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.
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.
New research has been conducted into the performance and emissions of oil from recycled tyres in a 2.5 litre diesel vehicle under real-world operating conditions.
The tests were conducted on a 2017 Hyundai iLoad van, a vehicle size that is used for city deliveries and as a people mover and has an engine capacity comparable to that widely used in light commercials, SUVs and 4WDs.
You may think an end-of-life tyre must be an old tyre and vice versa.
While that is often the case, there are some notable exceptions.
The sizes of tyres also vary considerably, which is why there is a standard measure that allows us to more easily calculate the recycling value of any end of life tyre. Read More
Exhaust emissions from oil from recycled tyres have been found to have thirty per cent less nitrogen oxide, which contributes to photochemical smog and lower particle mass than oil from fossil sources, but almost the same performance, according to research conducted by the Queensland University of Technology.
