Demineralization of Carbon Black Derived from End-of-Life Tires

NODE
Technical Thrust
Recycling & Recovery
Characterization, Cleaning, & Purification Technologies
About

Alternative process technologies will be experimentally evaluated to upgrade carbon black recovered from end-of-life tires to meet carbon black market quality specifications. Approximately 3.87 Mt of waste tires accrue every year in the United States. If all these tires were processed to recover the carbon black, about 1.1 Mt of carbon black could be recovered to use as a secondary feedstock.
