A RECYCLED WATER CIRCUIT

Clean Tech, NO chemical Substances

The process with H.P.W.J. used by RubberJet it consists exclusively in the use of high pressure water in a closed circuit system in which the water itself is properly filtered and fully recycled. In addition, no chemicals are used.

The Production Cycle of H.P.W.J. occurs completely cold.

ENVIRONMENTAL BENEFITS

 ✓   No emissions into the atmosphere, soil or subsoil

 ✓   Process water reused in a “closed loop”

✓   Total absence of fumes and fine dust in the environment

✓   Total absence of “fire risk”

✓   Low noise level

✓   Product already de-vulcanized without further chemical and polluting processes

✓   Superior quality of the final product without metal particles

✓   Reduced energy per devulcanized product unit

✓   Final solution to a global problem related to the Truck and OTR tire dumps

A “real” Circular Economy with RUBBERJET

We deeply believe in research and technological progress capable of providing advanced solutions for the protection of the environment.

Our wish is to raise awareness among End-Users, manufacturers of tires and rubber products, on the ecological mission of the European Community for the next 10 years regarding the use of recycled materials.

In fact, natural rubber is collected from the Hevea Brasiliensis rubber tree, although originating in the Amazon region, over 90% of natural rubber (NR) is now produced in Southeast Asia. Natural rubber has been included since 2017 in the list of “26 European Critical Raw Materials (26 European Critical Raw Materials), having exceeded the criticality threshold relating to both supply and economic risk.

Therefore a new sustainability model is required for tire manufacturers and companies that use natural rubber.

Our model is shown below:

OUR VISION: a future tyre made by customized RJP™ & RJG™ products

OUR VISION: a future tyre made by customized RJP™ & RJG™ products

Our solution strongly encourages the recycling of tyres into powder – also granulates and steel – in order to save raw materials for the future and to reduce CO2 emissions. 

We want to make a step further and aims at closing the tyre chain through the promotion of our devulcanization process which represents the “best practice” in sustainability, actually triggering the “upcycling” concept by allowing to use the recovered rubber material for its original purpose.

Natural Rubber industry sustainability: As much as the 75% (about 13 Mton/year) of a valuable product like Natural Rubber (NR) produced worldwide goes into tyres at global level and only a negligible amount makes it back to new tyres. The “Study on the review of the list of Critical Raw Materials” , issued by the European Commission, reports that the reuse of recycled materials from End of Life Tyres (ELT)  in place of Natural Rubber is as low as 1%, and only 0,1% if considering tyre parts and tyre manufacturing, being the recycling cycle open-loop, since derived powder and granulates are used for other, low added value applications. The main reason is because rubber materials recycled from ELT through traditional technologies have low level of purity, low Natural Rubber content (giving that they arrive mainly from car tires that are formed by synthetic rubber versus OTR tires that are formed by Natural Rubber) and are vulcanised, therefore unsuitable to be used in rubber compound for tyre manufacturing. In order to be upcycled to new tyres in a closed- loop cycle, NR from ELT needs to be properly devulcanized,

This is the most suitable scenario for us, creating opportunities on both sides of the market, input (OTR) output (upcycled rubberjet powder).
