Tyre recycler Green Distillation Technologies has made a new application for a Queensland Government Resource Recovery grant to help built a processing plant in Toowoomba.
Australian tyre recycler Green Distillation Technologies, which has developed world- first technology that turns old tyres into oil, carbon and steel, has signed an agreement worth up to $50 million to establish up to five tyre recycling plants in South Africa.
The first group of school children to visit the Green Distribution Technologies tyre recycling plant at Warren in Western New South Wales, were able to see first-hand how the Australian world first process is able to turn end-of-life tyres into oil, carbon and steel.
An agency of the EU is investigating the environmental impact from the use of crumb rubber granules with most of the material coming from end-of-life recycled tyres.
The European Chemicals Agency, ECHA, an agency of the EU has established a time table of the steps they are taking, which is driven by health concerns from the use crumb rubber on sporting fields or children’s’ playgrounds, as well as emissions from using the material as furnace fuel.
They have particularly highlighted their concern at the presence of the carcinogenic PAH or Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons.
Tyre recycler Green Distillation Technologies, which operates a processing plant at Warren in Western New South Wales and is in the capital fund raising stage for another in Toowoomba, Southern Queensland, will conduct the first industrial trials of a revolutionary new thermoelectric device from the United States which converts heat to electric power.
The decision by the Queensland Government to not support a Resource Recovery Grant for the proposed Toowoomba tyre recycling plant has placed the project in jeopardy according to Green Distillation Technologies Chief Operating Officer Trevor Bayley.
Bringing their first tyre recycling plant at Warren, New South Wales up to full production is a priority for Green Distillation Technologies following the recent awarding of Environmental Permission by the New South Wales authorities.
It has been drawn to our attention that in our media release of 27 May we inadvertently stated that the New South Wales Environment Licence, which was issued to Green Distillation Technologies, was under a new regulation.
This was incorrect as it was actually issued under the existing regulation.
We apologise for this error and the purpose of this correction is to put the record straight for the future.
