Linglong Tire progressing with recycling, pyrolysis projects
Linglong Tire is examining tyre pyrolysis technology and its application to waste tyre recycling. The tyre maker shares that it organised a conference on the subject at its headquarters in Zhaoyuan, China on 24 July, an event attended by 13 academics and experts from Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Sichuan University, Zhejiang University and Beijing University of Technology.
During the conference, a Linglong Tire representative provided an update on the progress of the company’s current pyrolysis project and summarised the difficulties faced to-date. Linglong Tire’s own researchers then discussed the implementation of the project with the invited experts and planned further measures.
Wang Feng, chairman of Linglong Tire, shared that the tyre maker intends to take advantage of its nationwide sales network to recycle end of life tyres and then utilise the gas produced by the pyrolysis process as a replacement to coal for heating.
