At Waverly Carbon we are proud to produce Recovered Carbon Black.
We do not recycle tyres and we do not pyrolyse tyres. The only waste we deal with is our operational waste that we are continuously trying to reduce and eradicate from our manufacturing processes.
We have set up our plant so that tyre pyrolysis operators have a viable sales opportunity for their tyre char. By providing a solution for pyrolysed tyre char, we remove one of the main barriers to the establishment of an effective UK tyre recycling supply chain which includes pyrolysis. We currently work with 2 suppliers of tyre char from across the UK and further afield and look forward to welcoming more.
Producing pyrolysed tyre char can be simple. Ensuring its usable in the production of recovered Carbon Black is more challenging. Problems are significant, and managing moisture, volatiles and the presence of other matter can be tricky. High levels of sulphur can be difficult to manage and needs minimising carefully (for oil as well as carbon black).
Waverly Carbon works with suppliers to help them optimise pyrolysis output and to ensure consistency of output. Consistency of output starts with consistency of input and ensuring that a consistent mix or single type of tyre is maintained. In our manufacturing system we have full traceability and can trace production back to which supplier it came from and whether they have changed their input mix. For our material acceptance procedure we conduct tests based on ASTM specifications as approved by the ASTM D36 committee.
