Environmental technology company, Entyr Limited, received the Innovation Award for its world-leading thermal conversion process for end-of-life tyres at the national Waste Innovation and Recycling Awards held in Melbourne on the 25th October
Over the past two years, Australian-based Entyr Ltd has been transitioning its internationally patented thermal conversion process from research and development to full commercialisation, creating high-quality tyre-derived products which are changing the future of the environment, waste tyre disposal, and road safety.
“As a pioneering Australian company, receiving this recognition from our industry peers means so very much. To know that our commitment to solving the global waste tyre problem is acknowledged and that the industry backs a complete circular solution, strengthens our resolve to achieve full commercialisation and take our technology to the world,” said Entyr Ltd Co-founder, Mr Andrew Drennan accepting the award on behalf of the company.
Entyr Limited was awarded the Innovation Award for its low-emissions thermal baking conversion process for end-of-life tyres. The process avoids the burning of toxic waste and is controlled within an atmospherically sealed vessel with no chemical intervention. Repurposing almost 100 per cent of an end-of-life tyre, the innovative processing transforms tyres into commercially valuable products of recovered carbon black, tyre derived fuel oil, steel and gas, replacing the need for virgin resources in manufacturing, primarily tested and used in asphalt mixes.
“I would like to thank all the sponsors of the awards, particularly Veolia, who sponsored this Innovation Award. I would also like to thank the Inside Waste and Waste Management Review teams who consistently support the waste and recycling industry as we move towards complete circular solutions for waste,” said Drennan.
