Recycling of
end-of-life tyres

World's first plant to operate with innovative continuous pyrolysis technology

Reoil is Europe’s largest plant processing end-of-life tyres in a globally unique continuous pyrolysis process.

The company has the know-how, technology, experienced engineering and research staff with its R&D department and the potential necessary for new investments.

The Company has partnered with Zeppelin System AG to build further facilities to recycle end-of-life tyres.

Currently, the Company’s top priority is the construction of a second plant with a capacity of 60.000 tons end-of-life tyres a year and the realisation of several installations worldwide.

The projects are being carried out jointly with Zeppelin Systems AG under the EPC ‘turnkey’ formula, covering the full scope of design, construction and commissioning.

Continuous pyrolysis technology

Continuous pyrolysis, through full control of the process system, enables optimum use of energy and raw materials, while stabilised production allows for consistent product quality. The continuous pyrolysis process is characterised by high efficiency while minimising costs.

Products in the recycling process

Pyrolysis oil (TPO)

8600 tons / year
Tire Pyrolysis Oil (TPO) can directly replace many fossil fuel-based feedstocks and oils. It is a product widely used in the chemical and petrochemical industries.

Carbon black (rCB)

6400 tons / year

Carbon black (recovered Carbon Black – rCB) is a substance commonly used in the manufacture of tyres and other industrial rubber products. It increases the mechanical strength of the compound. Thanks to its colouring properties, it is also used in the production of dyes.

Steel

2600 tons / year

Cleaned and remelted, it can be reused. The steel used for tyre production is classed as high-quality special steel. Steel cord is distinguished by its extremely low content of textile and rubber inclusions.

Textiles

400 tons / year
Up to 1 kg of material can be recovered from one tyre, which has applications including construction. Compared to traditional concrete, textile-reinforced concrete is more resistant to cracking, more resilient and has a longer service life.

Contribution to Environmental Protection

The unique features and key technological developments of pyrolysis processes help protect the environment while contributing to solving the problem of disposing of end-of-life tyres. The continuous pyrolysis technology developed by Reoil enables gas emissions to be minimised and all the environmental requirements of the site to be met.
