Mr. Jens Elton Andersen, CEO WindSpace
Mr. Bob MacBean - CEO Environmental Waste International
WindSpace A/S, a Danish wind energy and green tech development company, entered the recovered carbon black market in 2018, projecting a large-scale tire recycling, Elysium Nordic, in Denmark. Now the company has signed an exclusivity agreement with Canada’s Environmental Waste International Inc. (EWS), which specializes in eco-friendly systems for the breakdown of organic materials, including tires.
A plant in Nyborg, Denmark will be the first under the agreement. The agreement also includes a long-term partnership between the companies and a mutual exclusivity agreement for the development and installation of waste tire recycling plants across Europe.
WindSpace has been working on the establishment of Elysium Nordic since 2018. Following “an exhaustive search” and thorough evaluation, the company said it decided to conclude the agreement with EWS. Both companies said they were delighted to see the partnership formalized, calling it “a perfect match between the project development and execution capabilities of WindSpace and EWS’ technology and experience in recycling waste tires.”
EWS has developed a proprietary system for processing rubber tires through a unique microwave technology that safely processes and recycles waste tires, while recovering highly valuable commodities, including reclaimed carbon black (rCB), steel, syn gas and oil. Each unit is designed to be environmentally safe, energy efficient, and economically profitable for the operator.
The commercialization of EWS’ Reverse Polymerization™ technology represents a momentous breakthrough in dealing with one of the world’s most stubborn waste problems in an environmentally friendly manner.
According to WindSpace, the first Elysium Nordic plant in Nyborg will be capable of processing 30,000 tonnes of end-of-life tires annually.
Jens Elton Andersen, CEO of WindSpace said, “We are very happy to enter the tire recycling business in partnership with EWS. We are looking forward to a long and successful partnership in Europe.”
Bob MacBean, EWS CEO said, “We are delighted to have WindSpace as our partners in Europe. This endorsement from a sophisticated and experienced group is an important milestone which confirms our belief that our technology is the best-in-class solution to the worldwide reclamation of waste rubber problem. The timing seems right for our long-term developmental efforts to be rewarded. We are currently in various stages of discussion with prospective customers or partners around the world, which underscores the global nature of the problem and the attractiveness of our solution.”
