We transform contaminated soot from the batch pyrolysis process into tailor-made recovered Carbon Black (CB), cleaning it to a stage where it can be used to replace traditional fossil fuel-based CB in tyre manufacturing and the rubber industry.
Only a small fraction of the 1.5 billion used tyres generated each year is re-treaded: most of them end their life generating electricity or producing heat in steelworks or cement kilns, thereby emitting high volumes of CO2. We aim to revolutionise an existing method by eliminating all its weak points and offering green pyrolysis operating in a truly continuous manner.
Unique selling points
Our product can fully replace virgin carbon black from fossil fuels thanks to similar levels of clean energy. We do this at a price level lower than the market price of CB produced from crude oil, making it an incentive for potential industrial buyers. No alternative product can match us.
Our technology can significantly mitigate the use of fossil fuels (today, CB is produced from crude oil or natural gas) and minimises C02 generation, thereby contributing to sustainable consumption and production patterns, climate action, and the promotion of inclusive and sustainable industrialisation through innovation.
Following successful prototype demonstrations in conditions similar to the operational environment, we aim to demonstrate our commercial readiness within 18-24 months.
