Waverly Carbon is the UK’s only Recovered Carbon Black producer. Recovered Carbon Black (rCB) produced from pyrolysed tyre char is a sustainable alternative to virgin carbon black.
About Waverly carbon
At our processing plant in Leicestershire, we can process up to 8,000 tonnes of Recovered Carbon Black every year. Waverly Carbon’s green carbon black can be used in the production of plastics, rubber and coatings. With a state-of-the-art manufacturing plant, we produce high quality Recovered Carbon Black, a sustainable carbonaceous alternative suitable for a broad cross section of industries and sectors.
Starting with the painstaking task of sourcing and selecting suitable feedstock we aim to provide customers with a consistent high end rCB material, that can be used in their operations. An array of packaging options means we can supply large and small users of carbon black.
Carefully selecting supply chain partners, Waverly Carbon works with those who can meet our raw material requirements. Working in partnership, we support suppliers to optimise their equipment and polymer formulations to be able to consistently produce the quality levels we require for carbon black manufacture.
High quality pyrolysed char is a cornerstone of our green carbon black production. Every batch that comes in to our plant is tested, up to seven different tests to check suitability, and if it does not meet our required standards it is rejected. 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.
As a carbon black manufacturer dedicated to the highest standard, our process is subject to near continuous testing throughout each stage in order to deliver a consistent finished product.
Waverly Carbon has developed a low-cost operation, efficiently producing green rCB, as a sustainable carbonaceous alternative to virgin carbon black. As a low-cost carbon black producer, we offer real savings to manufacturers.
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.
