Sustainability with Performance & Value Added Rubber Recycling – SRI Tyre Building Trials in 2011

Moving aggressively forward in our work with tyre manufacturers in 2011. While we may be at varying stages of evaluation with several tyre manufacturers globally we are breaking into 2011 straight into tyre building trials with a major producer. This effectively means a fast forward in terms of our move to addressing the global scrap tyre problem while establishing the SRI Compound Masterbatch as a standard industrial raw material.

Devulcanized content in tires will not be about fillers and the proportions will be measured against total compound and not against raw rubber content, moving towards substantial volumes and huge strides in Cleantech. The market for fine powders will also see a major change as if they are able to maintain feedstock and purity they will suddenly become raw material of choice for devulcanization with their volumes taking a major increase with year round offtake and far less dependence on state subsidies.

2011 will also see truck tires with varying SRI Compound content  being tested out in specific industry sectors which should yield very interesting data and set the tone of what is to come.

This is going to be a very significant year for us
