UK’s greenest waste tire recycling plant

The Norwegian startup Wastefront AS has begun recently investing in the UK with the construction of the UK’s greenest waste tire recycling plant which will be located in the Port of Sunderland.

This has came merely a few days after his appointment where the company’s new Chief Executive Officer, Vianney Valès discussed the company’s plans for its first waste tire-to hydrocarbon plant to ELN.

He said: “We are taking end-of-life tires and repurposing them in a way, in a chemical manner, into what we call recovered carbon black, which is one of the components of tires themselves, which shows the perfect circularity of that process.”

He continued by saying that the process is also helping to produce green liquid hydrocarbon that could be used in chemicals or in marine fuels.

Mr Valès, a former top executive in oil and gas companies such as Shell and Galp Energia, stated that the project,  is predicted to begin commercial operations early 2024. It is also expected to have enough capacity to process roughly 73,000 tonnes of end-of-life tires per annum.
