Project Title: Depolymerisation Technology for Rubber with Energy Optimisation to Produce Carbon Products.
Project Location: Cork, Ireland
Project Start & End Date: 05/09/2011 – 05/12/2015
The DEPOTEC project proposes a depolymerisation process that will add value to the waste tyres by producing products that can be used as substitute carbon filler materials in the rubber manufacturing process. This will ultimately lead to a reduction in stockpiling of tyres as they will now become valuable raw materials for the production of these products. It will also offer an alternative to burning ELT to produce tyre-derived fuel.
