First rCB Order from an International Tire Manufacturer

We are proud to announce a major milestone in our company’s history: we have officially begun supplying recovered carbon black (rCB) out of our production plant in Stegelitz, Germany to a major multinational tire manufacturer. This reflects the high quality and performance that our products can deliver, and shows the readiness of the tire industry to commit to this sustainable alternative to traditional carbon black.

This news was recently communicated by Pyrolyx, as part of a press release concerning its Annual General Meeting on October 15, 2015. The first commercial deliveries are expected to take place before the end of 2015. Pyrolyx also confirmed  the election of former cct AG board members Bernhard Meder and Bernhard von Reiche to the Pyrolyx AG supervisory board.

R&D Center Opening

In Q3 we opened the first rCB research and development center of its kind worldwide. The R&D center, which is close to our manufacturing facility in Stegelitz, Germany, has over 250 sqm. of space to run analytical and rubber application tests for rCB. The lab is separated into three sections; an analytics room (spectroscopy, particle dimensions, visual and compound analysis), a press room (vulcanization and physical  rubber properties) and a mixing room. Our new R&D center allows us to provide customers with unparalleled compound and product data.
