Environ signs MoU with EE-TDF Cleveland
Scandinavian Enviro Systems AB has signed a memorandum of understanding with EE-TDF Cleveland, LLC, a US tyre-recycling company. The agreement remains in effect for six months, has an option to extend, and opens up opportunities for additional joint venture plants with an annual recycling capacity of 30,000 tonnes tyres.
“Our ambition is to sign a binding agreement over the next three months and then commence our first plant project in Q2 2019,” says Thomas Sörensson, CEO of Enviro.
The initial plant construction is planned for EE-TDF Cleveland’s existing site in Texas, US, with future plants in Louisiana and Oklahoma. The MoU paves the way for establishing additional plants in these states on the condition that the first plant is established according to plan.
Sörensson continues, “in the future, Enviro will be prioritising plants with full or joint ownership. In this instance, we will require joint ownership as part of the transaction, which is something that is also welcomed by our new partner. We see it as something positive to be joint owners in the plants that we establish in that we will benefit from their anticipated returns. This, of course, is completely in line with our new business strategy.”
