As part of our pyrolysis process one of the by-products of that process is carbon char, which is subsequently refined into Recovered Carbon Black (rCB). It’s a valuable commodity that is playing a huge part in circular economy policies, so much so, that an entire two-day conference was dedicated to it in Berlin last month.

Carlton Forest Renewables visited alongside some of the major players in the sector including tyre manufacturers Bridgestone and Michelin, who gave enlightening presentations regarding tyres and the part they play in the creation of rCB.

Warren Steele, Business Development Director, Carlton Forest Renewables commented; “This is a very exciting time for our industry, and it is so pleasing to see everyone all working together and pulling in the same direction to make a real difference as to how end-of-life tyres are recovered and processed.

“As owners and operators of the UKs first continuous pyrolysis plant for end-of-life tyres and, as a business that has already shown its entrepreneurial spirit and determination, we play a significant part in the driving forward of this valuable commodity.”

There is no doubt that the Recovered Carbon Black market will continue to grow and prosper due to its sustainable appeal when compared with Virgin Carbon Black.

With specialised businesses now processing carbon char from pyrolysis plants, the market will continue to grow and become a valuable asset in establishing a truly circular process for end-of-life tyre recovery.

Thanks to headline sponsors Smithers and to Martin Von Wolfersdorff, event organiser.

We are already looking forward to attending next year’s event!
