With our partner, Circtec, Birla Carbon actively participates in a more sustainable system. As the end-of-life tires are repurposed, steel is recovered, renewable fuels are generated and SCMs are produced to re-enter the economy.
Circtec has started the construction of their new facility in The Netherlands, set to be the most efficient and sustainable pyrolysis plant in Europe. The facility will be the largest single source of SCMs and renewable fuels using of end-of-life tires. A comprehensive Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) – conducted according to ISO 14040 and ISO 14044 standards – demonstrates that at full capacity, 73,000 tonnes of Continua™ SCM it would eliminate 228,000 tonnes of direct and indirect CO2 emissions annually when compared to the conventional carbon black process.
