tool, one can now ask KURZ to pick up scrap tires at individual demand. The service not only allows emptying the garage space, but also implies environment-friendly and clean recycling of waste tires. Around 65 million end-of-life tires are generated in Germany every year. This can be imagined as an indeed huge pile, but the tires can be 100% recycled. End-of-life tires contain valuable raw materials such as rubber, steel and even synthetic textiles. A certified scrap tire disposal company like KURZ Karkassenhandel GmbH ensures that these raw materials remain in the loop and thus the environment protected.
Pyrowave, a pioneer in the electrification of chemical processes and plastics recycling, and Michelin – one of the leading tire manufacturers worldwide – agree to industrialize an innovative plastic waste recycling technology. • Michelin Group and the Canadian firm Pyrowave join forces to accelerate time-to-market for an innovative plastic waste recycling technology. • They agree to fast track the process industrialization. • The purpose of the technology is to increase the rate of sustainable materials not only in Michelin tires, but also in other industries.
