Welsh JV Liquid Nitrogen Facility Opens
TyreGenics’ new £4 million recycling facility in Wales opens today. The facility, which uses liquid nitrogen to freeze shreds of tyres to below –80C before pulverising them into tiny crumbs, is the first facility of its type in northern Europe.
The new plant is said to have a capacity of 80 tonnes per day and will employ approximately 30 people. Tyres & Accessories has travelled to Baglan, near Port Talbot, for the facility’s opening ceremony, and will provide in-depth coverage of the occasion both online and in our August magazine.
