Black Cycle

Efficient tyre recycling for Europe

The Euro­pean Black­Cycle project aims to create a closed-loop economy for the effi­cient recy­cling of used tyres. The consor­tium, which is repre­sented in five count­ries, aims to develop a sustainable process for retur­ning mate­rials reco­vered from used tyres back to the produc­tion cycle for new tyres. In addi­tion to the coll­ec­tion and selec­tion of raw mate­rials from used tyres, this also includes opti­mi­sing the pyro­lysis process as well as refi­ning and recy­cling oil.

The team at Pyrum Inno­va­tions AG is focu­sing on the further deve­lo­p­ment and adapt­a­tion of the pyro­lysis process on both a labo­ra­tory and indus­trial scale. The aim is to obtain products exhi­bi­ting custo­mised proper­ties for optimal further recy­cling to the highest possible quality from used tyres.

Further infor­ma­tion can be found on the Black­Cycle website.
