We aim to produce solutions that reduce the number of product rejection and that are complying with European limitations.
benefits & environements
- Reducing the consumption or natural and synthetic rubber stocks for every new product;
- Reducing production costs related with raw material and energy consumption (3 or 4 times) in rubber production;
- Protecting the environment by avoiding rubber products dumping, by preventing from water and air pollution and by minimizing carbon foot print related to rubber production.
- A continuous process leading to high efficiency rates;
- Cost saving : less capital investment is required;
- Reducing the number of processing steps;
- Improving material properties: final products have higher quality as thermal stress is minimized and aging resistance is improved.
For the end user
- Complying with European limitations in the use of toxic compounds contrary to current recycling methods;
- Reducing the number of product rejections, due to high quality products;
- Recycling many different types of rubber wastes and scraps;
- Saving costs through the recycling used and scrap rubber materials;
- Dealing with industrial volumes, thus reducing investment costs.
- Allowing the achievement of a high quality rubber material which can be included in new material in different percentages;
- Rending the rubber suitable for being re-formulated and recurred into new rubber articles if it can be carried out without degradation of the rubber.
Using supercritical CO2
- Behaves as an upgraded solvent: non residual at the end of treatment, non-toxic, chemically inert, odorless, non-flammable and low critical temperature;
- High diffusivity close to that of gas which facilitates its penetration into a porous media;
- Acts with quick reaction times and decreases the temperature needed to devulcanize rubber, thereby reducing the degradation of the elastomeric pattern.
