Polish end-of-life-tyre (ELT) recycler ReOil is increasing its pyrolysis activities in Bukowno and has contracted Zeppelin Systems to build a second plant there. Construction is scheduled to start in February 2024 and when completed the new plant will treble plant capacity at the 11-hectare (27-acre) site to around 60,000 tonnes of ELTs annually. Zeppelin Systems intends to provide solutions it can later offer as part of license arrangements.
Plant engineer and equipment manufacturer Zeppelin Systems launched the Zeppelin Sustainable Tire Alliance in March 2023 to pursue a goal of increasing sustainability within the tyre industry by rethinking production and recycling within the context of a circular economy. The Alliance brings together firms from around the world in order to put this vision into practice at various points in the tyre value chain. The latest to join is Siemens AG.
As Tyrepress reported on 21 March, Zeppelin Systems has recently entered into a number of tyre recycling partnerships. It considers these firms key players in its new Zeppelin Sustainable Tire Alliance, and has shared details about its new partners:
After hinting at it for a few weeks, Friedrichshafen-based plant engineering firm Zeppelin Systems is revealing the purpose of a number of recent partnerships. Zeppellin Systems is “striving to shape a sustainable future for the tyre industry and make even better use of existing potential” via the “Zeppelin Sustainable Tire Alliance”. The latest addition to the alliance is Polish company ReOil, which came on board as a new partner on 13 March 2023.
