Addressing the growing global environmental challenge of waste tires building in landfills has taken on more importance. A March 2022 article by the World Economic Forum notes: “Tire pollution contributes to the problem of both microplastic and nanoplastic pollution.”
Historically, municipalities and local governments have attempted to mitigate their growing tire landfill issue by merely burning tires. This creates even greater environmental issues with emissions and other by-products being released into the atmosphere.
Our vision and approach at InnoVent Renewables is simple: Keep Driving Renewable Energy Forward by leveraging our proven process to convert used tires into valuable products that are used in new tire production, fuels, and petrochemicals. With our process being completely closed loop – zero emissions – we have full recovery of a range of high value products that are used in the automotive and industrial sectors. Our facilities are highly mobile, enabling us to rapidly transition to new jurisdictions that want to mitigate their tire landfill challenges.
