VANCOUVER — Pyrolysis Hellas SA, a partner of Klean Industries Inc.,  has completed the second phase of a detailed feasibility study to design and build a tire pyrolysis plant in Greece.

The company says that the approximate 1.5 billion tires sold worldwide create more than 26 million metric tons of end-of-life tires which serve as a partially untapped resource for material recovery.

The company aims to promote recycling through its pyrolysis plant as most ELT processes do not produce raw materials that could be reused in tire manufacturing. Instead, they are exported as tire-derived fuels for industrial use or furnaces, or they are disposed in landfills.

The PHS project is co-owned by Karabas European Hellenic Recycling SA. KEHR collects and recycles all types of scrap vehicle tires and recycles them by shredding them into rubber granules, rubber powder & shock-absorbent surfacing slabs.

PHS has partnered with Klean Industries to build a modern tire recycling facility that encompasses a state-of-the-art scrap tire pyrolysis plant to recycle 20,000 TPA of waste tires into valuable chemical products.

PHS proposes to construct and operate the Waste Tire Pyrolysis Plant in Moulkia, a seaside town near Skala, Greece. It is located at an existing industrial site that is owned by KEHR.
