UK Pyrolysis systems designed to create value from End of Life Tyres
Taking a non-biodegradable waste stream and producing environmentally sustainable commodities.
What We Do
WF Recycle-Tech is a UK pyrolysis technology provider producing ethical, environmentally friendly and economically viable systems to be used in the recycling of End of Life Tyres (ELTs) throughout the world.
Our patented thermo-dynamic process takes shredded rubber crumb from ELTs and breaks it down using a combination of kinetic energy and heat to produce three end products: Oil, gas and a raw recovered carbon black (rCB) all of which have commercial applications.
HF Mixing Group is one of the world’s most recognized names in rubber and tyre manufacturing equipment, supplying mixers to many of the leading tyre firms around the globe who use the equipment to form the rubber compounds that make up the foundation of a tyre. Combining this core business with WF Recycle-Tech’s patented system, we intend to close the tyre recycling loop.
Our system addresses three of the key issues in the world today:
An estimated 1.5 billion tyres reach the end of their life every year, the vast majority either consigned to landfill or incinerated.
CO2 reduction: For every tonne of rCB that is used as a substitute for virgin carbon black, carbon dioxide emissions are reduced by approximately 2.5 tonnes.
The Renewable Transport Fuel Obligation requires fuel suppliers to supply a set amount of sustainable renewable fuel as a proportion of the overall volume of fuel they supply for road transport. Certificates are issued on this basis and the use of tyre derived oil allows fuel suppliers to receive double the number of certificates for every litre/kg of biofuel produced.
Both parties have been key partners over WF Recycle-Tech’s extensive 6 year research and development programme which has seen the company refine its first generation system and hone the oil and rCB offtakes. In fact, the rCB produced to date has been labelled unique with better dispersion characteristics than that of other conventional rCB’s.
Small scale affordable plants processing 1.5 tonnes of rubber crumb from ELT’s per hour allow for systems to be strategically placed in specific locations minimising costs.
Unique patented process producing quality rCB which can be used in numerous applications from masterbatch to new tyres.
Continuous operation increasing production efficiency and reducing manual labour.
Experienced engineering team ensuring reliability of the process.
