Purified Pyrolysis Black is Now Possible

For many years, the tyre pyrolysis sector has been plagued by claims and false claims about what the end product is. It is still common to hear processors talk about the Carbon Black they produce from car tyres.

The reality is that they produce a pyrolysis black that contains the remnants of the additives to the compounds added to the tyres to make them function.

Now a new process developed by the Fraunhofer Institute for Building Physics IBP is able to isolate almost all of this ash—allowing both the carbon black and the minerals from the ash to be reused.
