An $8.5 million plant to process end of life car and truck tyres will be constructed in Longford, Tasmania.
It will be built by an Australian company, Green Distillation Technologies Corporation which recently won a bronze medal for their technology in the Edison Awards, which is the world’s top innovation award. They were Australia’s first ever finalist in the awards.
They plan to start work on the site in Longford in mid-November and to have the facility operating in June 2016. It will operate 24/7 and provide permanent employment for twelve people.
