Australian tyre recycler Green Distillation Technologies will double the production capacity of their plant at Warren in Western New South Wales with the installation of an additional processing module. Construction of the module, which turns end-of-life tyres into high value oil, carbon and steel, is underway and will be completed in April. It is proposed to install the remainder of a planned six modules next year to reach full annual processing capacity of 19,300 tonnes of tyres. Green Distillation Technologies COO Trevor Bayley (pictured) said: “Clearly, investment funds are vitally important and you have to spend money to make money and our aim is to get the Warren plant to full capacity so we can not only provide positive proof of our technology, but the economics of our process through the sale of the oil, carbon and steel we produce.”
