Swiss Tyre Recycling Solutions and Polish Contec share a common vision on circularity
Sharing the same vision of implementing circularity within the rubber and tire manufacturing industry, Tyre Recycling Solutions (TRS) announced a partnership with Contec, promoting their products and technologies as well as joint research and development activities.
Poland-based manufacturer Contec provides circular rubber and plastic solutions that deliver low-carbon-footprint products by recovering the Carbon Black, oil, and steel from waste tires. Contec enables partners to decarbonise their supply chains and contribute to a sustainable future, where rubber recycled waste can be used as a feedstock instead of fossil fuels.
Tyre Recycling Solutions builds global solutions for the collection, processing and recycling of end-of-life tires through the development and implementation of innovative technologies and business processes. TRS’s technology toolbox utilizes a unique water-jet milling process which can produce high-performance powder for use as raw materials in a variety of industrial rubber products and high value applications and compounds. TRS derives its revenues from equipment sales, licenses, sale of high-performance rubber powder under its globally trademarked brand name TyreXolTM as well as the sale of TPE-TyreXol compounds, made of (recycled) thermoplastic elastomers.
Contec – Poland-based manufacturer – has been fully involved in the pyrolysis technology development, from the R&D and engineering of the technology to the waste management and feedstock quality checks, and currently operates the pyrolysis installation of the protected technology. The company strives for the highest quality of low-carbon footprint products, always with factory safety and process efficiency in mind.
About Tyre Recycling Solutions SA
Tyre Recycling Solutions SA (TRS) was founded in 2013 in Switzerland with the aim of enabling sustainable recycling of the materials contained in scrap tyres. TRS has developed Swiss proprietary technologies to process scrap tyres and deliver output products with significant value-in-use.
Creator of a circular economy solution, TRS is a technology developer and integrator. TRS has developed a toolbox of technologies and know-how to implement the best available process. The cornerstones of TRS’ toolbox are rubber powder functionalization technologies, powder chemical coating treatment, a unique water milling technology and intelligent compounding. TRS implements technologies and processes into tyre recycler operations, enabling them to become a supplier of a unique specialty chemical – TyreXol™ rubber powders. TRS relies on in-house “Intelligent Compounding©” to commercialize TyreXol™ rubber powders in specific market applications. As the youngest addition, TyreXol™ rubber powders are compounded with recycled Thermoplastics to generate TyreXol™ TPE, with a recycling content of up to 98%. At the center of a transformation, we solve a hazardous waste issue, creating value for existing players of the recycling chain, providing cost-efficient new materials and unique compounding solutions.
