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.

Tyre recycler Green Distillation Technologies, which has developed world-first technology that transforms old tyres into oil, carbon and steel, has received environmental approval for their Warren, New South Wales plant and building development approval for their proposed Toowoomba plant.
High quality carbon is produced from old tyres by the world-first Australian process developed by Green Distillation Technologies that recycles end-of-life tyres.
This is in addition to the oil, which is an easy to refine crude that is used to make diesel, and could be further refined into jet fuel and the steel skeleton of the tyre, which either goes back to the tyre manufacturer for reuse or goes to scrap steel.
Growth in the world market for carbon has been behind a recent spate of world visitors to the see for themselves the world-first Australian process developed by Green Distillation Technologies that recycles end-of-life tyres into oil, carbon and the steel rim and beading of the tyre.
Tyre recycler Green Distillation Technologies, which has developed world-first technology that transforms old tyres into oil, carbon and steel, has received approval for their proposed Toowoomba plant from the Queensland Department of Environment and Science.
GDT’s Chief Operating Officer Trevor Bayley has said that they expected the actual development approval for construction of the plant to come before the Toowoomba Regional Council before the end of the month.
Green Distillation Technologies has already sold the oil they expect to obtain from old tyres recycled in their planned Toowoomba plant using their unique Australian technology.
GDT Chief Operating Officer Trevor Bayley said he welcomed the announcement of a Queensland Government grant to Southern Oil of Gladstone to help fund their refinery facility and performance trials of the oil from recycled tyres using a Scania V8 test engine.
The world is beating a path to GDT’s door
International interest in the unique Australian tyre recycling technology of Green Distillation Technologies has always been high.
Over the past ten days we have welcomed visitors from Pakistan, South America and Malaysia to our Warren facility where we turn end-of-life tyres into oil, carbon and the steel beading.
