TECER tyre recycling (based in Santiago, Chile) has signed an MoU (Memorandum of Understanding) with CEYES as the first step in establishing a complete nationwide network of several semi mobile MTB waste tyre recycling systems in Chile. The agreement applies also some complete semi mobile mining tyre recycling solution for a total of 100 000 tons of end of life tyres per year.

CEYES is a leading consultancy firm on waste tyre recycling solutions in the Circular Economy. CEYES works together with MTB recycling (France) and with various leading European manufacturers. Together with MTB, they designed a complete semi mobile waste mining tyre solution. This is a whole new approach, small-scale local recycling in the Circular Economy. The MTB GATOR and TIRE boxes are circular, compact, mobile, efficient, effective, economical, 100 per cent recyclable and create less CO2 emissions compared to a factory building. They are ideal to recycle up to 63" OTR's local at waste tyre piles on the mining sites.

After this local recycling, TECER will use the granulates to produce the highest quality, recovered Carbon Black with another Dutch partner 'Black Bear Carbon'.

A part of the produced granulate will also be used for the production of ‘green roof storm water retention panels’ designed by CEYES for the Latin American market to further expand the waste tyre 'Closed Loop' concept.

TECER will be in operations with the first complete waste mining tyre system by the end of 2018 in Chile and it will be the first complete system in Latin America.

“The signing of the MoU between TECER and CEYES represents a significant milestone in the strategic vision of finding a sustainable circular solution that allows recovery of valuable materials from end of life mining tires”, says Sergio González de la Fuente of TECER.
