In addition to previously reported positive tests by tyre manufacturers, another international tyre manufacturer has now confirmed their positive test results of recovered carbon black, EnviroCB, from Scandinavian Enviro Systems AB.
“The international tyre manufacturer, with production in Europe, confirms the positive test results and will now conduct production tests with a larger volume of recovered carbon black from Enviro“, says Thomas Sörensson, Managing Director Enviro.
Last year, Enviro reported that several international tyre manufacturers confirmed very positive test results and also approved the recovered carbon black for use in new tyres. After that, the demand for testing EnviroCB has increased, a smaller order has also been delivered to Sri Lanka for the production of industrial tyres.
“So far, Chinese Vanlead is the only tyre manufacturer that has approved our material that we are able to present by name. Our hope is that more companies will follow and present their successes in the development of a circular economy for tyre production. Most major players in the industry have clear goals to increase the share of recycled materials”, says Thomas Sörensson.
