Greenergy to produce advanced biofuels from tire waste

January 18, 2021 |

In the UK, Greenergy announces its continued commitment to renewables through an investment in advanced biofuels. Utilizing a combination of existing technologies, the project will create low carbon fuels from waste tire feedstock.

The project will utilize pyrolysis and hydrotreating technologies to convert waste tires into renewable drop-in advanced biofuels that can be used in diesel and petrol and qualify as development fuels under the UK’s Renewable Transport Fuel Obligation. The plant will also have the capability to produce sustainable aviation fuel (SAF). 

Processing up to 300 metric tons of shredded tires each day in the first phase, the manufacturing process also creates recovered carbon black, a product that can be used in the circular economy to produce new tires and other industrial rubber products.
