Simon Kriss has been appointed General Manager – Corporate Development of Green Distillation Technologies, an Australian start-up with world-first technology that recycles end-of life-tyres into oil, carbon and steel.
This is a new role in the company and he will focus on the go-to-market strategy and investor relations.
Tyre recycler Green Distillation Technologies, has appointed a US marketing agent to represent the company to the US tyre collection industry and equity funds.
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.
Craig Dunn, Chief Operating Officer, Green Distillation Technologies
