Recovered carbon black manufacturer Pyrolyx has signed a joint-development agreement with an international tire manufacturer – one of the top five in the global tire industry.
Under the agreement, new grades of recovered carbon black (RCB) will be developed to enable broader use of the material in various tire applications. As part of the partnership, the two companies will also explore further application options for pyrolysis oil in order to improve the environmental footprint of the technology.
Both partners believe that the pyrolysis technology offers high levels of potential in converting end-of-life tires and rubber waste into valuable material for new tire production.
Through the agreement, the two companies affirm their research commitment to a closed recycling loop – from scrap tires to new tires – as their sustainable contribution to reducing CO₂ emissions and conserving fossil fuel resources.
