Filed under: Carbon Black, Tire Recycling — Notch @ 10:42 am

Pyrolyx A.G. has begun construction of a recovered carbon black plant in Terre Haute, Indiana. The German company said once fully operational, the facility can produce nearly 13 metric tons of carbon black per year at full capacity and will be capable of recycling about 4 million tires a year, with a staff of 55.

Pyrolyx will finance the project with the proceeds of $30.2 million in Economic Development Solid Waste Facility Revenue Bonds issued by a U.S. subsidiary, Pyrolyx USA Indiana L.L.C., the company said.

Niels Raeder, CEO of the Pyrolyx Group said: “By building its second plant – now in the USA, the Pyrolyx Group is emphasizing its global expansion plans. The increase in its production capacity will uniquely allow Pyrolyx to meet the growing demand for recovered carbon black. Even before construction begins, we have signed long-term purchase contracts for Pyrolyx rCB.”

Pyrolyx expects the plant to be in operation by May 2019.

Castleton Commodities invests in Delta-Energy

Filed under: Carbon Black, Tire Recycling — Notch @ 12:41 pm

Castleton Commodities International L.L.C. has bought majority ownership of Delta-Energy Group L.L.C., a resource recovery company providing recycling solutions to the tire industry, including a patented process to recover carbon black and marketable liquid chemicals from used tires.

Bridgestone Americas, which is considered an “early-stage investor” in Delta-Energy dating back to 2014, will continue to be an active, but minority, investor, Castleton said.

Proceeds from the investment will be used to develop a commercial-scale plant in Natchez, Miss., with an estimated daily processing capacity of 100 tons of end-of-use-tires. Delta-Energy’s commercial plant will recover carbon black and other basic materials for reuse in tire production and other rubber-related manufacturing processes, as well as liquid solvents and fuels. The investment will further expand CCI’s activities in the renewables sector, which today include nearly 20 biomass electric generation facilities, emissions trading and biofuels marketing.
