Montreal, QC – TheNewswire – February 1, 2022 — Ecolomondo Corporation (TSXV:ECM) (OTC:ECLMF) (the “Company” or “Ecolomondo”), a cleantech company commercializing its proprietary recycling technology, Thermal Decomposition Process (“TDP”) and specializing in the building and operation of turnkey TDP facilities globally, today announced final commissioning of the Hawkesbury TDP facility’s shredding line is now underway.
- Mechanical assembly of the Tire Shredding Line is complete and the control and electrical systems are fully ESAFE certified, setting the stage for beginning of processing end-of-life (ELT”) tires in the coming days;
- Pre-commissioning of Recovered Carbon Black (RCB) processing line is ongoing and is expected to be completed in the first week of February, and will be immediately followed by mechanical commissioning which is expected to take approximately two weeks;
- Pre-commissioning of the Thermal Processing is also ongoing with final commissioning expected to start by mid-February;
- Automation interfacing with all processing control panels is well advanced and expected to be completed in time for the beginning of ramp-up.
With shredding, RCB and Thermal Processing departments being commissioned concurrently, the facility is expected to begin ramp-up by the end of February. TDP facilities are intuitively designed to help expedite commissioning and ramp-up periods compared to other known waste-to-energy technologies.
“Ecolomondo has achieved every goal that it has set for itself since inception, and today I proudly tell shareholders, customers and supporters that Hawkesbury is cutting edge technology that I believe will set new standards in every aspect of design, production, automation, safety and environmental integrity,” states Eliot Sorella, Ecolomondo’s Chairman and CEO. “The Hawkesbury TDP facility, thanks to the many proprietary improvements, will redefine scrap tire processing, that will efficiently produce market-ready renewable products with a lower carbon footprint, and at a cheaper cost.”
Comprised of four different processing departments (shredding, thermal processing, recovered carbon black processing and oil fractionation), the facility is expected to process a minimum of 14,000 tons of tire waste per year when fully operational, producing 5,300 tons of recovered carbon black, 42,700 barrels of oil, 1,800 tons of steel, 1,600 tons of process gas and 850 tons of fiber when operating at full capacity.
On January 27th, 2022, Eliot Sorella, Chairman and CEO and other members of the management and technical team provided a Shareholder Update covering Hawkesbury TDP facility, Ecolomondo Process Technologies, and its recently announced international expansion plans beginning with the Company’s first US-based waste-to-resources six-reactor TDP facility in Shamrock, Texas.
