Sweden-based Enviro signs MoU with Treadcraft on tire recycling plant in Buffalo
New recycling plant to process a minimum of 30,000 tonnes of end-of-life tyres per year
Scandinavian Enviro Systems AB (Enviro) has signed an MoU (Memorandum of Understanding) with Treadcraft Limited to establish a new recycling plant in the city of Buffalo, New York. The contracting party, Treadcraft Limited, based out of Wainfleet, Ontario, was incorporated in 2007, and is today active on the North American market. According to Sweden-based Enviro the agreement is valid for a period of 6 months and applies to a recycling plant of minimum 30,000 tonnes of end-of-life tyres per year, and the project has great support from both the State of New York and the city of Buffalo. The ambition is to start the project at the end of this year, according to Thomas Sörensson, CEO of Enviro.
"The collaboration will produce a full scale facility, capable of processing a minimum of 30,000 tons of scrap tire material annually, located in the Buffalo, New York area, close to international transportation routes for ease of materials transportation to and from the facility," said Terry Gilmore, President of Treadcraft Limited.
Treadcraft says they are pleased to partner with Scandinavian Enviro Systems of Sweden and their process to produce valuable recycled carbon black for industry from this waste tire material. Treadcraft is working closely with large industrial companies, in several sectors, to introduce the economic and environmental benefits of recycled carbon black produced by the Scandinavian Enviro Systems' process.
According to Enviro, the project has great support from the state, regional, and local officials in the Buffalo Niagara Region (New York) who believe the Scandinavian Enviro Systems business fits with their long term plan to reform their heavy industrial past with the new "green" industries of the future."
