Michelin has partnered with Enviro to develop and commercialise an innovative pyrolysis technology to recycle old tyres.
This innovative technology enables the conversion of used rubber into high-quality products, such as recovered carbon black, pyrolysis oil, steel and gas, that can be reused in various industrial sectors.
Swedish startup Enviro says it has developed a technology to modify the chemical composition of the material during the pyrolysis process while ensuring minimal energy consumption.
Sonia Artinian-Fredou, Michelin’s Services and Solutions, High Technology Materials Business Director, said: “The partnership we have just signed with Enviro fits perfectly with Michelin’s ‘All Sustainable‘ vision.
“After the acquisition of Lehigh Technologies in 2017, a specialist in high-tech micro-powders derived from recycled tyres, this is a further proof of Michelin’s long-term commitment to recycling and sustainable mobility.”
