Atlantis Carbon Black Brings Out New Website


Atlantis Carbon Black is the latest move for Chris Twigg, with the new operation will bring a professional process to the South African market.

Atlantis Carbon Black Launches with a Website Outlining its Aims

Atlantis Carbon Black (ACB) is a new company established to exploit the recovered Carbon Black market in South Africa. The country has a surfeit of waste tyres and a shortage of processing capacity, so while there is no domestic tyre manufacturing, there is the raw material, and successful pyrolysis plants could tap into a global market from a low-cost source.

The leading lights in this new operation are Managing Director Justin Damster and Director Chris Twigg. Twigg retains a role at Black Bear Carbon in the Netherlands while establishing ACB in South Africa.

ACB aims to be producing 100,000 tonnes of rCB sustainably and cost-effectively by 2030. To do this, ACB is seeking suppliers of pyrolysis char for reprocessing and refining to create a high-quality rCB.
