Carlton Forest Renewables, home of the UKs first continuous pyrolysis plant for end-of-life tyres (ELT) has announced an exciting Australian partnership with Triskel.
In a venture created to support the Australian market with its ban on the export of ELTs, Triskel will act as an agent for Carlton Forest in the ANZ and Pacific Islands region, showcasing the technology that is on offer and the positive impact it has on dealing with ELTs.
“We are very happy to have secured the deal with the Carlton Forest team and to be working with them as we seek new ways of dealing with ELTs in Australia,” said Virginie Senbel-Lynch, Managing Director of Triskel. “The vision and entrepreneurship displayed by CEO Mark Pepper and his team is incredibly impressive and represents a real game-changer in the way ELTs are recovered and processed across the globe.”
With a clear strategy to deploy plants across Australia, the partnership will showcase not only the process and how it recovers tyres, but also the valuable commodities that are manufactured as part of the pyrolysis process.
Tyre Pyrolysis Oil (TPO) and Carbon char, which can be further refined to create Recovered Carbon Black (rCB) can both deliver positive impacts of green fuel and carbon black processes reinforcing the positive environmental and sustainability messages associated with the business and its technology.
Mark Pepper, CEO, Carlton Forest Group commented; “This is a huge step forward for us and we are delighted to have found such forward-thinking, like-minded partners in Triskel, who share our vision for a circular approach to tyre recovery and recycling.
“Using pyrolysis to deal with end-of-life tyres is still a relatively untapped market, but we believe it to be one of the most viable tyre disposal solutions available to the Australian market.”
The first plant will be constructed in Brisbane, with a further five plants expected to follow in the next five years.
