Effective pilot plant for rubber recycling
Effective pilot plant for rubber recycling successfully completed. With a processing capacity of more than 6000 tons of rubber waste on an annual basis, the demo plant should be operational by mid-2022.
Frequently asked questions
Is your rubber vulcanized or devulcanized?
Our rubber powder is still vulcanized, but it is so fine that it can be added to virgin rubber in very large amounts.
What do I have to pay if I turn in EOL rubber products such as tracks?
The prices per ton are market prices and they can vary. Currently (2021) between €140 and €180 per ton plus transport costs.
Why do you choose mechanical recycling and not chemical recycling?
Chemical recycling, including pyrolysis, requires more energy. Mechanical recycling is less energy intensive and the recycled powder can be added to virgin rubber while maintaining quality. As a result, the carbon footprint is much smaller.
When water jetting, isn't there a lot of use of water, and isn't that polluting?
What chemicals do you use for the process?
Only water is used in the overall process, no chemicals. The water is recycled as much as possible.
