Pyrolyx technology has created the world’s first market-ready process to deliver a closed recycling loop for converting end-of-life tires (ELTs) into recovered Carbon Black (rCB) on a commercial scale. Every tonne of rCB saves 2.5 tonnes of CO2 compared to traditional Carbon Black production.
The result of our process is a mutually beneficial conversation between two challenges. On the one hand, our solution for ELTs addresses the question of the disposal of ELTs in an environmentally responsible manner. The use of rCB in tires allows the tire industry to “close the loop” on ELTs, something that has never before been possible and will yield invaluable possibilities for new generations of green tires. Second, the substitution of rCB results in a decreased environmental footprint for Carbon Black production.
The Pyrolyx process is an example of the circular economy at work, taking one key input (ELTs) and producing four commercial outputs:
