Michelin to construct its first recycling plant

Michelin says it is commencing construction of its first tire recycling plant in collaboration with Enviro, a Swedish company that has developed technology to recover carbon black, oil, steel and gas from end-of-life tires.

Located in Chile’s Antofagasta region, the plant will be able to recycle 30,000 tons of earthmover tires a year, or nearly 60% of such tires scrapped every year in Chile. According to Michelin, production at the site is scheduled to get underway in 2023.
