A leading Sri Lankan tyre manufacturer has placed a first order for Enviro’s recycled carbon black, EnviroCB, for immediate delivery.
“Initially the order volume is small, but is expected to increase significantly over time. The customer is a global manufacturer of tyres and rubber applications and this order relates to industrial tyres”, says Thomas Sörensson, CEO of Enviro.
The order comes after completing thorough material tests. The tyre sector is the Holy Grail of pyrolysis firms and this is a huge step for Enviro but also a huge step for the rCB sector as its products are starting to gain recognition and acceptance in the tyre sector.
“For us, the increasing demand of recycled material as a substitute for virgin carbon black, is the most important market signal. Now that our order build-up is growing, more will see the benefits of Enviro’s patented technology and the plants we sell.”
The delivered EnviroCB will be used for industrial tyres manufactured in Sri Lanka.
“Aiming for high manufacturing growth, Sri Lanka is investing in the rubber industry, which makes the country a very interesting market for us,” says Thomas Sörensson, CEO of Enviro.”
