Farrel Pomini, a firm that specialises in polymer blending and equipment has announced an investment in WF Recycle-Tech, a United Kingdom company with a patented pyrolysis system for recycling end-of-life tyres.  The WF Recycle-Tech system offers a distinct and pioneering approach to the pyrolysis methods currently available.

The partnership, formalised in February 2021, allows WF Recycle-Tech to leverage the strength of Farrel Continuous Mixing Technology as well as Farrel Pomini’s engineering and manufacturing capabilities to create a solid platform within the pyrolysis sector closing the tyre recycling loop by bringing to market a unique and reliable system for processing end-of-life tyres and producing viable recovered material outputs, according to the Farrel Pomini press release.

Farrel Pomini’s investment in WF Recycle-Tech provides it with an entry into the end-of-life tyre recycling equipment market. Customers will be able to utilise the WF Recycle-Tech system as a solution for end-of-life tyres and generate material inputs for the compounding and masterbatch industries. 

According to Paul Lloyd, Farrel Pomini President; “We are delighted to announce this investment and partnership with WF Recycle-Tech.  We feel it brings significant opportunities for FARREL POMINI to both support WF Recycle-Tech with our commercial and technical expertise while offering our customers, and those of HF MIXING GROUP, an opportunity to utilize the patented system or its outputs.  These innovations will help drive the closing of the tire recycling loop and improve sustainability across several of our business sectors. Farrel Pomini strives to add value for our plastics compounding customers which will ultimately drive more environmentally neutral plastic-based solutions.  With the WF Recycle-Tech partnership, we feel we are connecting these goals and providing innovative solutions to our customers.”

The Research and Development Team of Farrel Pomini is working to optimise compounding applications utilising recovered carbon black to offer existing and potential customers support with processing materials to provide a more sustainable solution to their compounding needs.
