Waverly Carbon is the UK’s only producer of recovered Carbon Black (rCB). Recovered Carbon Black produced from pyrolysed tyre char is a sustainable alternative to virgin carbon black.
At our pilot plant in Leicestershire we produce high quality recovered Carbon Black. Our recovered Carbon Black can be used in the production of plastics, rubber and coatings. Our pilot plant produces high quality recovered Carbon Black suitable for a broad cross section of industries and sectors.
Starting with the painstaking sourcing and selection of suitable feedstock we aim to provide customers with a consistent high end rCB material that they can use in their operations. Our multitude of packaging options means we can supply large and small users of carbon black.
We carefully select supply chain partners based on who can meet our raw material requirements. We then work with our partners to help them optimise their equipment and polymer formulations to be able to consistently produce the quality levels we require.
High quality pyrolysed char is a cornerstone of our production. We test every batch that comes in to our plant and if it does not meet our required standards it is rejected. We run up to 7 different tests to ensure raw material is suitable. Provenance is essential and our production system has been designed to provide full traceability so that we can always identify the raw material source and its characteristics.
Our manufacturing process is subject to near continuous testing throughout each stage in order to ensure consistency of finished product.
Waverly Carbon has developed a production solution that allows it to operate a low cost base, efficiently producing rCB. As a low cost producer we offer real savings to users of carbon black.
Every tonne used of our material reduces CO2 emissions as it saves on the emissions, that would have otherwise been used in the production of virgin carbon black. Furthermore, demand for fossil fuels is reduced because it makes use of previously extracted fossil fuel; in effect rCB doubles the life of virgin carbon black. Given the CO2 emissions associated with the production of virgin carbon black, by doubling its life with a sustainable carbonaceous alternative, significantly reduces the environmental impact of carbon black usage.
At Waverly Carbon, we have invested in state-of-the-art laboratory and processing facilities, because careful analysis of pyrolysed tyre char is essential to delivering rCB that is suitable for a wide range of applications in the plastics, rubber, and coatings industries.
